Worthington Industries has said it will now focus on products and services that support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, such as gas containment systems for the growing hydrogen economy, as part of an increased focus on sustainability.

The Ohio-based firm on Wednesday (23rd March) confirmed is focus as it announced new greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets that are aligned with the 1.5°C science-based target as it targets carbon neutrality by 2050.

Further supporting this, Worthington is also currently in the process of conducting an environmental, social and governance (ESG) materiality assessment to help make the business more sustainable.

Andy Rose, President and CEO of Worthington Industries, said, “Worthington’s pledge to set emissions reduction targets aligned with a 1.5°C science-based target clearly demonstrates our commitment to sustainability.”

“With Scope 3 emissions as our greatest environmental impact, we understand that it will take all of us working together to achieve our goals and enable a sustainable future for all.”

“Worthington today has many products and solutions that enable emissions reductions, and we intend to increase our focus on these products to capitalise on the growth opportunity in those businesses.”
