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.

Our approach to sustainability continues to evolve as we bring into scope more and more elements related to our operations, processes and products.

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 CO2e emissions and water consumption.

We are committed to a sustainable future

We are proud of the contribution Morgan is making and the contribution of our people to creating a more sustainable world.

Our aspiration Our 2030 goals
  • A CO2e net zero business by 20501
  • Use water sustainably across our business
  • Improve efficiency of our processes at all manufacturing sites to reduce waste
  • 50% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 CO2e emissions
  • 30% reduction in water use in high and extremely high stress areas2
  • 30% reduction in total water usage2

Our progress in 2021

In 2021, we focused on driving our sustainability agenda further into our organisation. We understand that engaging and inspiring our people to create local initiatives will better enable us to reach our goals. Our people found ways to:

  • Reduce their environmental impact;
  • Support their local communities;
  • Support the wellbeing of their colleagues.

Our sustainability performance, compared with 2020, has been impacted due to business growth and ramp up after the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • CO2e intensity 20% decrease;
  • Absolute CO2e 17% decrease; 
  • Total energy use 7% increase; 
  • Water use 15% increase; 
  • Water use in stressed areas 9% increase; 
  • Waste intensity 7% increase; 
  • Waste recycling 3% increase.

Scope Three

Our approach to sustainability continues to evolve as we encompass more and more elements related to our operations, processes and products. We recognise that assessment of our value-chain emissions is an important part of our long-term sustainability strategy. We aim to work with our key stakeholders and top tier suppliers to reduce indirect emissions and this is our preliminary step towards minimising product lifecycle impact. 

We will start to measure scope 3 emissions from 2023 onwards, with coverage increasing over time. Further details are available in the energy section of our website.
