Conserve, reuse, and recycle
Where feasible, we conserve natural resources through the procurement and use of recycled, recyclable and renewable materials; efficient use of energy; and participation in recycling programs for our products.
Reduction and disposal of wastes
At our facilities, we reduce and, where possible, eliminate waste through reuse of materials, source reduction, and recycling. All waste is handled and disposed of through safe and environmentally responsible methods.
Our environmental policies and practices aim to protect, conserve, and sustain the world’s natural resources as well as our customers, and the communities where we live and operate. We use Microsoft digital technology to increase our environmental sustainability.
Continually improve our performance
We set objectives and targets to ensure continuous improvement in our environmental and management systems. We value employee contributions to our initiatives. We regularly review aspects of our business activities and assess our programs, practices, and goals to evaluate our progress. We proactively manage environmental risks and opportunities to identify areas for further improvements. We collaborate with our suppliers to ensure they share the same level of commitment to the continuous improvement of their environmental performance.
Responsible sourcing of raw materials
We are committed to responsibly sourcing raw materials, as stated in our Responsible Sourcing of Raw Materials Policy. By collaborating with people, industry groups, and NGOs, we strive to establish responsible practices in the harvesting and extraction of materials used in our products.
Demonstrate responsibility to our stakeholders
We engage our stakeholders about our objectives and targets, and periodically communicate our progress to our board, shareholders, customers, and members of the public.
