For Those Who Make The World Cleaner

As a responsible and human-centered industrial company, we continue to identify ways to reduce the environmental impact of our operations.

Sustainable
Lighting

Around the globe and across our businesses, over 30 of our facilities worked to replace lighting with energy efficient LEDs that also provide a consistently brighter work environment, resulting in improved employee safety and productivity.

less energy

In 2016, our Power Tools group installed LED lighting in seven facilities around the world, with an aggregate annual savings of 3.25 million kWh. Our Access Technologies facility in Farmington, Connecticut, replaced nearly a thousand fluorescent lights with energy efficient LED lights. This project is expected to reduce energy use by almost 400,000 kWh per year. A similar project at our Hand Tools plant in New Britain, Connecticut, has a projected annual energy savings of over one million kWh.

Leading
Recognition

Our ongoing ECOSMART™ efforts have gained recognition from key monitors of corporate performance.

CDP, an international nonprofit organization that supports sustainable economies, identified Stanley Black & Decker as a global leader in climate disclosure practices for the fourth consecutive year. CDP also named us to their Climate A List for our actions and strategies in response to climate change.

For the sixth consecutive year, we were named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America. This list is recognized as a benchmark for investors in several categories including Climate Strategy, Corporate Citizenship and Philanthropy, Human Capital Development, and more.

This recognition by the CDP and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index over multiple years reflects our readiness to meet future regulatory challenges and adapt to changing market demands—and the growing strength of our ECOSMART™ culture of continuous improvement.

Investing in
the Future

We continue to replace outdated, inefficient equipment with modern machinery that helps save energy and reduce waste. For example, our GQ Tools plant in Qidong, China, replaced its injection molding machine with a more energy efficient model, eliminating over 10,000 kilograms of material scrap and 31,000 kW of electricity from the manufacturing process annually, while significantly reducing manufacturing lead time. Installation of a Modified Alcohol Washer at our Engineered Fastening plant in Danbury, Connecticut, eliminated all use of water, soap and treatment chemicals in the process.

Solar Power Initiatives
in 2016

STANLEY Engineered Fastening’s Infastech manufacturing facility in India improved its energy independence using solar panel technology to generate 21,900 kW of electric power annually, approximately half of the plant’s total power requirements. At its Marietta, Georgia, plant, a roof-mounted 120 kW solar power system will result in a ten-year reduction of 2.1 million pounds of carbon emissions and 6.3 million pounds over the life expectancy of the system.

Our Tools & Storage Puebla, Mexico, manufacturing facility installed a solar thermal system for their hot water use that can supply up to 54 simultaneous showers, reducing gas consumption for hot water by 84% and CO2 emissions by 10.9 tons annually. The plant also installed a Photovoltaic System to supply energy for lighting the administrative offices, which will reduce CO2 emissions by 9.2 tons.

Our Besco, Taiwan, Power Tools plant installed a solar power system that will result in a 12% reduction in annual electricity expenditure. As an additional benefit, the solar panels, working as shields, can bring down the temperature in the production area by 4–6°F.
