IRVINE, Calif. — Sept. 25, 2017 — Ingram Micro Inc. today released its first annual corporate social responsibility (CSR) report, outlining the company’s socio-environmental strategy, as well as its performance for the 2016 year.
The report aims to address the shared priorities of diverse stakeholders whose input helped shape the company’s materiality assessment and strategy. It highlights progress on environmental, workplace and supply chain responsibility issues based on the company’s comprehensive three-year global CSR strategy, launched in early 2016.
Key accomplishments include the implementation of global information management systems, adopting the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct, releasing a supplier code of ethics, reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions by more than 5 percent over the prior year and increasing the number of women in leadership roles throughout the company.
Ingram Micro also continues to develop circular economy solutions through investments in electronics repair, refurbishment and recycling activities, as well as device-as-a-service (DaaS) and innovative cloud-based offerings. The results of these efforts are already proving impactful, as in 2016, Ingram Micro services centers processed nearly 8.8 million kilograms of waste electronics.
In 2017, the company expects to further improve the management of sustainability data, continue to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and waste, and increase renewable energy purchases.
