Reducing Emissions by Striving to Be the Best

To better understand our impact on the planet and to increase the transparency of our operations, we have voluntarily tracked and reported our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions since 2009. In 2017, we improved our CO2e intensity ratios for the sixth consecutive year. While overall CO2e emissions may continue to go up as the Company grows, we will continually look for opportunities to reduce our emissions intensity.
