Journey Toward Sustainability

 

2012 Corporate Responsibility Report

Our annual Corporate Responsibility Report highlights our commitment to protecting the health and safety of our people, supporting organizations within our communities, safeguarding the environments where we do business and acting with integrity.

Energy Projects Save Millions

 

Energy Projects

In 2012, Textron business units completed more than 120 energy efficiency projects that saved 120,000 MMBtus of energy and $2.6 million.

Environmental Health & Safety

Environmental, Health and Safety

An important part of our mission is to minimize the environmental impact of our business operations. At the same time, we are committed to maintaining and enhancing the wellbeing of our employees.

Safety

Our Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) performance goal is one of continuous improvement. Each year we work to improve workplace safety and the health of our employees and to lessen our impact on the environment. We measure our progress across our business units against global operational policies and standards. We also encourage our business units to reinforce our goals by developing programs tailored to their culture and work environment.

We remain focused on achieving our ultimate vision of zero injuries and zero adverse environmental impact.

Preserving Our Environment

In all our operational facilities, we are committed to protecting our environment - starting by complying with regulatory and internal standards and then by reducing the energy and natural resource intensity of our operations. In 2008, we began to measure key environmental performance indicators such as energy and fuel consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and waste disposal.

In 2010, Textron launched its Vision 20/15 Sustainability Goals - a proactive five-year program to reduce energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and waste by 20 percent by 2015. Tese are intensity-based goals, which are normalized to revenue (i.e., energy use per dollar of revenue) to account for variations in manufacturing activity.
