3.) How does your partnership with Call2Recycle support Stanley Black & Decker’s battery stewardship goals?
Our partnership with Call2Recycle supports our 2030 Corporate Social Responsibility Goals under the Innovate with Purpose Pillar. By 2030, we intend to innovate our products to enhance the lives of 500 million people and meet underserved societal needs, while improving the lifecycle impact of our products. A great way to improve the lifecycle impact of a product is to ensure its materials are collected and used in future products. Call2Recycle provides the pathway for the materials in our batteries to see a second life rather than being lost to the landfill.Share
