A smaller footprint is our best foot forward

The technology we help our partners create enables many possibilities that make the world smarter and safer, but for us, protecting our planet’s environment has to come first. Sustainability is a big part of the “what” we’re reaching for each and every day.

Because we operate in so many countries across oceans and continents, it is of utmost importance that we pay careful attention to managing our carbon footprint and our impact on every community where we do business. That means holding ourselves – and our partners – to the highest standards. We encourage manufacturers to make environmental information available on their websites and partner closely with suppliers to provide customers with all the proper information/declarations available from related manufacturers. Read our Global Environmental Policy and CY16-2017 Carbon Footprint Analysis.

While continually recognized for our environmental efforts, we are committed to coming up with smart ideas to do more.
