Sturtevant-based JohnsonDiversey has committed to decreasing its greenhouse gas emissions threefold by 2013, in accordance with the World Wildlife Fund’s Climate Savers Program.
When it joined the program in 2008, JohnsonDiversey pledged an 8 percent reduction – the company now believes it will be able to emit 25 percent less greenhouse gases by 2013.
“Our commitment to further reduce our (greenhouse gas) emissions and go beyond the initial pledge we made when becoming a Climate Savers member demonstrates our company’s passion for providing a cleaner, healthier future for the world,” said S. Curtis Johnson, chairman of JohnsonDiversey.
The Sturtevant developer of cleaning and hygiene products is one of 22 companies in the WWF’s Climate Savers program. In March, the companies announced an estimated 50 million tons of voluntary emissions reductions after working together for about 10 years.
