Sustainable Manufacturing

Energy Use & Management

Our production facilities consume energy in building heating, metal fabrication and supplementary manufacturing processes required to create AGI products. We strive to measure and improve the energy intensity of our manufacturing operations.

Water Efficiency & Recycling

Our manufacturing processes consume minimal water to produce high quality products. We track and reduce net water consumption and monitor appropriate water discharge at our facilities. We harvest rainwater and recycle water to reduce our net consumption at sites located in high water risk areas (as classified by the World Resources Institute (WRI) Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas). Approximately 40% of AGI manufacturing facilities are located in areas classified as having “high” or “extremely high” water stress levels.

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions

We measure our direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) GHG emissions in carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent on an annual basis in alignment with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard. We have committed to a target to reduce Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions from our operations as a percentage of sales by 25% by 2030, compared to a 2021 baseline.

We have also focused our efforts on strengthening our capabilities and establishing an executive-level cross-functional working group to identify climate-related risks and opportunities for AGI. These risks and opportunities, and our approach to Board and management oversight, are further described in AGI’s 2023 Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) report (in the appendix of our 2023 Sustainability Report).
