For more than 20 years, SC Johnson has set environmental goals every
five years and regularly reported the results. This commitment continues
with our 2013 Public Sustainability Report, which offers updates on our
efforts to minimize landfill waste, further manage our footprint
through greenhouse gas reduction, continue to improve product chemistry,
and make life better for families.
2000, SC Johnson has lowered its greenhouse gas emissions by 40.2% and reduced global manufacturing waste by 62%. The
2012/13 year brought significant investment in increasing our use of
renewable energy, with the launch of two wind turbines at our largest
global manufacturing facility.
We also introduced two new
products in our Green Choices Marketplace that target reduced landfill
waste: our Smart Twist™ cleaning system, a refillable system for
concentrated cleaners, and Ziploc® Brand compostable bags for use in
commercial composting programs.
Other highlights of the report include:
