TE Connectivity, operating in the field of connectors and sensors, has continued to make progress toward environmental, social and governance goals. Its efforts are detailed in the annual corporate responsibility report. Working toward the 2030 One Connected World goals, the past year TE reduced absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 30% and procured 37% of its electricity from zero-emissions sources, including renewable energy. The company also adopted two new sustainability targets for 2025. By then, TE aims to reduce its hazardous waste by 15%. It will also work to reduce water usage at 30 targeted sites in water-stressed areas by 15%. Additionally, TE has increased diversity, with 67% of its board of directors identifying as diverse and a growing number of women in leadership positions. Charitable efforts by TE and the TE Foundation have succeeded in reaching more than 1.5 million people in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in the last two years, already more than halfway toward the 2030 goal of 3 million. The company also launched its first enterprise global human rights policy.
