Energy and Emissions

It is our goal to become carbon neutral by 2030 for scope 1 and 2 emissions, with 100% of our electricity coming from renewable sources. Currently, our renewable electricity usage is 24% through a combination of grid and on-site sources. We have solar panels installed and are identifying opportunities to reduce our scope 1 emissions by replacing fossil fueled equipment with electric alternatives and our scope 2 emissions by using renewable energy resources.

Our scope 1 emissions are those that we produce on site through fuel combustion and refrigerant usage. Scope 2 emissions are those that we indirectly produce through the direct purchase of electricity and power. Scope 3 emissions encompass a broader scope of indirect sources, such as associate commuting, business travel, waste disposal and others. Currently, we are focused on reporting our scope 1 and 2 emissions and anticipate incorporating scope 3 in future reports.

In 2020, our total energy usage was 977,731 gigajoules (GJ). Our total scope 1 and 2 emissions were 103,992 metric tons CO2e. Total emissions increased this year primarily due to the opening and startup of a new facility in Chennai, India; however, we reduced our emissions intensity by approximately 7% year over year due to manufacturing more and longer wind blade
