Environment, Health & Safety

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:


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.

Worth Noting

Please note when reviewing the data, during 2009 we completed the decommissioning of our Cambridge, Massachusetts, production facility and transferred these operations to our Wilmington, Massachusetts, facility.

In the second half of 2008 and throughout almost all of 2009, ADI, like the rest of the semiconductor industry, was impacted by the global recession. Our manufacturing output was significantly reduced to match lower demand. Because of this, many of the normalized environmental indicators that we track increased or did not show significant improvements in 2009, leading to atypical results.

Our current environmental goals remain at 5% reduction of normalized figures by 2015 from 2010 baseline.

As of 2013, we have made progress toward these goals and anticipate that we will meet our projected targets.

Environmental Goals 2015

Occupational Health & Safety

In our health and safety compliance program, ADI uses two 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 below industry averages due to our ongoing commitment to employee health and safety in our facilities.

These tables have been updated using comprehensive corrected benchmark data for 2011 and 2012 as advised by the BLS in November 2014.
