WASTE GENERATION & PREVENTION

Being a responsible corporate citizen means limiting the amount of waste we create, and we’ve set the goal of 0% landfill waste by 2030.

WASTE GENERATION & PREVENTION

Being a responsible corporate citizen means limiting the amount of waste we create, and we’ve set the goal of 0% landfill waste by 2030.

GETTING CLOSER TO ZERO

At ADI, we constantly look for better ways to reduce the amount of waste we generate, and more so the amount of waste we send to the landfill. However, the recent growth of our production resulted to an increase in waste generation. As a result, we did not meet our previous goal of 2.5% normalized reduction. We remain committed to going beyond our current performance, hence, we are now moving to a new goal of 0% waste to landfill.

SOLID WASTE

Solid waste generated (in tons) increases an average of 5% annually. In 2019, 60% of our solid waste was recycled.

HAZARDOUS WASTE

Hazardous waste generation (in tons) increases by 4% annually but more than a third is sent to recycling facilities.

ENVIRONMENTAL SPOTLIGHT

LEADING BY EXAMPLE

ADI Wilmington celebrated a huge milestone in 2018 when it received the Sustainability Award from the Associated Industries of Massachusetts (AIM), which recognizes companies for excellence in environmental stewardship, promotion of social well-being and contributions to economic prosperity. The award specifically acknowledged ADI’s efforts to reduce its environmental footprint at its Wilmington, MA facility, which is the site of the future global HQ.

POLLUTION PREVENTION

A key component of ADI’s approach to environmental management is pollution prevention. Pollution prevention practices are incorporated into manufacturing operations.

STORMWATER POLLUTION
PREVENTION PLAN:

Locations of materials and industrial activities that are potentially exposed to rainwater and snowmelt are included in our stormwater prevention plan to promote application and improvement of appropriate pollution prevention and best management practices. We have built enclosures to protect transportation-associated loading and unloading activities, waste roll-off containers and solid waste/recycling compactors. Our inspection program includes visual monitoring and sampling to promote effectiveness of the plan.

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
CONTINGENCY PLAN:

This plan is designed to prevent and minimize hazards to public health, safety or welfare of the environment by fires, explosions, spills or any other unplanned release of hazardous wastes, hazardous waste constituents or hazardous materials to the air, soil, surface water or groundwater. This plan is incorporated in the emergency preparedness and response requirements in the ADI ISO 14001/ISO45001 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 a site or facility.
