Deere & Company plans to further reduce its total global greenhouse gas emissions by 25% per dollar of revenue from 2005 to 2014. It committed to the reduction goal in conjunction with its participation in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Leaders program.

Climate Leaders is a voluntary industry-government partnership that works with companies to develop long-term comprehensive climate change strategies. Participants set a corporate-wide greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal and annually report their progress to the EPA. Through program participation, companies create a credible record of their accomplishments, reduce their impact on the global environment, and identify themselves as corporate climate leaders.

John Deere's energy management program began in 1973 and requires company operations to implement energy-conservation initiatives and track energy use. Deere added a worldwide greenhouse gas emissions inventory program in 2003.

Actions to achieve the goal include John Deere Harvester Works' recent installation of fluorescent lighting fixtures throughout main assembly and sheet-metal fabrication, reducing demand for electricity and contributing to a total reduction of 3000 tons of greenhouse gases emitted each year by the East Moline, IL, U.S. factory. John Deere's Zweibruecken Works in Germany will install two carbon-neutral biomass boilers this year to generate energy to heat facilities, air-condition offices, and provide heat for various manufacturing processes.
