We are in the business of changing how the world works. Here’s a look at how we meet these challenges head-on.
Approximately 50% of our research and development spend on new product introductions is related to sustainability, much of which relates to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. From our carbon neutrality pledge to solutions that help our customers reach their goals, we are in a unique position to help industries improve their sustainability.
Our global programs emphasize science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, inclusion and diversity, humanitarian relief and child and family safety. These programs have delivered significant and meaningful results in communities around the world.
Our Response to COVID-19
From scaling up mask production to enabling mass vaccination events, we’ve leveraged our productivity and supply chain to quickly battle the pandemic globally.
Our own worker safety record is more than 4x better than the average of the industries in which we operate, as calculated by industry averages published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Here’s a sample of what we’ve accomplished so far.
Reduction in our own greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions since 2004.
Sustainability projects completed since 2010, saving an annualized $100M
Improvement in energy efficiency since 2004
Elementary, middle, high school and university students have participated in our STEM programs.
