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.

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.
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.
As shown, ADI successfully met environmental performance goals for 2010. In the spirit of continual improvement, we re-set our baseline to 2010 and established new 5-year goals. As of 2011, we have made progress toward these new goals and anticipate that we will meet our project targets.
In our health and safety compliance program, ADI uses two industry standard metrics to assess injury performance and trends worldwide.
Our results are significantly below industry averages due to our ongoing commitment to employee health and safety in our facilities.
