Environmental and Safety Goals

Honeywell is dedicated to protecting the environment with a comprehensive and contemporary commitment to address some of the world’s toughest challenges. This is one of the central tenets of how Honeywell does business throughout the world.

Greenhouse Gas and Energy Efficiency

Honeywell exceeded its first public goal to reduce global greenhouse gases by more than 30 percent and improve energy efficiency by more than 20 percent between 2004 and 2011.

A second five-year goal, set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an additional 15 percent per dollar of revenue from 2011 levels, was met three years early.

In March 2015, we announced a third public goal; by 2019 Honeywell will reduce our global greenhouse gas emissions by an additional 10 percent per dollar of revenue from our 2013 levels.

Since 2010, our facilities have implemented more than 3,700 efficiency projects including building automation/controls, lighting, and mechanical upgrades.


Honeywell maintains a global inventory of our water usage and continually looks for conservation opportunities while strategically targeting water conservation projects in areas that are experiencing “water stress” as defined by the World Resources Institute.


Honeywell will maintain our company-wide global Total Case Incident Rate (the number of occupational injuries and illnesses per 100 employees) at less than half of the combined U.S. averages of the businesses in which we operate.
