Eaton employees are environmentally-conscious 

This outstanding recognition is thanks to Eaton's engaged and motivated workforce who helps carry out Eaton's sustainability aims, such as Clare Castleman, Sustainability Analyst at Eaton. 

She became the first person to oversee sustainability initiatives for Eaton and now each day Claire enjoys integrating world-changing sustainability into her work. 

"I want to redesign the way business thinks about value and using the societal and environmental values that an organization is providing metrics for success," explains Clare.

Claire was named as a STEP Ahead emerging young leader for Women in Manufacturing following her work as a strategic partner and technical lead on many elements of Eaton’s Corporate Sustainability programmes. As a testament to her work, Claire has helped the company reach aggressive environmental goals such as waste to landfill reduction

“Global manufacturing has a huge environmental and social footprint. I'm passionate about harnessing the enormous opportunity of the industry as a whole to move toward sustainable development. Manufacturers' capabilities to use advanced technology and drive toward a shared purpose can create a healthier, more just and sustainable world," says Claire.
