Our sustainability strategy is an integral segment of our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts.

In order to support our reduction goals, we research and adopt new technologies such as energy management systems, energy efficient air compressors, ovens, lighting, occupant sensors, increase recycling efforts, efficiency gains, packaging reduction projects, etc.
