At Stanley Black & Decker, our commitment to environmental sustainability remains core to the way we operate, particularly with regard to climate, waste
Our 2030 targets of becoming better than carbon neutral (what we call carbon positive), achieving zero waste to landfill (ZWTL) and ensuring sustainable water use across our operations continues to reflect our long-standing commitment to make 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 UN 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 opportunity.

Action Toward Goal***
Go Beyond Carbon Neutral Operations
By 2030, we aim to reduce our operational carbon emissions to zero and eliminate additional emissions through means of carbon capture, such as carbon removal and other mitigation technologies.
Sustainable Water Use
We aim to use water sustainably wherever we do business. We are identifying water risks and setting context-based targets that address site-specific concerns in each river basin, a key consideration due to localized water availability and risk.
Zero Waste to Landfill
We continue to work toward achieving zero waste to landfill (ZWTL) across our daily, direct operations (one-off construction and other events may be excluded). We encourage waste minimization, reuse and recycling in all instances as reflected in our 2023 interim goals.
***Note: Our 2030 CSR Carbon | Water | Waste goals exclude those Factory Outlets | Service Centers | Offices where we are unable to directly influence the purchase of energy, water and disposal of waste due to tenant or other status.
