Chicago, Ill. – October 20, 2016 – Furthering its commitment to environmental responsibility, Clover Imaging Group is proud to announce that its Mexicali, Mexico manufacturing facilities have secured the ISO 14001:2004 standard, an international standard that focuses on a company’s management of environmental responsibilities including implementing an environmental management system (EMS). The standard specifies requirements for activities such as determining environmental aspects and impacts of products, activities, and services; planning environmental objectives with measurable targets; and implementing and operating programs to meet objectives and targets.
“I want to congratulate all of our 3,600 associates and the Mexicali imaging management team as well as everybody else that played a key role in achieving this environmental standard,” said Ino Lando, EVP and General Manger for Clover Mexico. “The process is extremely important to operating at the highest level of eco-friendly manufacturing, which is of paramount importance here at Clover.”
Environmental sustainability is a significant priority for CIG. As one of the company’s core values, CIG strives to engage and educate its employees, demand quality and performance in production processes, and seek newer and better alternatives every day for minimizing the environmental footprint of the company and its customers. In August 2016, CIG announced that Clover Mexico had achieved the R2:2013 Standard, the premier global environmental, worker health and safety standard for the electronics refurbishing and recycling industry.
CIG’s environmental sustainability initiatives include, but are not limited to, reclaiming as much reusable material as possible; measuring the impact of water and energy consumption to minimize waste; processing end-of-life assets that are not suited for remanufacturing; and exceeding global industry practices for responsible materials recycling.
