A Word from the CEO
Sustainability touches all aspects of our business, from designing and producing our products, to selling and delivering them to our customers, to handling them at the end of their lifecycle. Sustainability helps guide us to make the right decisions for our customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders, and the communities we operate in. We want to manage our business sustainably to keep METTLER TOLEDO positioned for long-term growth.
Our GreenMT program is designed to help save energy and resources. We do this in four key areas:
- By developing products using our Design for Environment criteria that allow us and our customers to reduce energy usage, material, and product waste,
- Through energy efficiency projects to reduce energy usage at our sites,
- In managing our sales and service fleets to reduce our fuel consumption, and
- By reducing the environmental impact of our resource consumption, especially in processes related to cooling and packaging.
Our goal is to reduce our carbon footprint by the end of 2020 by 20 percent (relative CO2 emissions per net sales compared with 2010) and at the same time realize financial benefits. We are well on track to achieve these goals.
