Waste Reduction Practices
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) designs products that make efficient use of raw materials to minimize the amount of materials utilized. Additionally, design-for-environment concepts are incorporated to use alternative chemical constituents in our products. We also attempt to minimize quantities of incoming packaging materials to reduce waste.
A key component of ADI’s approach to environmental management is pollution prevention. Pollution prevention practices are incorporated into manufacturing operations.
- Stormwater Prevention Plan: Locations of materials and industrial activities that are potentially exposed to rainwater and snow melt are included in our stormwater prevention plan to ensure that appropriate pollution prevention and best management practices are in place and consistently being improved. We have built enclosures to protect transportation-associated loading and unloading activities, waste rolloff containers, and solid waste/recycling compactors. Our inspection program includes visual monitoring and sampling to promote effectiveness of the prevention plan.
- Hazardous Materials Contingency Plan: This plan is designed to prevent and minimize hazards to public health, safety, or welfare of the environment (fires, explosions, spills, or any other unplanned sudden or nonsudden release of hazardous wastes, hazardous waste constituents, or hazardous materials to the air, soil, surface water, or ground water). This plan is incorporated in the emergency preparedness and response requirements in the ADI ISO 14001/OHSAS 18001 environmental, health, and safety management system.
- Oil Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan: This plan features prevention and control technology to reduce the likelihood of a discharge of oil from the involved site or facility.
||5% reduction from 2010 baseline
ADI has a program to recycle materials and avoid landfills or incinerators. We educate our employees on reducing solid waste generation both at home and in the workplace. For example, awareness campaign materials posted on our bulletin boards and tv screens encourage waste reduction. In addition, we are raising environmental awareness of local community residents by conducting waste management seminars.
