We are constantly reducing the environmental impact of our R&D and mass production activities.
To manage this on an ongoing basis, in 2009 we implemented ISO 14001 environmental management system at all our facilities worldwide.
Before 2020 we plan to reduce the actual score of 25 significant environmental aspects, including plastic waste, fluorescent lamps, CO2 emission, by at least half. We will continue ensuring the evaluation system is in place for our new technologies to continue to minimize the impact on the environment.
Regular audits confirm that the environmental protection measures implemented at Monocrystal are working and demonstrating measurable results.
Additionally we will launch our new program aimed at encouraging our suppliers to develop ecological mentality. We are planning to increase the share of A-class suppliers conforming to our ecological policies by 15%.
