Our environmental journey

Since beginning our environmental journey in 2007, we have saved more than 2.43 million megawatt hours of electricity, more than 1.22 million metric tons of CO2 and generated more than US$326 million in energy savings.

Reducing our environmental impact is built into our Code of Business Ethics (COBE) and our core values, specifically Stewardship. These inform our Environmental Responsibility Policy, which was established in 2007 and is reviewed annually by our Environment governance group.

Accountability for our environmental strategy starts at the top and cascades to the governance bodies that oversee our environmental policy and corporate objective of fostering environmentally sustainable growth.

We agree with the industry-led Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) that enhanced disclosure of climate-related financial risks improve financial impact assessments and support the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Engaging our people

Our people are passionate about applying their skills to help the environment.

With more than 550,000 people worldwide, our collective actions can have a large-scale impact on climate solutions.
