EcoVadis Rated

Our management system is recognized by EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, intelligence, and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains. Our assessment and approved rating allow us to continue to improve our sustainability processes.



Sustainable Sourcing

We can source steel produced from the electric arc furnace (EAF) process that reduces CO2 by 75% versus the traditional blast oxygen furnace (BOF) method. When sourcing paint and coatings, we use low-emission coatings and recycled paints to protect the environment. We also source nonhazardous chemicals, which improves safety and reduces hazardous toxins and energy consumption.

Reduced Energy Consumption

We collaborate with regional energy trusts to develop action plans and reduce energy consumption.

Our facilities are also optimized to reduce energy consumption:

  • At least 10% of our power is from renewable energy sources
  • We use lower-energy lighting
  • We use high-efficiency ovens
