For nearly 100 years, Rheem has been a leader in heating, cooling and water heating innovation. And we continue to lead with our bold approach to improvements for our products and processes to dramatically cut our impact on the environment, while empowering both our customers and employees to work and live sustainably. It's all a part of our bold vision for the future and equally bold commitment:
We are focused on innovating with intent, engineering solutions with lifetime sustainability in mind—from material selection to smart features to responsible recycling.
Our 2025 goal: Launch a line of heating, cooling and water heating products that boast a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas footprint.
We strive for operational excellence, working smarter and more sustainably to consume fewer resources, generate less waste and ensure simpler, safer processes.
Our 2025 goal: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% and achieve zero waste to landfill in our global manufacturing operations.
We hire and inspire our teams to be next-generation thinkers and responsible stewards of our industry, the greater community and the environment.
Our 2025 goal: Rheem will train 250,000 plumbers and contractors on sustainable products or sustainable installation and recycling best practices.
“To coincide with our 100-year anniversary in 2025, we have challenged our teams around the world with a commitment to sustainability that’s equally momentous—we are designing for zero waste.”
“Sustainability is an end-to-end thing. Rheem has a responsibility to reduce energy consumption and waste during the manufacturing phase while offering consumers high-efficiency products that have a low impact on the planet.”
“Sustainability matters to the success of Rheem as well as the success of the greater world. Our sustainability initiative touches every part of our business, whether it’s continuing to innovate best-in-class products and processes or supporting our customers and employees.”
“Rheem is now making sustainability a priority during the front-end innovation portion of our development process—that’s a game changer . Along with higher efficiency products, we are dedicating our time to finding recyclable solutions for packaging and parts, exploring greener transportation methods and minimizing waste during the manufacturing processes.”
“We’re dedicated to promoting a culture of strong sustainability. By being closely involved in regulatory decisions, we ensure the market has time to react and manufacturers have time to come up with sustainable solutions in a consistent fashion across the globe.”
I like to understand what Rheem looks like when compared to other companies, and our sustainability initiatives definitely stand out. People want to work in an organization where they believe that what they are doing matters—they want to be a part of something bigger than themselves.
