Our Planet vision: Responsible energy, waste and water management to help protect our natural resources
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 protect natural resources and provide value to our customers and the communities where we live and work.
From setting strategic business goals to our Grass Roots Employee Resource Group focused on sustainability, working to improve our environmental impact is a priority at all levels of our organization. Employee-led “environmental treasure hunts” occur globally across our facilities to identify and implement improvement ideas. We are committed to responsible energy use, greenhouse gas reduction and waste and water management.
Reducing our carbon emissions and using more green energy are important steps we are taking to reduce our impact on natural resources. In 2020, we negotiated our first green energy contract in the United States at our Houston, Texas facility. This site adds to our portfolio of renewable energy contracts already in place at our locations in Belgium, France and Germany.
In 2021, our Anoka, Minnesota, United States site entered into a green energy contract that will add 30,000,000 kilowatt hours of renewable energy to our portfolio. This contract is expected to increase total company renewable energy by 10%.
