In our operations and our products, environmental sustainability is a top priority. At every opportunity, we strive to reduce our use, make smarter choices, and do our part for a greener tomorrow.
In our products, we are striving to eliminate the use of heavy metals and toxic substances. Our comprehensive Green Policy requires our suppliers restrict or eliminate use of these chemicals, and we work closely with regulatory organizations to report this information. To monitor compliance, we conduct periodic lab testing and supplier audits. We have also made significant efforts to minimize our packaging. Our warranty and quick start guides are now found online. And we use materials that are easy to recycle."
Our products meet applicable worldwide environmental regulations and requirements, including the European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances (EU RoHS) and the European Union Regulation, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals (EU REACH).
We strive to maximize operational efficiency while minimizing environmental impact at our facilities worldwide.
We conducted our first Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) assessment in 2011, which showed us on par with other industry leaders.
We conducted our second CDP assessment in 2012, with significant improvements in the areas of governance, verification, emission management, and reporting. We will continue to strive to become a CDP leader in the future. Read our full CDP disclosure.
Aligning our business goals with our green initiatives is an ongoing emphasis. We advance green IT through technology selection, architecture, and employee use of technology throughout the company.
