Tennant announces sustainability goals

Tennant Company reveals new strategic framework, including net-zero greenhouse gas emissions goals.

Tennant Co. has announced plans to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across Scopes 1, 2, and 3 by 2040.

In order to do so, the company has submitted a letter of commitment outlining its goals to the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for validation.

Tennant plans to supply 100 per cent of its electricity from renewable sources across all its global facilities by 2030 and electrify 100 per cent of the company’s fleet by 2040.

In addition, Tennant will partner with its customers to increase the energy efficiency of its portfolio and collaborate with external groups to drive innovation and sustainable technology development.

“As a market leader with a reputation for innovation, I’m confident that we can work toward ambitious commitments to affect change on a global scale,” said Dave Huml, Tenant president and CEO.

“By embedding sustainable thinking into how we work, we’ll continue to deliver solutions that help our customers solve their biggest challenges and meet their sustainability targets. Working within our own business and with our stakeholders, we will help people thrive and contribute to a healthier planet.”

With the goal of reaching net-zero by 2040, Tennant also announced a new sustainability framework aligned with the most significant issues to the company and its stakeholders.

Carol McKnight, SVP and Chief Administrative Officer, said the new framework rests on the foundational interconnection between people and planet, providing the lens for the company to set goals, align plans, and integrate sustainability across our business.

“This charts the path for our next 150 years, grounded in the belief that our sustainable cleaning solutions will help reinvent how the world cleans, creating shared value for business and society,” said

The new sustainability framework is organised into two pillars—Thriving People and Healthy Planet.

Each pillar targets key impact areas where the company intends to drive progress. These impact areas include employee success, social impact, shared spaces, climate and energy, water and chemical use, and circular products and waste.
