Keeping our planet healthy is essential to keeping people healthy. We need a thriving environment—flourishing forests, clean water and unpolluted air—to support the well-being of people and all forms of life. This necessitates using resources wisely. This is why we set environmental stewardship goals and track and report our progress towards them.
In 2010, GOJO first announced our voluntary five-year goals to minimize our environmental impact—committing to reduce emissions, water use and solid waste. By 2013, we exceeded our reduction targets; however, we did not stop there. In 2015, when we reflected on our accomplishments, we chose to raise the bar. Our 2020 Sustainable Value Goals involve our entire value chain, from raw material suppliers to operations and production to responsible in-field end-of-product-use management.
