Our Commitment to the Planet

We seek to reduce resource use and waste output in our own operations and work with our suppliers to do the same.


Our Approach to the Environment

We frame our environmental program using two primary concepts: resource use and waste output.

  • Comply with all laws and regulations related to resource use.
  • Identify opportunities to reduce resource use.
  • Comply with all waste disposal laws and regulations.
  • Identify opportunities to reduce and reuse waste.

Our Environmental Policy

UEI is committed to protecting the environment, ensuring compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations, and meeting the needs of our customers. We continually investigate and implement activities that reduce our environmental footprint, improve efficiency, and help our customers meet their sustainability objectives.


Our Environmental Data

We believe that you cannot manage what you cannot measure. To better understand our environmental footprint, we launched a global effort to collect, analyze, and verify our environmental data. Key metrics include our energy and water use, waste output, and the emissions associated with our operations and our value chain.

Environmental Management Systems

To operate in a manner that upholds responsible resource use and environmental footprint reduction, each of our manufacturing facilities maintains an effective environmental management system (EMS) that is regularly audited and certified to the ISO 14001:2015 standard. 


Our EMS programs

  • Establish policies, procedures, and action frameworks for the manufacturing facility.
  • Outline site-specific environmental goals and objectives.
  • Identify risks and the controls required to mitigate risks.
  • Recommend measurement and monitoring cadence.

Product Sustainability

When we reduce emissions associated with production, we help reduce our customer’s value chain emissions; however, we can further contribute to our customer’s sustainability journey by offering sustainable products. We understand that our products and our packaging have an impact on the environment, and we are continuously seeking opportunities to reduce this footprint.
