We measure and report on our overall energy and carbon, water, waste, and sales fleet fuel efficiency performance. We include data gathered from 17 manufacturing, research and development, and distribution facilities in North America, South America, Asia, and Europe, representing approximately 88 percent of our operations—based on our facilities’ square footage. Energy and carbon usage in the remaining 12% of square footage, primarily administrative offices, is estimated. Recently acquired facilities are outside the scope of this report. Our 2019 environmental data have undergone limited assurance by Apex Companies, LLC.
