The Eaton Difference: Inside the green building
Eaton: A bigger impact on the marketplace, a smaller footprint on the world
Eaton believes that companies everywhere must answer the same question over the next decade: How can we sustain our growth,
both profitably and responsibly? And we believe tomorrow's leaders will be the companies that master sustainable
Eaton's commitment to sustainability is long-standing. We are a member of the Canadian and U.S. Green Building Councils, the
Green Grid and the Green Suppliers Network, and we participate in the international Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). As a
member of the Business Roundtable's Climate RESOLVE initiative, we have pledged to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions
intensity by 18 percent (adjusted for sales) by 2012. And, we published our first public sustainability report sharing our
progress toward our sustainability goals in 2006.
Our operations put our beliefs about sustainability into practice. In 2007, we will begin measuring the performance of all of
our facilities against our Global Management System of Environment, Safety, Security and Health (MESH), a unified system for
managing our environmental, safety and health initiatives across the globe. We pursue a wide range of initiatives to improve
our efficiency, conserve resources and protect the health and safety of our employees. And we're achieving results. Our new
plant in Shandong province, China, has been praised as a model of environmentally conscious development. An energy
conservation program at our truck transmission plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, reduced energy consumption by 40 percent.
Over the past two years, our valve manufacturing plant in Searcy, Arkansas, has shrunk its generated waste by 70 percent. And
we strive to help our customers go green. Our automobile engine superchargers help automakers use smaller, cleaner engines
that deliver the horsepower consumers crave, plus the fuel efficiency they desire. Our Hybrid Power Systems boost fuel economy
and reduce emissions in trucks and buses.
