Respecting our Role to Reduce Environmental Impact
Boyd’s Culture of Respect encompasses not only the lives we touch but impacts the environment we share. We understand that as a member of global and local communities, it is our responsibility to implement environmentally sustainable business practices. We’d like to continue serving our customers for another 100 years sustainably, leaving the environments and communities where we operate in a better state than we found them. We want to do right by using renewable energy sources, reducing our carbon footprint, responsibly sourcing, diminishing waste, improving recycling practices, planning full product life cycle through end of life, and making responsible product material selections. We’ve implemented a broad range of sustainability measures and continue to improve our sustainability efforts. Boyd is working to reduce our climate impact by tracking energy usage and committing to clean energy programs. We’re utilizing more renewable energy sources to reduce our overall carbon footprint. Each Boyd facility is dedicated to improving recycling programs and waste management systems. We adhere to regional regulations across the globe to ensure clean soil, air and water California’s Proposition 65 in the United States to ensure our local operations do not negatively impact our communities’ safe drinking water. We leverage our material expertise to continually make conscious decisions about what product content we’re delivering to our customers. We consistently adhere to Conflict Mineral, REACH, RoHS II and many other responsible, sustainability regulations. Boyd continually streamlines manufacturing processes to decrease waste as our standard operating procedure and has done so for decades. We consider a product’s full lifecycle from design to mass production to consumer use all the way to end of life to assure that our products not only perform well but are environmentally friendly when they are disposed of. Boyd engineers take a hard look at designing our products to be as repairable, easily serviceable and recyclable as possible over its entire lifetime. This can be especially difficult to optimize performance, technology, functionality and sustainability, but we’re up to the challenge. Our environment is worth the effort.
