Increase annual revenue by at least $2 billion from products that create energy efficiency and/or significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We estimate these products will contribute at least 40 million tons of additional CO2 equivalent reductions by our customers and consumers.
To continue to encourage renewable energy options, we have made a new energy goal to reduce non-renewable energy use by 10% per adjusted dollar revenue by 2020 compared to a baseline of 2010. We have set a milestone of 3% reduction by 2015.
