Our Commitment to Climate Action
Wabtec recognizes the urgent need to lower the impacts of climate change to preserve a sustainable future for generations to come. We have aligned our operational framework with the Paris Agreement and its science-based goal of limiting the Earth’s temperature increase to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius. It is our aim to ensure GHG emissions data and goals are meaningful, measurable, and verifiable, reflecting the carbon footprint of our true value chain. Climate action is a core component of our sustainability strategy, and we set targets to allow our stakeholders to measure our steady progress toward reducing the impacts of climate change.
Capturing Waste Energy
Wabtec’s site in Grove City, Pennsylvania, conducted lean workouts to identify projects that could eliminate energy waste at the plant. The team uncovered a tremendous opportunity to use the energy untapped from the diesel engine testing performed at the plant to power the site. The power generation can be redirected to address more than 40% of the Grove City site electrical usage, enough energy to power 1,000 average households in the U.S.
