As a global leader in environmental, health and safety protection, Tyco practices the following three foundational initiatives for all beneficiaries of its products and services:

  • Energy reduction— Tyco designs resource-conserving devices and processes for retailers, while keeping Tyco’s operations and facilities efficient, and using renewable energy sources where possible. Tyco’s solutions, including American Dynamics branded video solutions and Sensormatic branded Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) systems, traffic counting sensors and RFID-based inventory visibility readers are designed to minimize environmental impact system-wide, without compromising efficiency, performance or security.
