Over the last few years, Stanley Black & Decker, the world's largest tools and storage company, has been reporting their sustainability goals with CDP, a nonprofit organization with the goal of helping companies track their overall environmental impact.
In a corporate responsibility announcement, Stanley Black & Decker confirmed they would reach "carbon positivity" by 2030, in addition to improving the sustainability of products as well as the lives of their employees.
A few months later, the company made the CDP A-List, which is essentially a list recognizing organizations for disclosure and management of environmental risks, water security, climate change, and deforestation; fortunately, it has managed to remain on the list ever since then.
In 2020, Stanley Black & Decker announced a 10% boost in renewable energy consumption as well as a 20% reductions in energy use, carbon emissions, water use, and overall waste generated by its facilities.
"We believe that if we help people and the planet flourish, so will our business, so we've always set goals to help track our progress on sustainability. CDP is a "north star" for environmental, social, and governance efforts, since it brings all the right stakeholders together to ask questions.” says Deb Geyer, the corporate responsibility officer at Stanley Black & Decker.
