2018 Sustainability Results


We focus on four key sustainability metrics: energy intensity, greenhouse gas emissions intensity, waste intensity, and water withdrawal intensity. Our sustainability metrics are intensity-based to show performance independent of business change. We normalize these metrics by metric tons of production to accommodate for changes in output.

H.B. Fuller Sustainability Goal one, reduce energy intensity by 20% between 2014-2025.H.B. Fuller sustainability goal two, reduce 1 and 2 greenhouse gas GHG emissions intensity by 20% between 2014-2025.H.B. Fuller sustainability goal three, reduce waste intensity by 10% between 2014-2025.H.B. Fuller sustainability goal number four, reduce water withdraw intensity by 10% between 2014-2025.

Since establishing our sustainability goals, H.B. Fuller has made acquisitions, as well as data collection and methodological changes, that have affected our reported energy, GHG, waste and water performance. In the context of our sustainability data management, these changes are considered significant as they impact each of our reported 2014 base year energy, GHG, waste and water metrics by more than two percent. For consistent tracking of these sustainability metrics over time, we have recalculated both our 2014 base year and subsequent reporting years for all sustainability metrics to include these changes. These revisions are common among companies with similar changes, are aligned with our internal Inventory Management Plan (which relies on the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard) and allow us to accurately characterize performance against our goals between 2014 and our 2025 target year.

Units of measure for the metrics on this page are as follows: energy intensity in kWh per metric ton of production, GHG intensity in kg CO 2e per metric ton of production, waste intensity in kg per metric ton of production and water withdrawal intensity in gallons per metric ton of production.
