Progress against 2020 Goals

Dover Intensity Goals Performance

Dover's baseline will be adjusted based on acquisitions and divestitures which may impact overall performance

  • 21% reduction in 2015 from 2010 GHG intensity baseline
  • 16% reduction in 2015 from 2010 energy intensity baseline
  • Exceeded goal of 20% by 2020 ahead of schedule
  • Carbon and energy intensity is the total GHG footprint or MWh over total revenue, which accounts for business growth
  • Of 5% absolute reduction – 40% attributed to reduced carbon-intensity of electrical grid in the United States and 60% attributed to energy efficiency and GHG reduction projects, including use of a new formulation of blowing agent that reduced refrigerant losses to the environment
  • Dover will continue to work proactively to maintain this goal to decouple business growth and carbon emissions amidst acquisitions and business growth
  • Dover’s baseline will be adjusted based on acquisitions and divestitures which may impact overall performance
  • Approximately 7,701 metric tonnes CO2eq of reductions in 2015 due to sustainability projects – equivalent to the emissions of over 1,628 cars a year



Dover’s GHG footprint is comprised of energy use, fleet vehicles fuel use and use of refrigerants in processes and HVAC systems and is converted to metric tonnes of Carbon Dioxide equivalent (mt CO2e)

Energy Efficiency Captains Speak out

“I am very excited to be part of a company (Dover) that sees the relationship between long term success and sustainability. Taking responsibility in shifting behaviour, incorporating principles of sustainability into each of our business decisions and making an enduring commitment to environment principles in all of our business operations will trigger the type of change necessary to achieve sustainability for our company and our planet.”

“For the cold Northeast Winters of the United States, at Markem-Imaje in New Hampshire we converted the heating system for the factory to new dual fuel system including natural gas boilers. This provides a more efficient heating system, consumes less energy, generates less carbon and gas emissions, offers a solid ROI and provides for business continuity of a dual fuel solution should fuel delivery be an issue.”

Global Environment Manager
Markem-Imaje Corporation

“Environmental sustainability has become a top priority at our company and is now ingrained in the continuous improvement culture that we strive to foster. Eliminating waste not only has a positive impact on the environment, it also provides our employees with the satisfaction of knowing that their actions are contributing to a more sustainable future.”
