Environment

Discipline and focus guide our efforts to continuously improve our environment, health and safety (EH&S) performance. Since 1996, we have improved our health and safety performance as measured by both total recordable incident rate and lost workday incident rate by 88 percent and 86 percent, respectively.

As our EH&S goals evolved from compliance and conservation to elimination of impacts from our value chain and products, so too has our understanding of how and where we can influence sustainability efforts across the globe.

One Drop Partnership: Project India

One Drop Logo

Through a partnership with One Drop, a nongovernmental organization, we are supporting a three-year project in Orissa, India, to bring safe drinking water to 100 villages. Milton Roy, a division of Hamilton Sundstrand, is leveraging employee expertise and its innovative line of water, wastewater treatment and chemical metering pumps to improve living conditions in an area where nearly 40 percent of the population does not have access to safe drinking water.

A Water Tool for Sustainability

From 2006 to 2011, we reduced our water consumption by 26 percent. We have set a 2015 sustainability goal of reducing our water consumption by 40 percent. To help us continue to meet and exceed our goals, we are applying the World Business Council for Sustainable Development's Global Water Tool to our operations. The tool helps us assess water-related risks, improve decision making and shape water-management plans.
