Goal 7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
We have a company-wide energy management standard which references international benchmarks and best practices and is used by our teams to identify potential energy gaps in our operations. All sites are required to develop five-year energy improvement plans to address these gaps through operational improvements, effective maintenance and the implementation of best available techniques and novel technologies.
Several energy-saving activities are underway at our manufacturing sites including:
- Assessing our equipment to increase operational efficiency and decrease overall fuel use. We are exploring opportunities to expand the assessment, in particular our energy-intensive sites in the U.S. and Europe.
- Building capability and continuous learning are fundamental to our success. Our Energy Excellence Program provides specialized learning and development opportunities for our people and enhances the exchange of knowledge and best practices among our sites.
