Many, if not most things today require power – communicating, feeding our families, heating and cooling indoor environments, managing our health, travelling for work or recreation and providing goods and services to others.
Eaton's vision is to improve the quality of life and the environment through the use of power management technologies and services. We have a vital purpose in our world because we create the products and services that help our customers – and their customers – manage and use power in a way that fulfils their objectives.
The world is calling for nations and businesses to work together to address global climate change. Human-induced climate change has wrought observable impacts on people, infrastructure and ecosystems, including increases in global temperatures, more frequent heatwaves, extreme precipitation in some regions and droughts in others.
We have developed science-based greenhouse gas reduction targets consistent with the challenge presented to corporations by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. The group recently declared a climate emergency and issued an urgent request to companies around the world to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
