of our operations and products
HID's environmental sustainability initiative extends throughout our business, from product design, production and transportation operations, to the facilities we occupy. HID Global embraces environmental responsibility and innovation as integral parts of our business strategy and corporate culture.
We believe that it is important to understand and improve the environmental footprint of our operations and products by setting ambitious goals for certifications and business process improvements as well as measuring progress routinely.
