  • Our goals:*

  • Our accomplishments:*

  • Reduce normalized carbon emissions 20% by 2023 and 50% by 2028**

  • We reduced normalized CO2 emissions 9% in 2019 for all our owned and operated facilities.

  • Reduce normalized electricity usage at owned and operated manufacturing facilities 10% by 2023.

  • We reduced normalized electricity usage 10% in 2019, achieving our goal ahead of schedule.

  • Incorporate 25% renewable energy into overall normalized manufacturing energy usage by 2027.

  • We are actively exploring opportunities to achieve this goal.

  • Reduce absolute waste to landfill 20% by 2023.

  • We reduced our absolute waste to landfill 5% in 2019 and remain on track to achieve a 20% reduction by 2023.

  • Increase overall manufacturing waste diversion rate to 75% by 2028.

  • We achieved an 82% waste to landfill diversion rate in our manufacturing sites in 2019, achieving our goal ahead of schedule.

  • Achieve two zero-waste certified manufacturing facilities and one office building by 2023.

  • We are making great progress on waste reduction and are actively working toward our zero-waste goal.

    Additionally, we eliminated 100% of polystyrene cups and to-go containers from our corporate headquarters cafeteria and break rooms, reducing 24,000 cups a year.
