We strive to implement responsible business practices and to eliminate harmful environmental impacts from our own operations by minimizing emissions, waste and water usage. This approach results in cost efficiencies for both our customers and our business, while also supporting the health of our communities and planet.
Badger Meter has adopted its first ever Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reduction goal, an important step on our ESG journey as we work to mitigate the impact we have on the environment and be good stewards of the resources we use in our operations. This goal was developed through a strategic initiative to capture baseline GHG data globally, and identify opportunities to reduce energy consumption and other Level 1 and 2 emissions. Our 2020 baseline GHG emissions (in metric tons CO2e) of 12,117 represents a GHG emissions intensity of 28.5.
It is our goal to reduce wastes and emissions, minimize adverse environmental impacts, and promote resource conservation at all of our production and sales operations worldwide. Badger Meter, with the cooperation of its employees, customers, contractors and suppliers, is committed to environmental management.
Not only do our products enable more sustainable use of natural resources, the way we build products helps conserve resources. Every year Badger Meter uses recycled material to make our bronze metering products. Approximately 98.5% of the bronze housings used in production are made from recycled material. The primary smelter that recycles this source material run their operations with zero emissions and zero water discharge, contributing to the circular economy.
Through a combination of efforts including HVAC upgrades, LED lighting systems, power load monitoring and the installation of solar panels on the facility roof, we have reduced overall electricity usage by 32% since we began tracking in 1991. This results in both cost savings to the company and reduces our carbon footprint. We have also worked to “green” our cafeterias by eliminating single use plastic, and encourage electronic file management to reduce paper.
Using a regimented system of policies and procedures helps us maintain ISO 90001 certification for quality management, which in turn builds customer trust and confidence. Our software solutions adhere to strict quality and security standards. For example, BEACON Advanced Metering Analytics and AquaCUE Flow Measurement Manager software solutions, along with EyeOnWater customer engagement software, comply with Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) and reporting framework ISO 270001 for data security.
