“At MTI, we are passionate about providing the safest workplace for our employees and reducing our environmental footprint across our operations. We are creating innovative technologies and solutions tailored to our customers’ evolving demands, preserving natural resources and making positive contributions to the communities in which we operate,” said
Mr. Dietrich continued, “As we've progressed along our sustainability journey, which is guided by our culture of continuous improvement, we recognized the importance of providing more transparency into our initiatives and setting goals to elevate our performance. Following a comprehensive assessment of the sustainability elements most important to our business and stakeholders, we have established specific targets that will further reduce our environmental impact over the coming years."
The environmental goals are outlined in this year’s report and target reductions in six focus areas by 2025:
- Greenhouse gas emissions
- Indirect greenhouse gas emissions (purchased electricity)
- Water consumption
- Wastewater discharge
- Landfill waste
- Airborne pollutants (CO, NO2, SO2 and VOCs)
The report references the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards as a guide for identifying, measuring and reporting MTI’s non-financial impacts. The full report can be accessed at MTI’s 2018 Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Report.
