Right resources

What we call “Right resources” covers both complying with regulations as a minimum, as well as our own improvement efforts to cut down on our use of natural resources, and reduce waste and the use of hazardous substances. Both are material to our success and are of significant interest to our stakeholders. Governments and customers are increasingly seeking information on how we source our resources as a condition for continued business; and the more we can reduce our use of natural resources like water and limit the use of hazardous substances in our manufacturing processes, the greater the benefit to our business, employees and society as a whole.
