Armstrong Fluid Technology commits to net zero carbon operating emissions
Armstrong Fluid Technology has pledged to zero carbon emissions by signing the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment, launched by the World Green Building Council.
The commitment positions energy efficiency as a key component to achieving decarbonisation across global portfolios.
Those who sign up to the commitment pledge to reach net zero carbon operating emissions within their portfolios by 2030.
In order to meet the commitment, Armstrong will carry out three main actions to incorporate energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions.
These include: implementation of energy efficiency measures to lower electricity and fossil fuel consumption; generation of renewable energy on-site; and procurement of renewable generated electricity and carbon offsets.
“For the past 20 years we have been perfecting the efficiency of our portfolio and dismantling the economic barriers around efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions,” commented chairman and CEO Charles Armstrong.
“Improving performance does not have to involve paying a premium price. Reaching Net Zero and assisting our customers in meeting their own sustainability objectives is our primary work. The synergy between this Net Zero commitment and our own 2 by 22 initiative to reduce GHG emissions by 2 million tons by the year 2022 made it an easy decision to become one of the more than 50 distinguished signatories allied to combatting the climate crisis.”
