What will it take to create a more sustainable world? Everything from water stewardship to pledging to be carbon neutral by 2030. At Stanley Black & Decker, our commitment to environmental sustainability remains core to the way we operate, particularly with regard to climate, waste and water.

Those kinds of commitments have led to Stanley Black & Decker being named among Barron’s “100 Most Sustainable Companies” for 2022.

Sustainability is an integral part of our culture. We work actively toward cleaner water, curtailing waste generation and landfilling, and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions—goals we encourage all to share.

Go Beyond Carbon Neutral Operations (Carbon Positive)

By 2030, we plan to have reduced our operational carbon emissions to zero and eliminate additional emissions through means of carbon capture, such as carbon removal technologies.

Sustainable Water Use
We aim to use water sustainably wherever we do business. We are identifying water risks and setting context-based targets that address site-specific concerns in each river basin, a key consideration due to localized water availability and risk.

Zero Waste to Landfill
We continue to work towards achieving zero waste to landfill across our daily, direct operations (one-off construction and other events may be excluded). We encourage waste minimization, reuse and recycling in all instances.

Our 2030 targets of becoming better than carbon neutral, achieving zero waste to landfill and ensuring sustainable water use across our operations continues to reflect our long-standing commitment to make a lasting, positive change for our communities and the world.
