Our commitment to environmental sustainability remains core to the way we operate, particularly with regard to climate, waste and water.
Our 2030 targets of going beyond carbon neutral, achieving zero waste to landfill (ZWTL) and ensuring sustainable water use across our operations continue to reflect our long-standing commitment to making a lasting, positive change for our communities and the world.
Sustainability is a fundamental part of our culture, as demonstrated through our support of and alignment with the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. We work actively toward cleaner water, minimizing waste generation and landfilling, and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions to lessen climate risk and find climate opportunities.
Climate change is the defining issue of our time. That’s why we’re investing in transforming our operations, vastly reducing the carbon impact of our products and leading our supply chain to do the same.
Actions to Goal
- Go beyond carbon neutral across our operations1
- Set and meet context-based water targets, where relevant and necessary
- Achieve Zero Waste to Landfill across our operations2
2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
All large companies, inclusive of Stanley Black & Decker, have a key role to play in accelerating the ambitious actions needed to secure a future where people and planet can thrive by upholding the U.N. Global Compact 10 Principles and advancing the SDGs. We work actively toward cleaner water, minimizing waste generation and landfilling, and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions to lessen climate risk and find climate opportunities.
|Scope 1||Scope 2||Scope 3|
|(Stationary and Mobile) All direct emissions from those activities under our control. Including fuel combustion on-site such as gas boilers and service fleet emissions.||Indirect emissions from electricity purchased and used.||Our suppliers’ Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions|
Sometimes numbers speak louder than words.

(1) Our operations means where we buy fuel (Scope 1) and/or electricity (Scope 2).
(2) Operational/Operations means manufacturing sites and distribution centers only.
Note: Our 2030 goals for carbon, water and waste exclude those factory outlets, service centers and offices where we are unable to directly influence the purchase of energy, water and disposal of waste.
