Our Responsibility

We believe we have a responsibility to change the world for the better. This means solving big global challenges, making modern life possible in ways that do good for the planet and creating opportunities in the communities in which we live and work.
Our talented employees engineer and develop products and services that create smart, sustainable solutions for a rapidly urbanizing world. We improve the quality of life for people around the world while limiting our environmental impact. Over the past 21 years, our factories have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than 1 million metric tons and reduced our water use by 3 billion gallons, and brought innovative thinking to the prevention of workplace injuries — all during a period of unparalleled growth in our business. Our investments in civic, cultural, economic and social welfare organizations enhance our community wellbeing. And, through global volunteerism, we mentor young people and nurture the next generation of inventors, scientists, business professionals. We are committed to doing big things in good ways.
