Scope I, II and III Emissions Targets
- Reduce absolute emissions directly from the company’s operations and indirect emissions from purchased energy (scopes I and II) by 50% by 2030.
- Reduce other indirect absolute emissions related to materials sourcing, logistics and services (scope III) by 15% by 2030, and 25% by 2040.
- Achieve carbon neutral operations (scopes I and II) by 2040.
“Parker has made great progress on our sustainability journey and we recognize the need to do even more,” said
The targets, featured in this year’s report, will be submitted for approval by the Science Based Targets initiative, which defines and promotes best practices in emissions reductions and carbon neutral targets in line with climate science. Parker’s long-term strategy includes actions to reduce its energy consumption, investments in renewable energy and working closely with suppliers to further reduce energy use and emissions.
Technologies Enabling a Sustainable Future
The 2020 Sustainability Report also highlights Parker’s interconnected portfolio of motion and control technologies, which features a broad range of highly efficient products and systems engineered to help customers reduce resource consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
Parker delivers technology solutions that enable the adoption of cleaner and more efficient energy, electrification, light-weighting and other innovations with a positive, global environmental impact to hundreds of thousands of companies across the industrial, mobile and aerospace markets, including:
- A comprehensive suite of engineered materials such as thermal management, coatings, adhesives and vibration control that enable more electric applications.
- A broad range of motion and control technologies to support the use of various clean energy sources such as batteries, fuel cells, hydrogen, sustainable fuels and renewable energy.
- Strongest motion technology offering with electro-hydraulic, electro-mechanical, and pneumatic actuators, valves, pumps, motors, controllers, software and conveyance for more electric aerospace, mobile and industrial applications.
- Broad platform of filtration technologies to accelerate a cleaner and more sustainable world.
- Exciting bill-of-material expansion opportunities both for onboard OEM equipment as well as significant new infrastructure investment to support a cleaner technology world.
“With more than a century of experience, we are often called to the table for the collaborations that help to solve the most complex engineering challenges,” Williams added. “Breakthroughs that make the world cleaner, smarter and safer would not be possible without Parker technologies.”
