As part of our ISO 14001 processes, our team tracks gas and electric usage, as well as recycling metrics.

Scope 3

Peerless has also undertaken efforts to reduce our Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions, including reducing carbon-heavy travel when possible and working with our suppliers and vendors to encourage GHG reductions. In 2023, Peerless upgraded almost all HVAC systems at its corporate headquarters to help reduce energy costs and promote efficient use of resources.

The Peerless Quality Team monitors and tracks progress toward our reduction goals, which are calculated with methodology established by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi).
