Environmental Policy
Brother International Corporation (BIC) is committed to maintaining its reputation with the Brother Group, employees, customers, vendors, and the community for being an environmentally responsible corporate citizen. BIC seeks to responsibly coexist with the environment and provide a safe work place for our employees. Concern for the environment and the safety of our employees is a cornerstone of our activities. To that end, Brother is committed to the following principles:
  1. Setting environmental objectives and targets for our business. We will continually strive to improve the environmental impact of our business by measuring our performance against the objectives and targets that we set. Accordingly, the environmental objectives and targets shall be an integral part to our business decision making process.
  2. Complying with all applicable environmental laws and regulations in every jurisdiction where we do business. Where laws and regulations do not exist, we will apply responsible standards.
  3. Promoting the prevention of pollution by always considering the efficient use of resources. We will evaluate the opportunities to recycle, reuse, reduce, refuse and reform resources throughout the life cycle of our products.
  4. Enhancing the environmental understanding and awareness of our employees and customers through activities such as environmental education and public relations. We will actively disclose our environmental efforts to our customers, local communities and other interested parties to further foster understanding.
We will periodically review this policy to insure its implementation and provide adequate resources.
