Tyco International de Mexico team honored for commitment to sustainability and environmental best practices in manufacturing.
Tyco’s facility located in Matamoros, Tamaulipas Mexico, manufactures a range of anti-theft, security and fire protection products for retailers worldwide. The INDEX award recognizes Tyco’s sustainable business performance indicators, which include reducing greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) and water consumption, producing less industrial waste, and energy efficiency. Constructed in 2009 using recycled building materials, Tyco’s eco-friendly site features solar roof panels which supply internal LED lighting for reduced power consumption, water efficient devices, and thermal reflective building coating. The 2015 INDEX award and other associated honors from the Tamaulipas government recognize Tyco’s commitment to the community and its leadership in manufacturing best practices in environmental sustainability.
Retailers worldwide are focused on providing shoppers with green facilities that are inviting, safe and secure. With this goal in mind, Tyco Retail Solutions is continually improving product design and manufacturing and supply chain practices to deliver environmentally responsible in-store systems backed by global processes that cut waste and promote sustainability. Notable green initiatives include:
- A companywide Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) program aimed at reducing hazardous waste, greenhouse gases, and water consumption globally;
- An innovative Sensormatic source tagging recirculation program for retailers which allows hard tags to be applied at the source of manufacture, removed at the store, and then processed and returned for reapplication by garment manufacturers;
- The creation of “Energy Commissions” at its state-of-the-art global manufacturing facilities which feature initiatives designed to encourage employee participation such as tree planting and recycling contests.
“At Tyco we are committed to finding ways to save natural resources and reduce our overall environmental footprint, while delivering products that allow retailers to meet their own sustainability goals,” said Nancy Chisholm, President, Tyco Retail Solutions. “We are honored to be recognized by INDEX for our efforts at our Tyco International de Mexico facility and will continue to incorporate environmental initiatives into our business practices across our organization.”
