Environment: Waste

We continue our journey toward zero waste to landfill. Fifteen of our manufacturing sites reported achieving zero waste to landfill and, in 2017, we reduced our non-hazardous waste to landfill by 10% compared to 2016. Our 2017 recycling rate increased by 3% compared to 2016. For every pound of non-hazardous waste sent to landfill, nearly four pounds are recycled.

In addition to the third-party verification of the 2017 sustainability data, Ingersoll Rand completed a review of the FY2014 through FY2016 data. Minor adjustment opportunities were identified and the adjustments have been incorporated, resulting in slight differences in the previously reported values for hazardous waste disposed.
