Progress Toward 2020 Targets

A third party assures our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data every year. We also performed an internal audit of the product GHG collection process in early 2017.

Specific management approach for emissions

See Energy for information about our renewable energy approach. Ingersoll Rand has no existing plans to purchase offsets to reduce our emissions.

GRI 305: Emissions

305-1 Direct (Scope 1) GHG emissions
