Our 2025 Commitment to Responsible Processes
|By 2025, Rheem® will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% and achieve zero waste to landfill in its global manufacturing operations.|
Consume Less Energy
Making millions of pieces of heating, cooling and water heating equipment requires a lot of energy, but we’re always seeking ways to use less—from lighting improvements to more efficient forklifts—so we can build more responsibly.
Throughout the production of our equipment, water is a critical component, but we’re constantly making improvements to use less, waste none and ensure nothing that shouldn’t be in streams and rivers ends up there.
From our factory floors to our corporate offices, we’re constantly scanning for waste—both in processes and production—so we can find ways to avoid it or use it for something else.
Moving equipment from our factories to our distributors and retail partners is an inherently not-green yet necessary part of the process—but we’re working with the EPA’s SmartWay® program to identify ways to make distribution more sustainable.
Our Fort Smith, AR, plant is a modern marvel of sustainable operations. And we’ve recently made improvements that have made it even more efficient.
When it comes to sustainability, we are inspired by others. Here are a few companies whose sustainability efforts we admire.
More than just a manufacturer of beautiful fixtures, Kohler® is committed to keeping the planet beautiful as well.
