Better Climate Challenge   Better Plants Challenge

In 2021, BorgWarner pledged to become carbon neutral for Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2035, with an interim goal of 85% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030. To help achieve their ambitious emissions goal, BorgWarner kicked off a company-wide project to analyze energy consumption at 20 locations across 13 countries. The project resulted in a decarbonization toolbox that can be leveraged by all company locations to pursue carbon neutrality strategically. The toolbox presents two key pathways for plants to decarbonize operations: 1) Reduce energy consumption, 2) Produce zero-emission energy. BorgWarner has also created internal targets aimed at an overall 3.5% YOY reduction in energy intensity. The company's enterprise-wide Conservation Coalition identifies and shares best practices for saving energy and resources across facilities. Efforts include energy efficiency and carbon reduction initiatives, such as installing solar panels, solar water heaters, solar tube lighting, rainwater collection systems, and achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. This program leverages the global insight available across company operations to disseminate proven practices and techniques.
