Sherwin-Williams to Reduce Emissions

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Comment | More

The Sherwin-Williams Company has pledged to reduce its total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 4 percent as a partner in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Leaders program.

The reduction spans the period from 2007, when Sherwin-Williams joined the EPA program, to 2012.

Climate Leaders is an industry-government partnership that works with companies to develop comprehensive climate change strategies. Partner companies commit to reducing their impact on the global environment by completing a corporate-wide inventory of their greenhouse gas emissions based on a quality management system, setting aggressive reduction goals, and annually reporting their progress to EPA. Through program participation, companies create a credible record of their accomplishments and receive EPA recognition as corporate environmental leaders.

"By setting a greenhouse gas reduction goal, we are complementing our overall sustainability strategy of managing natural resources efficiently and responsibly.  We believe that being stewards of the environment is consistent with the values of all our stakeholders and take the responsibility seriously," said John Gerulis, Sherwin-Williams Vice President of Environmental, Health & Regulatory Affairs.

The Sherwin-Williams voluntary greenhouse gas reduction pledge is part of Sherwin-Williams’ overall ECOVISION program to develop sustainable processes, products and activities that are profitable, preserve natural resources and contribute to social improvement.  The company is also active in EPA's Smartway and the Department of Energy's Save Energy Now programs.

Sherwin-Williams is the top paint and coatings company in the United States. Its brands include Dutch Boy, Krylon, Minwax and Thompson's Water Seal.
