Tyco Retail Solutions recognized for its commitment to helping retailers worldwide achieve measurable sustainability goals.

Leading by Example

The manufacturing facility in Mexico earned recognition nationally with a 2015 Environmental Award from the National Council of the Maquiladora and Export Manufacturing Industry of Mexico. The same facility achieved ISO 50001:2011 certification this year for its effort to conserve resources through the development of an energy management system. The facility’s most recent honor comes from Supply and Demand Chain Executive, which recognizes measurable improvements in sustainability. The Tyco Mexico facility produces a range of anti-theft, security and fire protection products for retailers worldwide and was built using recycled building materials. It features solar roof panels, which supply internal LED lighting for reduced power consumption, water efficient devices and a thermal reflective building coating. Over the course of 2.5 years the energy management system has provided a 47 percent improvement in energy efficiency.

Increased Sustainability without Decreased Efficiency

Tyco Retail Solutions believes that environmental responsibility is not only good business but a social obligation, and aims to have its actions serve the long-term interests of its customers and the world. The business is committed to delivering high quality products including industry-leading Sensormatic® Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) solutions that provide premium performance without compromising efficiency or security. The Sensormatic apparel tagging recirculation program, the first of its kind, recycled more than a billion tags in 2015 and has recycled nearly seven billion since the program began in 2010, saving a total of 35 million pounds of plastic while reducing waste and costs for customers.

In addition, Sensormatic Synergy is the latest and most power efficient system in Tyco’s detection portfolio. Its standard power management features help retailers save money and optimize power consumption by putting the system into sleep mode during non-operational and non-traffic periods.

“Sustainability is a major focus for retailers today as stores look to provide not only high quality service and security, but also implement green-friendly practices,” said Bjoern Petersen, President of Tyco Retail Solutions. “We’re proud to be named a recipient of this award and look forward to continuing to lead the way in providing sustainable supply chain solutions for our customers.”
