2015 performance

Eco-efficiency

On the environmental front, we made a further slight reduction to our CO2 emissions compared to the baseline year. By the end of 2015 the reduction achieved of 26% went well beyond the Vision 2015 target of a 20% reduction that we set back in 2010.

Although the impact of metal emissions to air increased slightly in 2015, the overall performance over the Vision 2015 period represented a reduction of emissions of 37% - well beyond the target of 20%. In terms of water emissions the overall reduction was 26% over the period with the remedial actions that were put into place after the storm water related incident in Hoboken in 2014 having the desired effect. 

With regards to product sustainability, the learning generated from the APS screening tool between 2011 and 2015 is being incorporated by the business units in their formulation of product and service sustainability objectives as part of Horizon 2020.
