Our Products Vision

Innovative solutions that deliver efficiency, safety and reduced resource consumption, creating a more sustainable future

Our New Products Goals

  • Reach >90% of products in our active New Product Introduction funnel with a positive impact in at least one of our three Products pillar ESG categories by 2025 
  • Make product environmental data 100% digitally accessible to customers by 2025

We focus on developing highly differentiated solutions with measurable ESG impact that help to deliver efficiency, safety and reduced resource consumption. In 2021, we achieved the goals we shared in our 2020 ESG report by integrating ESG into our new product introduction process with definitions and guidelines, developing baseline metrics and setting long-term targets for improvement. These actions will help us deliver more efficient and sustainable solutions and continue our legacy of providing solutions that enhance end-user safety. We have established a foundation that makes focusing on ESG a key part of our product development process.

In 2022 and beyond, we will continue to operationalize our strategy and progress towards our long-term goals of increasing the percentage of new products that have a positive impact in our three Products ESG focus categories (Eco-Friendly Materials, Eco-Friendly Designs and End-User Safety) and increasing the digital accessibility of product environmental data.

Eco-Friendly Materials

We strive to select and use materials that are made with bio-degradable, recyclable or reusable content and contain fewer restricted chemicals and scarce raw materials where possible.

These efforts include:

  • Using recyclable packaging
  • Producing products that are low smoke and halogen free
  • Selecting materials that have a longer lifespan to extend product life
  • Designing solutions that require fewer materials to service

Eco-Friendly Designs

We pursue eco-friendly product designs with lower environmental impact by emphasizing product lifespan and serviceability, improving energy efficiency and reducing the demand for more materials.

These efforts include:

  • Improving product and customer end use energy efficiency
  • Extending serviceable product life to reduce the need for new materials
  • Reducing carbon footprint and increasing efficiency through remote access technology
  • Reducing landfill disposal through reuse
  • Utilizing minimal and recyclable packaging 

End-User Safety

We develop easy to use products that improve end-user safety and experience and help our customers improve the safety of their operations by facilitating uptime and resilience for critical systems.

These efforts include:

  • Allowing for tool-less or reduced tool installation
  • Promoting easier handling and transportation
  • Enabling lower risk installation methods such as eliminating ladders and lifts
  • Helping keep critical infrastructure operational during emergencies
