SC Johnson Announces New GHG Emissions Reduction Goal
SC Johnson has committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its U.S. operations by eight percent from 2005 by the end of 2010.
In 2005, the EPA recognized SC Johnson as one of the first corporations to achieve its initial voluntary greenhouse gas reduction goals made through the EPA’s Climate Leaders Program. The company had committed to reducing its GHG emissions on an absolute basis by eight percent from 2000 to 2005. By 2005 the company says it had achieved a GHG reduction of over 17 percent.
By the end of 2010, the company has also pledged to reduce GHG emissions by 12 percent from worldwide manufacturing operations (2000 baseline year); reduce solid waste, air and water emissions by 50 percent (2000 baseline); and source 40 percent of its global electricity from green energy.
Since 2000, SC Johnson says it has reduced its GHG emissions from the company’s top factories by 42 percent. The results were driven by the construction of two green energy cogeneration turbines which power SC Johnson’s largest global manufacturing plant in Racine, Wisconsin.
