Environmental Matters
 
We are committed to achieving high standards of environmental quality and product safety, and strive to provide a safe and healthy workplace for our employees, contractors and the communities in which we do business. We have environmental, health and safety (EHS) policies and disciplines that are applied to our operations. We closely monitor the environmental laws and regulations in the countries in which we operate and believe we are in compliance in all material respects with federal, state and local regulations pertaining to environmental protection.
 
Many of our worldwide manufacturing sites are certified to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 environmental management system standard, which requires that a broad range of environmental processes and policies be in place to minimize environmental impact, maintain compliance with environmental regulations, and communicate effectively with interested stakeholders. Our ISO 14001 environmental auditing program includes not only compliance components, but also modules on business risk, environmental excellence and management systems. We have internal processes that focus on minimizing and properly managing hazardous materials used in our facilities and products. We monitor regulatory and resource trends and set short and long-term targets to continually improve our environmental performance.
 
The manufacture, assembly and testing of our products are subject to a broad array of laws and regulations, including restrictions on the use of hazardous materials. We have a program for compliance with the European Union RoHS and WEEE Directives, the China RoHS laws and similar laws.
