Our largest positive contribution to protecting the environment comes from developing lighting solutions that reduce the energy use and GHG emissions during their use phase, thereby supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. We also reduce the impacts embedded within our products by avoiding or minimizing the use of hazardous substances, setting standards for supplier envionmental performance and innovating to improve the efficiency of lighting solutions
Our manufacturing operations are the primary contributor to our own environmental footprint. To reduce this impact, we pursue comprehensive programs to improve the efficiency of manufacturing, lower energy and water use, reduce waste, and reduce negative impacts from chemical processes.
We are guided by our 2020 goals to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations:
|202 Goals (2015 baseline)||Progress in 2018|
|20% reduction in carbon emissions||On track|
|20% reduction in energy consumption in manufacturing||On Track|
|20% reduction in water intake||On Track|
|Recycle 85% of total waste||In Progress|
