Stewardship

Action has a responsibility to be stewards of our environment. In all areas of our manufacturing and business operations we seek to develop processes where conservation, sustainability, and chemical compliance are integrated key objectives of our overall business strategy.

  • Environmental Responsibility

    We are committed to minimizing the impact of our activities on the environment by:

    Minimizing waste by ensuring they are as efficient as possible.

    Actively promoting the elimination and recycling of waste both internally and amongst our customers and suppliers.

    Where landfill usage is required, to actively promote to those suppliers the maximization of methane gas recovery technology to produce renewable energy.

    Working with suppliers and customers, to source and promote a product range to minimize the environmental impact of both production and distribution.

    Meeting or exceeding all mandated environmental regulations.

  • Conservation

    We conserve through the design of our new corporate headquarters:

    Recycle steel used for the building’s frame and roofing.

    Gravel from recycled concrete used for parking lot paving.

    Special windows reduce lighting requirements during daytime hours.

    Heating and cooling systems with economizers for high energy efficiency.

    The use of energy-efficient F-5 fixtures throughout our facilities—decreasing watt usage by 53%.

    The use of motion sensor lighting in both manufacturing and office areas.

    The implementation of lean technologies such as 5S to improve process and manufacturing efficiencies.

  • Recycling

    Our recycling program of production waste materials includes:

    Promotion of returnable dunnage with customers.

    Recycling of all paper, cardboard, batteries and wooden skids.

    Recycling of old and waste oil.

    Sending all of our non-recyclable materials to a certified landfill site which recovers methane gas to produce electricity to warm 4,800 homes locally.

    The development of a Baseline audit of all key suppliers to identify sustainability programs and partnership initiatives.

  • Supply Chain Responsibility

    Action holds its suppliers to high standards of sustainability and labor and hurman resources including:

    Compliance—Action suppliers must comply with all national and other applicable laws and regulations relating to environmental, health & safety, transportation, human resource/labor practices, and the content of material. Suppliers should be able to demonstrate a compliance system and a satisfactory record of compliance.

    Corrective Action—Where non-compliance is identified, either by the supplier or by Action, Action expects the supplier to develop a corrective action plan so that supply to Action can continue.

    Environmental, Health and Safety—Action suppliers are expected to comply with all local and county laws for environmental, health and safety regulations. As a part of our Sustainability strategy, we expect our suppliers to minimize the impact of their raw materials and operations on the environment.
