Sustainability Goals

The reduction of greenhouse gases from operations is a key tenet of RI&S' sustainability program. The business is responsible for operating facilities in ways that efficiently use resources and minimize greenhouse gas emissions, developing robust and innovative programs to meet these commitments.

To minimize resource strain, RI&S prioritizes water reuse to conserve local water resources. Its waste diversion and zero-waste programs have been publicly recognized for innovation in waste reuse, recycling and composting. These programs have been standardized across its facilities.

Sustainability is about collaboration, and RI&S supports and engages with its suppliers and vendors to meet commitments together. By forging these partnerships based on circular economy principles, they’ve been able to solve sustainability challenges in hard-to-tackle areas such as waste in clean rooms and labs, responsible electronic waste management, and lifecycle sustainability of campus cafeterias.
