Building a Better Tomorrow, Together.
Every Choice Matters.
Every day, our products inspire and support the transition to a more sustainable way of life, from our innovations in energy reducing solutions to our manufacturing equipment that has enabled canmakers to reduce aluminum usage in beverage containers. Our products facilitate a more sustainable future, but it’s also important to look at our overall impact on the world. By analyzing our own operations – as well as the sources of the material we consume and our products’ eventual use – we can get a fuller picture of our sustainability.
Change Starts Here.
Belvac, in partnership with Dover, is dedicated to achieving these monumental goals. We strive to reduce not only our Scope 1 and 2 market-based GHG emissions, but also our Scope 3 market-based GHG emissions by 15%. With our innovative technology and (idea promoting) culture we are ready to confront our customer’s challenges head on. As our industry demands technology with more sustainable and renewable options, Belvac is dedicated to continued investment into Research and Development. A great example being the Servo Belvac Necker, which was unveiled in May 2023, the future of sustainable Necking operations removing the gear drive and oil bath with Servo motors. This innovation offers customers a 15% reduction in energy consumption, on a machine that is running all year long. Although this may have been our largest emissions reducing achievement, it’s not the only one. With many value engineered machines, Kit Upgrades, Assemblies, our team is always on the lookout for opportunities where emission savings are possible.
Our Scope One and Two focus has also been an important initiatives, whether it’s looking for alternative sustainable packaging options or finding options to reduce inbound shipments to reduce emissions. Recently, the Belvac leadership team in conjunction with our EHS personnel have set a goal for our largest three manufacturing locations to become zero waste by 2026, a monumental achievement.
“Belvac is dedicated to reducing our Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions, so we’ve set a
goal to make our three largest manufacturing locations net zero waste by 2026.”

Throughout our history, our commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability has created significant value for Belvac and Dover. In 2020, we began implementing a three-year plan to expand our environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) disclosures, metrics, goals, and oversight. This journey commenced after extensive dialogue with our stakeholders and with the strong support of, and collaboration with, our Board of Directors. We pursue sustainability initiatives that support our employees, customers, and communities to ensure our businesses continue to create long-term value for our shareholders. Our five strategic topics are a subset of our eighteen ESG areas of focus. Our ESG areas of focus define the topics that are more important to our business and our stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, suppliers, and customers.
