Commitment to the Net-Zero Standard

Deceuninck’s commitment to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions is ambitious, science-based, and global.

Deceuninck North America, along with its global entity, the Deceuninck Group, has set ambitious goals to significantly reduce its greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), with its ultimate goal of achieving the Net-Zero Standard by 2050. 

Globally, Deceuninck commits to reducing CO2 emissions 60% by 2030. Factoring in the anticipated growth, this equates to a CO2 reduction of up to 75% for each ton of material produced. 

Deceuninck North America will reduce emissions by using green electricity, maximizing on-site renewable electricity production, sourcing renewable energy certificates, and shifting toward purchase power agreements.

“We take pride in leading by example and taking the necessary steps to reduce our carbon footprint and combat climate change. In collaboration with our partners and customers, we are confident that we will reach these ambitious sustainability goals.” 

Deceuninck will also focus on process improvements such as phasing out the use of fuel oil, increasing measurement and monitoring, avoiding compressed air leakages, and relighting, reinsulating, and replacing machinery in its facilities. 

Plus, Deceuninck will reduce indirect emissions by working with key suppliers to source lower carbon-intensive PVC resin, increasing recycling activities, incorporating more recycled content into its products, and reducing reliance on virgin raw materials.
