Trimble’s 2022 Sustainability Report

Trimble, a technology company renowned for its innovative solutions in various sectors, has showcased its dedication to a sustainable future through its recently published 2022 Sustainability Report. The report highlights the progress and milestones achieved and outlines Trimble’s holistic approach to sustainability and its alignment with global frameworks.

At the heart of Trimble’s sustainability endeavors is a commitment to transforming how the world works. The 2022 Sustainability Report revolves around “Shaping a Sustainable Future,” which encapsulates Trimble’s values, mission, and deep-seated responsibility towards the planet and the communities it serves. But more than just an exercise in greenwashing, Trimble’s approach to sustainability is deeply integrated into its business strategy, encompassing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitments that echo the company’s dedication to resilience, empowerment, and integrity.

The 2022 Sustainability Report outlines several notable accomplishments that underscore Trimble’s commitment to sustainability:
  1. Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD): Trimble’s alignment with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures reflects its transparency and responsibility regarding operational climate risks and opportunities. Trimble provides stakeholders with vital information about its climate-related strategies by embracing a globally recognized reporting framework.
  2. Executive Incentive Program: Demonstrating its dedication to people and the planet, Trimble has introduced a “People & Planet” modifier to its executive long-term incentive program. This unique addition ensures that the company’s executive compensation is closely tied to science-based carbon reduction and workforce diversity goals, fostering a more comprehensive approach to sustainability.
  3. Financial Commitments for Sustainability: Trimble’s commitment to sustainability goes beyond rhetoric. The company’s new five-year $1.25 billion revolving credit facility is designed to drive progress in reducing its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) footprint and increasing gender diversity within the workforce. These financial commitments underscore Trimble’s dedication to substantive change.
  4. Renewable Energy Progress: Trimble is actively reducing its carbon footprint as the world pivots towards renewable energy. The company’s progress towards sourcing 100 percent renewable electricity by 2025 is commendable, with achievements like utilizing local energy producers in Germany and harnessing hydroelectricity and solar power across its global facilities.
  5. Education and Community Building: Trimble’s commitment to shaping global leaders is evident through its Trimble Technology Labs (TTL) initiative. With 28 TTLs spanning 14 countries, Trimble fosters knowledge exchange and community building in construction, geospatial sciences, and natural resources. The inaugural Trimble TTL Conference at Edinburgh Napier University is a testament to this commitment.

Trimble’s sustainability report is a collection of achievements and a comprehensive overview of its initiatives and performance. From sustainability approaches and end-user industry solutions to community philanthropy through the Trimble Foundation Fund, employee engagement and development, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts, the report covers a broad spectrum of Trimble’s sustainable activities. Moreover, the company’s governance practices ensure its sustainability efforts are integrated into its core operations.

Trimble’s commitment to sustainability is further reinforced by its alignment with global standards. The report’s data adheres to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards for Electrical and Electronic Components and Software and IT Services. Furthermore, Trimble’s initiatives align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), solidifying its dedication to a broader global agenda for sustainable progress.

Trimble’s dedication to shaping a sustainable future while delivering technological solutions that transcend industries underscores the power of purpose-driven business. The company’s core technologies, ranging from positioning and modeling to connectivity and data analytics, boost productivity, safety, and quality and contribute to transparency and sustainability.

Trimble’s commitment to sustainability is an inspiring example of how businesses can drive positive change in an interconnected world where companies wield immense influence. By integrating sustainability into its DNA and sharing its progress transparently through reports like these, Trimble is a beacon of corporate responsibility and a catalyst for a more sustainable future.
