Xyratex takes our responsibility for the environment seriously, regarding our own activities and those of our suppliers, and endeavor to support the environmental aims and initiatives of our customers. Xyratex aims to identify and minimize any negative environmental impacts of its products and business activities, specifically to ensure that:
It is our policy to prohibit the use of all substances identified within the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive and the Chinese "Administration on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products" law (China RoHS). It is Xyratex's objective, where possible, to ensure all of its products sold within the European Union and China comply with these directives and laws. Xyratex is committed to designing for the environment to ensure all products are capable of being recycled within the requirements of national and international legislation.
In 2007 Xyratex successfully met the requirements for ISO 14001 at its Seremban and Sacramento manufacturing locations. Since 2005 we have successfully met the compliance requirements for ISO 14001 at our U.K. research and production facility in Havant.
