Policies and Positions

Our environmental and social policies govern the way we build our products, sustain our operations and work with our suppliers. We have strict standards that guide how we do business, as well as those who do business with us.

Our environmental policies look at the environmental impact of our products throughout their lifecycle — from how they are built to how they are recycled. We also want to support our team members and ensure their workplace is inclusive and safe. Also, the materials used in our products and the suppliers that support our operations will be held to high ethical and environmental standards.
