OSRAM SYLVANIA reduces emissions by 20% in five years, doubling its 2007 pledge

DANVERS, Mass. – OSRAM SYLVANIA announced today that it has reduced its corporate absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 20% over the past five years—doubling the commitment it made in 2007 when the company joined the EPA Climate Leaders Partnership.

As a part of its continued commitment to sustainable practices, OSRAM SYLVANIA pledged to reduce its corporate-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 10% between 2006 and 2011—just one of many social and environmental goals set by the company through its Global Care program. The 20% reduction was accomplished through a range of activities focusing on Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions including:

  • Speed management and no-idling policies for service vehicles
  • SmartWay certified vehicles required for the national sales fleet
  • SYLVANIA Lighting Services fleet upgrades and retirement of older vehicles
  • Lighting upgrades at manufacturing facilities and distribution centers
  • An energy-efficient furnace rebuild at OSRAM SYLVANIA's Versailles, KY facility
  • Baseline energy improvements at all facilities.
