Scope 3 – GHG, emissions from assets not owned or controlled by IR, but which IR indirectly impacts (i.e., emissions from our products). Emission impacts are measured in MT CO2e (metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) The above goals were chosen using a series of intentional activities, including sustainability materiality assessments, focused on identifying the topics and areas that had not just the most impact on the Ingersoll Rand's core business, but also on the company's stakeholders. Employees participated in these assessments, alongside customers, supply chain partners, and investors. The results were then analyzed and shared in the company's first Sustainability Report, which covered a range of topics related to sustainability, notably: Employees, Energy Use and Product Stewardship/New Product Development and Innovation. Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and ownership mindset, Ingersoll Rand encourages all employees to actively participate and engage in lowering environmental impacts, conservation education, projects and community outreach is what helps the company make life better at work, in communities and in the lives and work of customers as they use Ingersoll Rand products.
