Environment

At Morgan we are committed to a sustainable future. Our aim is to ensure that our products and manufacturing processes are designed, built and managed in a way that enhances their value to society and our environment.

With our purpose at the heart of what we do, we are dedicated to helping our customers manage and reduce heat, enabling green energy
generation and electrification for cleaner public transport, and reducing CO2 emissions.

Our products are benefiting the environment by making the operations of our customers significantly more energy efficient, and over the last five years we have made steady reductions to our own CO2 emissions and water consumption.

Our progress in 2020

Our approach to sustainability continues to evolve as we encompass more and more elements related to our operations, processes and products. The Group achieved improvements (as compared to 2019) in the following environmental metrics:

  • CO2 intensity improved by 4% and absolute CO2 reduced by 15%
  • Total energy use reduced by 12%, with a 1% reduction in overall energy intensity
  • Water use intensity improved by 8%, while total water withdrawal was reduced by 20%
  • Waste intensity improved by 17%, while total waste generation improved by 27%.

Net Zero by 2050

In support of global efforts to reduce climate change, we have made the commitment to reduce our CO2 emissions to net zero by 2050. As a relatively energy-intensive business this presents a huge challenge for us, but we are committed to improving our environmental impact.

We are committed to a sustainable future
