Baltimore Aircoil Company Publishes its First Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report
Baltimore Aircoil Company (BAC), a market leader in cooling solutions for the commercial, manufacturing, and industrial sectors, has published its 2021 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report.
The ESG Report focuses on the major initiatives, achievements, and targets required to realise BAC's mission of reinventing cooling to sustain the world.
“We are very proud to publish our inaugural ESG Report, where we, as the global leader in evaporative cooling, the most sustainable cooling technology in the market, must innovate and lead the industry towards a more sustainable future,” said Don Fetzer, President of BAC. “Our ESG Report is one building block to our mission of advancing truly sustainable cooling—inspired by nature and powered by our people.”
As the world faces more problems, customers, suppliers, employees, and other stakeholders are looking for companies that do things in a way that is good for the environment. To meet these needs, BAC has set up five areas of focus for its efforts related to sustainability:
Develop and offer sustainable products
Design and operate our facilities to minimise environmental impact
Partner with suppliers to cultivate a sustainable supply chain
Elevate diversity, equity, inclusivity, and safety in our work environment to enable our employees to grow and make a positive impact on communities
Be the recognised leading provider of sustainable heat transfer solutions
BAC is completely transparent about its current efforts and has set goals for the future. In 2015, it started measuring how its facilities affect the environment. The company has also set goals for 2030.
"In 2021, renewable electricity represented 21% of our total electricity consumption, and we expect to increase our renewable electricity usage to more than 50% in 2022. Decarbonising our electricity supply step by step is one of the initiatives we take to achieve our target of reducing absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 50% by 2030. This is just one of our many goals to improve our future environmental impact," said Tim Vrints, BAC’s Global Sustainability Leader.
BAC's dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion is also highlighted in this ESG Report. BAC is adapting to better reflect the diversity of its communities, personnel, and customers. It has broadened its leadership team's diversity, introduced new resources for employee education on critical diversity and inclusion subjects, and integrated social responsibility activities into employees' everyday experiences.
