Sustainable Supply Chain Alliance Recognizes S&C Electric Company’s Landfill-Free Initiative with Supplier Case Study Award


CHICAGO, October 2, 2023 – S&C Electric Company, a leader in reliable and resilient electrical grid solutions, was recently honored for its ongoing sustainability efforts by the Electric Utility Sustainable Supply Chain Alliance (SSCA) with a ‘Leading Practices in Supply Chain Sustainability Case Study’ Award.

SSCA, an organization of utilities and suppliers working together to advance sustainability best practices in utility supply-chain activities and supplier networks, recognized S&C for its global initiative to become a 99% Landfill-Free Company. The award was presented at the 2023 SSCA Sustainable Sourcing Conference in September.

“At S&C, our vision to create an outage-free, sustainable electrical energy future means that our work to transform the grid into one that is more intelligent, reliable, and resilient is done in conjunction with proactive programs that help to reduce our environmental footprint,” said Anders Sjoelin, president and CEO of S&C Electric Company. “Responsible stewardship is one of our fundamental guiding principles at S&C, and our Landfill-Free Initiative is one of the ways we honor this commitment in our communities.”

In 2018, S&C formalized a companywide goal to divert 99% of waste generated by its global manufacturing operations from landfills. As of 2022, four out of six manufacturing locations had surpassed this goal. Of the total waste generated globally, 98.7% was diverted from landfills in 2022. About 80% was recycled, with the remaining waste converted to energy or alternative fuels, composted, or treated.
