Our Planet Vision

Responsible energy, waste and water management to help protect our natural resources

Our 2030 Planet Goals

  • Achieve 50% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
  • Reach >25% renewable energy consumption

At nVent, being a good steward of the environment is integral to how we operate. Innovation, adaptability and our continuous improvement approach allow us to help protect natural resources and provide value to our customers and the communities where we live and work.

In 2021, we set goals to reduce our Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 25% and reach 20% renewable energy consumption by 2030. In our first year since announcing these goals, we progressed faster than expected. With the help of renewable energy contracts, we nearly achieved our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions goal with reductions in CO2. Based on this progress, we are raising our targets in both areas. We will now work towards achieving a 50% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions and reaching greater than 25% renewable energy consumption by 2030. Reducing our carbon emissions and using more green energy are important steps we are taking to combat global climate change.

Reducing and diverting waste and reducing our water consumption are also important for minimizing our impact on natural resources. We seek to optimize our resource efficiency and focus on reducing water consumption in water-stressed areas of the world.
