GHG Reduction Target

Consistent with ITW’s commitment to continuous improvement in reducing our impact on the environment, we have established a company-wide greenhouse gas emissions intensity reduction target.

ITW sets target to reduce by 2027 its combined Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions per US dollar of operating revenue by 20 percent below 2017 levels.

Our approach to these reductions will be focused on two primary areas: 

1) Reducing energy consumption and improving operational efficiency in our manufacturing and ITW-owned facilities, implemented in accordance with our division-led environmental management systems; 

2) Expanding our purchase of energy from renewable sources, including wind and solar, across our global footprint where possible.
