Timken Debuts Global Citizenship Report on Earth Day

“We know that global citizenship touches every aspect of our business and underscores the policies and practices for which we hold ourselves accountable,” said Chairman Ward J. “Tim” Timken, Jr. “By continuing to grow our enterprise in ways that build sustainable value, we help to fulfill our responsibility to our associates, customers, and all business interests, including our communities and the environment.”

Published online on the company’s website on April 22nd to commemorate Earth Day, the report reflects Timken’s strategies and goals, while also highlighting achievements during 2008 in a number of areas, including:

  • Recycling of 1.7 million tons of scrap metal, or the equivalent of 1.35 million automobiles;
  • Production of “green” products, such as fuel-efficient bearings, which have the potential to lower U.S. oil consumption by 14 million barrels a year;
  • Recycling of 21,000 tons of electric furnace dust to keep it from going to landfills;
  • Increased capacity and visibility of energy products, including new wind power capacity;
  • 100 percent sign-off on ethics policy by 8,500 global salaried associates;
  • Significant reduction in lost-time accidents over the past five years;
