We work, design, manufacture, market, sell and transport our products with sustainability in mind. We are committed to our ECOSMART™ plan and embedding environmental awareness into everything we do, across our entire value chain.
“We see sustainability as a competitive differentiator that reinforces our position as a responsible business leader, improves our performance and fortifies our brands.”
Deb Geyer, Vice President, EHS and Corporate Social Responsibility
We measure our performance and are committed to transparent reporting. Every year, we publish a scorecard that clearly demonstrates how we continue to improve the sustainability of our operations, our products and our communities while helping our suppliers and our customers to do the same.
We have set targets to reduce our environmental impacts by an additional 20% by 2020*. These targets include:
Reducing operational energy consumption by 20%
Reducing operational water consumption by 20%
Reducing operational waste generation by 20%
Of the total waste generated by 2020, 80% will have a reuse or recycling disposition
Reducing carbon emissions by 20%
*Over our 2015 baseline.
Our ongoing environmental sustainability efforts have gained recognition from key monitors of corporate performance. For the sixth consecutive year, we were named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America. This list is recognized as a benchmark for investors in several categories including Climate Strategy, Corporate Citizenship and Philanthropy, Human Capital Development, and more. CDP, an international nonprofit organization that supports sustainable economies, identified Stanley Black & Decker as a global leader in climate disclosure practices for the fourth consecutive year. CDP also named us to their Climate A List for our actions and strategies in response to climate change.
