People, planet profit from team at Monterrey plant
For the team at Sealed Air’s manufacturing plant in Monterrey, Mexico, sustainability and social responsibility go hand in hand. Their zero waste program provides a case in point.
In 2016, our employees at the plant launched campaigns to recycle batteries, PET plastic and paper, determined to send zero waste to landfills. They also implemented measures to reduce earplug consumption. But that’s not all.
The first of the three pillars supporting Sealed Air’s 2020 Sustainability Goals establishes our commitment to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. We have defined that commitment in terms of four key metrics: energy intensity, greenhouse gas intensity, water intensity and landfill waste.

I proudly joined NRG exactly one year ago as the new head of sustainability, knowing I was joining the power sector at a time of rapid transformation. It’s an exciting time of technology and business model innovation, but it’s also a time of uncertainty. The surest thing we know about the future of power is that it won’t look like the past.
NRG closely monitors its environmental impacts. We emit CO2 when generating electricity at most of our facilities. The graphs presented below illustrate our U.S. scope 1 emissions of CO2e for 2014, 2015 and 2016. We anticipate reductions in our future emissions profile as we modernize our fleet through repowering, improve generation efficiencies and explore methods to capture CO2.

In the past few years, global efforts such as the Paris Agreement and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have demonstrated the tremendous progress that can be achieved through collective action.
The unprecedented focus from both the public and private sector on the health of our planet has signaled that efforts to limit environmental impacts can no longer be considered “above and beyond” the normal scope of a company’s operations, but rather serve as investments for our global community’s overall health and future growth in a responsible manner.

Across the globe, about 50 percent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are tied to materials. The United Nations, for example, estimates that in 41.8 million tonnes (Mt) of electronic waste there is 16 Mt of iron, 1.9 Mt of copper and 300 tonnes of gold, plus other precious metals such as palladium, with a combined value of $52 billion. Therefore, the transition to a circular economy not only contributes to climate action, but can have significant economic benefits as well.
