Corporate Social Responsibility

Performance Metrics

At Stanley Black & Decker, we are committed to transparent reporting of our environment, health and safety results. Using 2015 as a baseline, we set five-year targets to reduce adverse impacts on our people and our planet while improving the sustainability of our products.

Meeting Our 2020 Goals

We are proud to announce that in June of this year we reached our 2020 Energy, Carbon, Waste and Water Goals:

  • 20% reduction in our energy use, carbon emissions, water use and waste generated in our facilities
  • 80% of waste generated will be recycled or reused
  • 65% of our manufacturing sites and distribution centers externally EMS certified
  • 10%+ renewable energy consumption
  • Zero life-changing injuries

After reaching these milestones, we have now set our sights on new 2023 interim goals. Setting shorter-term goals that remain fully aligned with our longer-term strategic objectives is key to ensuring local engagement, participation, adaptation, momentum and transparency.

Our 2023 Operational Goals
