ADI and its employees are committed to protecting the environment and the health & safety of fellow employees, customers, and the public.

Goals & Performance


Current EH&S Goals and Performance

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) addresses its environment, health, and safety responsibilities through an integrated EH&S management system. All of our production facilities worldwide are certified to ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. ADI sets EH&S objectives and targets and has programs to meet these goals. As stated in our Corporate EH&S Policy , we are also committed to continually improving our environmental, health, and safety performance.

We are committed to protecting our employees’ health and safety in our facilities. Having a safe and healthy work environment is a major component of our sustainability program. ADI establishes health and safety performance objectives and implements them on an annual basis. Our program is designed to promote worksite health and employee well being as well as to reduce the number of injuries, lost work days, and absenteeism.

View performance in each of the key areas:


Environmental

We are committed to operating in a way that minimizes adverse impacts to the environment and conserves resources that we use in our operations. We monitor the use of resources (energy, water, and materials) in our production operations and work to prevent the loss of these resources in our discharges and emissions. Maintaining a preventive approach to resource utilization is a key element of our program.

We establish environmental performance objectives using a five-year planning horizon with annual updates that are included in our objectives, targets, and programs. Progress is reviewed quarterly at the corporate level and monthly at the site level, and senior management allocates resources appropriately to support keeping programs on plan.

Environmental Goals

We are committed to operating in a way that minimizes impacts to the environment and conserves resources used in our operations. We monitor the use of resources (energy, water, and materials) in our production operations and work to reduce the loss of these resources via discharges and emissions.

We establish environmental performance objectives using a five-year planning horizon, and make annual updates to our objectives, targets, and programs. Progress is reviewed quarterly at the corporate level and monthly at the site level, and senior management allocates resources appropriately to help keep programs on plan. We started in 2006 with a 10% reduction by 2010 followed by a half-life reduction of 5% by 2015. For our next  goal, we have set another half-life reduction of 2.5% by 2020 from our 2015 baseline.

Our 2015 performance against our 2010 goals is available in our Sustainability Report 2014-2015. When reviewing our 2016 performance from the previous year, note that there have been several expansion and growth-related activities within the company not directly related to production volume, which is our normalizing factor. These activities resulted to absolute increases in our utilities as well as waste generation. We expect that these would normalize upon completion of these expansion activities. We subsequently anticipate meeting our 2020 goals.

Occupational Health & Safety

In our health and safety compliance program, ADI uses two OSHA industry standard metrics to assess injury performance and trends worldwide.

  • Incident rate — number of reportable incidents per 100 employees working a full year
  • Lost workday case rate — number of incidents requiring time away from work per 100 employees working a full year

Our results are significantly better than industry averages due to our ongoing commitment to employee health and safety in our facilities. We aim to stay below the US Semiconductor Industry Incident Rate and Lost Work Day Case Rate.
