environmental performance

Ashland is proud to share that in 2020, we achieved two of our three environmental 2020 goals. GHG emissions intensity was reduced by 12% over 2013 baseline. Hazardous waste generation intensity was nearly double our goal at 17% reduction over 2013 baseline. Unfortunately, due to changes in product mix to more energy intensive products and lower overall production in 2020, Ashland failed to achieve our 10% reduction in energy intensity. However, as we look toward 2030, we are committed to increased focus on reducing our environmental footprint including a commitment to Science Based Targets and the Business Ambition Pledge for 1.5°C. This will be achieved through increased efforts in energy reduction and renewable energy procurement; as well as the use of Renewable Energy Credits as needed. Fiscal year 2020 will serve as the baseline for these goals moving forward.
