Environmental Sustainability

Green Buildings
As a major manufacturer, our operations have a significant impact on the environment through the energy and resources we use and the waste we generate.
Reducing the environmental impact of our operations - and helping our customers and suppliers to do the same - reduces costs and helps us to comply with legal and regulatory requirements.
 

Concerns around rising energy costs and energy security mean the environmental performance of products is of increasing interest to our customers. See Product stewardship for more on how we are tackling the environmental impacts of our products and developing technologies that can help customers use energy more efficiently and reduce their CO2 emissions.


Environmental management Energy and climate change Materials use Waste and recycling
We have set objectives to improve the environmental performance of our operations and tackle our biggest impacts. Our businesses have set targets to cut energy use which accounts for the majority of our greenhouse gas emissions. We use a range of hazardous and non-hazardous materials and have set targets to cut water consumption at our sites. We are working to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and increase the amount recycled as part of our environmental objectives.
