More than 1,000 employees volunteered 800+ hours across the globe to Help Make Life Better for Mother Earth. Each year Earth Day begs us to take a pause and focus on our planet. This annual, global event on April 22, inspires people all over the world – 1 billion to be exact – to get involved in protecting the environment.
As a global business, Ingersoll Rand has the power to affect change around the world and being mindful about our influence is important. Which is why, in addition to our larger Environmental Goals, we believe in participating in daily actions that will help make life better for generations to come.
Led by our Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) leaders, we launched a company-wide campaign around the 2021 Earth Day theme: Restore our Earth. “Our Earth Day Team wanted to offer ideas to our sites that were meaningful, easy to implement and tied to our environmental goals,” said Mary Betsch, global EHS director and member of the Earth Day Planning Team.”
Here are just some of our employees’ impressive accomplishments:
We believe demonstrating respect and care for our Earth goes hand-in-hand with building a successful business. Through these environmental actions, our teams across the globe showed that Ingersoll Rand can positively impact the planet. And, although the sun has set on April 22, we must remember that there is still so much to be done and it is our job – as a company and as individuals – to keep that momentum going.
