Cleaner air, less waste and a brighter future…for everybody. Our commitment to environmental sustainability remains core to how we operate, particularly with regard to climate, waste and water.
Climate change remains the defining issue of our time. That’s why we’ve made sustainability a fundamental part of our culture, as demonstrated through our alignment with the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.
Across our entire global enterprise, we’re making clear progress on reducing our overall operational environmental footprint, including energy consumption (Scope 1 and Scope 2), water stewardship and waste generation and landfilling.
Actions To Goal
42% reduction in absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 2030 from a 2022 baseline1
100% zero waste to landfill for global manufacturing and distribution sites by 20402
2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
All large companies, including Stanley Black & Decker, have a key role to play in accelerating the ambitious actions needed to secure a future where people and the planet can thrive by upholding the U.N. Global Compact 10 Principles and advancing the SDGs. We’re working actively toward cleaner water, minimizing waste generation and landfilling and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions to lessen climate risk and find climate opportunities.
“Combating climate change and building resiliency into our operations remains a key strategic priority for Stanley Black & Decker. We continue to invest in decarbonizing our operations through process innovation, on- and off-site renewable energy programs, including on-site solar and management system enhancements.”

See our progress.
1. Scope 1: All direct emissions from those activities under our control, stationary and mobile, including fuel combustion on-site such as gas-fired furnaces and boilers. Scope 2: Indirect emissions from electricity purchased and used.
2. Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWTL) goal applies to our our manufacturing facilities and distribution centers where we have control of the operations and Incineration with energy recovery is included in our ZWTL performance.
