Work for Eaton and help improve the quality of life and environment

 August 07, 2020

Many, if not most things today require power  - communicating, feeding families, heating and cooling indoor environments, managing health, travelling for work or recreation and providing goods and services to others. So Eaton's vision is to improve the quality of life and the environment through the use of power management technologies and services. 

Making a sustainable difference

Eaton believes it has the power to make a difference throughout the world so it is stepping up its commitment to improve the quality of life and the environment.

The company is powered by a vision, driven by strategy, guided by aspirational goals, and committed to doing business right. 

By 2050, Eaton's goal is that 60% of its solutions will have a positive impact on the planet - responsibly sourced and easier to recycle, repair or remanufacture.

Eaton's targets include reducing the carbon emissions from their operations by half, lowering product and supply chain emissions, certifying all manufacturing sites as zero waste to landfill, and achieving carbon neutral operations by 2030.

Eaton has also set targets to further enhance employee safety, development and engagement, and to provide more transparency into the progress the company is making towards achieving their sustainability goals.

Working to improve the quality of life and the environment

Eaton Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Craig Arnold, says "At Eaton, sustainability is at the core of our mission – to improve the quality of life and the environment. It’s also aligned with the Business Roundtable’s commitment to address climate change through a collection of actions that will lead to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions on a global basis. We believe that meaningful efforts to support the environment are fundamental to creating value and we are now prepared to significantly expand our sustainability commitments ... At Eaton, the work we do to improve people’s lives and the environment has never been more relevant, or more critical to our stakeholders and our global community. We look forward to making what matters work, safely and sustainably, for many decades to come."
