Environment

Valvoline’s culture of sustainability and product stewardship helps ensure that we deliver our products and services with a commitment to environmental responsibility.

CDP Reporting

In our third year of participating in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Climate Change Survey, Valvoline received a “B” score which CDP identified as above Global and North America average. We attribute this score, in part, to Valvoline’s transparency, efficient operations, and our product research and development efforts. CDP category scores show Valvoline received high scores in business strategy and financial planning, governance, value chain engagement, risk, opportunity disclosures, and emission reduction strategies. Valvoline is working to further improve our CDP scores by setting more aggressive carbon reduction and sustainability targets undergoing third-party verification and initiating the collection of supply chain scope 3 emissions.

Valvoline’s Carbon Reduction Strategy

Valvoline’s global corporate carbon reduction strategy focuses on avoiding carbon emissions, reducing emissions within our own operations, and mitigating the remaining emissions. Valvoline seeks out opportunities to reduce carbon emissions through manufacturing and warehouse operational efficiencies, product development, additive power purchase agreements (PPAs), and purchase of renewable energy credits (RECs). In 2021, Valvoline’s manufacturing and warehouse operations reduced carbon intensity emissions by 14.5 percent. Actual carbon emissions increased by 1.2 percent due to a significant increase in global sales volume and the startup of our plant in China.

In fiscal year 2021, Valvoline manufacturing and warehouse operations increased REC purchases by 507 percent over fiscal year 2020. Valvoline will continue to expand its RECs program with the purchase of renewable energy credits as our electric purchase contracts expire. In 2021, nine percent of global Valvoline manufacturing and warehousing energy usage was offset with the purchase of RECs. These purchases addressed load at our largest US plant and our two largest US distribution centers, as well as our largest plant in Europe. Our plan is to initiate a Scope 3 inventory, expand our REC purchases, target carbon reductions at sites identified with high carbon emitting electric sources, execute a PPA, and reduce energy intensity by participating in the US Department of Energy’s Better Plant Program. With these efforts and strategies in place, Valvoline is well positioned to further reduce carbon emissions.

Based upon this progress, Valvoline is setting long term goals to reduce our Scope 1 and 2 Global Products, manufacturing and warehousing carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and reduce US manufacturing, warehousing, and lab energy intensity by 20 percent by 2029.

Manufacturing and Warehousing Operations reduced carbon intensity emissions 14.5% in 2021
