In addition, we encourage sites and employees on the local level to consider and implement environmentally friendly initiatives, resulting for example, in the following projects in 2021:
- Elimination of plastic straws in January in Houston
- Entry into an electricity contract in Germany that requires 100% certified clean energy sources
- Installation of Electric Vehicle charging stations in Houston and Germany
- The Scrigno Project, an effort to optimize the manufacturing process in Mirandola, Italy, implementing a mobile ISO 6 environment to transport components directly from one cleanroom to the other, without waste and in an environmentally friendly way. The team’s initiative resulted in a reduction of packing time and movement, a generation of $150,000/year in savings, a shorter logistics chain, lower inventory and a reduction in consumption of 200,000 plastic bags/year and 3,000 cartons/year.
