Helios Technologies, a provider of motion control and electronic controls technology, recently announced a long-term commitment to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 for its operated assets.
“We take our societal responsibility seriously,” Josef Matosevic, Helios Technologies president and CEO, said in a press release. “This newest commitment adds to our earlier recognition that Helios Technologies’ environmental, social, and governance responsibilities are the living, operating principles by which we measure ourselves and shape our behavior on a daily basis. Initial efforts and steps are underway as we develop more detailed plans to reach this long-term commitment. At the board level, we established an ESG committee as a component of our governance structure to assist the company in its oversight of corporate social responsibilities, significant public policy issues, health and safety, and climate-change related trends and other global ESG matters. We believe this is an important step forward in building a more sustainable company that can create long-term value for all stakeholders.”
According to the press release, Helios has completed its first scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas inventory and is working on detailed emission-reduction roadmaps for its major operated assets.
