Since 1999, our plants have been focused on the reduction of CO2 emissions from our own manufacturing facilities in addition to producing products to minimize energy consumption. Consistently we have exceeded a year-over year target of 1% CO2 reduction per production unit, and have also reduced the absolute CO2 emission levels, independent of production levels. These achievements are made through investment in advanced environmentally friendly facilities and through a global initiative on reduction of waste.
