Greenhouse Gas & Energy

We established GHG and energy goals guided by industry benchmarking, along with the results of the third-party environmental materiality assessment. These goals are outlined below:

GOALS
  • Stabilize GHG emissions by 2025 to the 2014 level;
  • Reduce GHG intensity (tons/$million revenue) by 20% by 2020 against 2014 baseline; and
  • Reduce energy intensity (GJ/$million revenue) by 25% by 2020 against 2014 baseline.

While these goals apply to Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, we also track and continue to work to reduce Scope 3 emissions, internally by making tools available to reduce the necessity for employee travel and increasing use of telecommunications, and externally by working with our supply chain partners.

Each operating company is responsible for identifying and executing its own strategy to meet greenhouse gas and energy reduction goals. Through the environmental materiality assessment results, operating companies are equipped with specific opportunities and able to prioritize effective reduction strategies.
