Sustainable Energy

We manage energy use to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint and drive down costs through continuous improvement projects. Starting in 2011, Bard entered into an agreement with a specialist contractor to assess each of our large facilities and recommend site-specific energy-savings projects. The energy assessments reviewed our manufacturing operations and identified potential changes to various systems including heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC); manufacturing process controls; and lighting.

As a result of these assessments, 11 Bard facilities, representing over 60 percent of our global facility footprint by square footage, have implemented energy management projects. Collectively these projects have yielded a calculated avoidance of 31.2 million kilowatt hours, which is a 17 percent reduction in annualized electrical energy demand at these 11 sites compared to their baseline consumption.
