Design For Recovery

Increasing Recycling

Statement Of Support

In 2017, we announced our commitment to a closed-loop supply chain—where products are made using recycled or renewable materials only. And where we return an equivalent amount of material back to the market to be used by us or others.

We hold ourselves to a strict definition of closed loop: To meet our goal, we must use 100 percent responsibly sourced recycled or renewable materials and ensure the equivalent amount is returned to market.

Combined
These goals or statements have overlap among more than one category

Responsible Fiber Sourcing

Suggest an Edit

For renewable materials such as the wood fiber in our packaging, our focus is on regeneration of supply, meaning that we create, or protect, an equivalent supply of the resource that we use.

Wherever possible, we use recycled paper. But when virgin paper is needed in our packaging, we require our suppliers to source it from sustainably managed forests or FSC controlled wood sources.

Bio-based / Renewable Materials

Suggest an Edit
Statement Of Support

Wherever possible, we’re moving to recycled or bio-based plastics, and in some cases, like for our packaging, we’re working to eliminate the need for plastics altogether.

 

Renewable / Alternative Energy

Suggest an Edit

goal of putting 4 gigawatts of new clean energy online in our supply chain by 2020

Energy Consumption

Suggest an Edit
Statement Of Support

We aim to promote continual improvement, build technical capabilities, and increase awareness of the environmental and financial benefits of energy efficiency.

Material Efficiency

Suggest an Edit
Statement Of Support
We include all the energy used for shipping and recycling in our carbon footprint. So we strive to make our packaging smaller or lighter so less fuel is consumed when we transport products by air and sea.

Water Consumption

Suggest an Edit
Statement Of Support

We work to minimize the water we use, especially in areas of elevated water risk.

Once we have minimized our water use, we look to alternative sources to help reduce freshwater withdrawals, including recycled water, reclaimed water, and rainwater harvesting.

We‘re looking to restore water resources in the most critical regions in which we operate.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Suggest an Edit
Statement Of Support

We’re always looking for ways to make the biggest difference in five major areas: facilities, manufacturing, product use, transportation, and recycling.

Manufacturing / Operational Waste

Suggest an Edit

We’re committed to making sure all the waste created by our own facilities and in our supply chain is reused, recycled, composted, or when necessary, converted into energy.
