Environmental Sustainability Overview

We are committed to being a responsible partner in the communities in which we operate. 'We are minimizing the environmental impact of our operations by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing renewable energy use, and reducing our waste and water usage. We regularly evaluate and assess our suppliers to ensure sustainability is a factor in their business processes.

Renewable Energy Projects

At Celestica, we are committed to increasing the use of renewable energy sources in our operations. We currently use 54% renewable energy as part of our total energy consumption, through the use of on-site solar panels, procurement through utilities, and purchases of Energy Attribute Certificates. Our Galway, Ireland and Valencia, Spain facilities derive 100% of their electricity from renewable energy. Together, these two sites prevented approximately 3,032 metric tonnes of CO2e from entering the atmosphere in 2019.

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Celestica is committed to reducing our absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30% of 2012 levels by 2020. This goal focuses on direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) emissions from our operations. Celestica set new GHG emissions reduction targets in alignment with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We commit to reduce absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions 30% by 2025 from a 2018 base year. Celestica also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from fuel and energy-related activities, purchased goods and services and upstream and downstream transportation and distribution 10% by 2025 from a 2018 base year.

Enabling Waste Reduction

We seek to continuously improve our waste reduction practices across all of our sites. In 2019, our offices and facilities worldwide diverted 92.7% of operational waste from landfill.  Our goal is to divert 100% by 2020. To challenge our employees to reduce waste, we conduct an annual Waste Reduction Week, inviting all sites to participate towards a common goal.

We recognize the scarcity of essential natural resources such as water. Although our operations are not water intensive, we are committed to reducing our consumption, particularly in “water stressed” regions. We strive to be responsible consumers of water through the improvement of our tracking and environmental management systems.

We imagine, develop and deliver a better future with our customers.
