Product & Process Waste Management and Substance Control
Matrox is committed to supporting global sustainable development through an environmental policy that promotes eco-friendly solutions in product development, supply chain management, and manufacturing.
We have continuously worked on facilitating the waste management of our products by conforming to legislations concerning waste from electrical and electronic equipment, packaging, and batteries.
Matrox also has policies in place that ensure that none of its products or manufacturing processes contain any regulated materials or substances beyond tolerable amounts. These policies include compliance to international and local regulations with regards to controlled substances including, but not limited to, ozone-depleting substances which are regulated under the Montreal Protocol, radioactive materials, designated substances, and other elements that are harmful to the environment.
Matrox will continue to adjust its processes as environmental policies and compliance requirements evolve.
Optimization of Operational and Maintenance Practices
Measures to reduce our facility’s carbon footprint include:
- Increasing operating efficiencies throughout the organization
- Lowering electrical usage
- Improving effectiveness of existing staff
- Optimizing IT operations
- Decreasing paper usage
- Reducing landfill waste
Matrox strives to reduce the amount of non-hazardous waste destined for landfill. We do this by reducing, reusing and recycling wherever possible. Our largest sources of non-hazardous waste include packaging materials such as bubble wrap, polyurethane foam, polyethylene foam and corrugated cardboard. When disposal is required, we ensure that all waste is disposed of responsibly.
