With over 30,000 associates and around 20 million square feet of building space worldwide, Ingram Micro’s operations generate direct environmental impacts from greenhouse gas emissions, material consumption and waste generation, as well as indirect impacts from land use. In addition, our supply chain partners provide everything from energy and freight services to technology hardware and warehousing equipment, causing significant additional impacts.
Our Environmental Management Priorities
We perform materiality assessments at 3-year intervals. Our last assessment identified energy, emissions, waste and materials as key environmental aspects. Some of our focus areas are represented here. You can learn more about them in our annual CSR reports.
Below, we outline initiatives to reduce our ecological footprint accordingly:
Environmental Management Systems
Ingram Micro’s Environmental Stewardship policy requires facilities to implement site-specific environmental management systems (EMS) in alignment with the ISO 14001 framework. Where feasible and according to business need, facilities are encouraged to pursue EMS certification. Our priority is to develop systems that are effectively minimizing our environmental impact through leadership involvement, risk-based planning, collaboration, operationalizing impact reduction, performance measurement and continuous improvement.
