Sustainability: Environmental Stewards
Environment: Promoting Resilience
Climate change and resource scarcity pose risks to the success of any business in the 21st century. We are in a unique position to create positive change through both our corporate initiatives and our products, with an emphasis on energy efficiency, water consumption, and a safer, more sustainable grid infrastructure.
As we continue to support our long-term commitment to limit the environmental impacts of our business, we have created the Hubbell Sustainability and Infrastructure Management Handbook, which provides guidelines on improving the efficiency and sustainability of our facilities. The Handbook provides guidance for sites to implement energy efficiency and water conservation projects including the utilization of our energy efficient Hubbell Lighting products.
ESTABLISHING OUR GOALS
In 2019, we completed an inventory of our worldwide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and water consumption in order to develop the reduction goals set forth below.
We have set a goal to reduce the carbon intensity of our emissions from direct operations: We will decrease our absolute scope 1 and 2 emissions by 10% by 2025 over a base year of 2019.
[2019 baseline 144 MT; 2025 goal 130 MT]
We have set a goal to reduce our water consumption 10% by 2025 over a base year of 2019.
