SUSTAINABILITY

Working Together to Protect our World

NEI is committed to resource conservation, waste and pollution reduction, and innovative manufacturing processes designed to advance our environmental priorities. 

Sustainability Commitment

NEI is committed to achieving a set of robust sustainability goals by 2026: 

  • 10% reduction in energy usage
  • 25% reduction in recycled waste
  • 20% reduction in water usage

At present, nearly 100% of NEI’s final products can be recycled through the same partners and suppliers.  

Better Plants Program

Through Better Plants, manufacturers set ambitious energy savings goals, develop energy management plans, and track and report their annual progress. More than 235 companies and industrial organizations are leading the way on energy efficiency by participating in Better Plants and have collectively saved over 1.7 QBtus and $8.2 billion in cumulative energy costs as of 2020.

To support the attainment of our sustainability goals, NEI has joined the Department of Energy’s Better Plants program, a national partnership initiative to drive significant improvement in energy efficiency across the U.S. industry.
