ESG Roadmap

DESIGN FOR CIRCULARITY

We are carefully considering every aspect of our product design, including: component materials, performance, production processes, fixture lifespan and end of life impact. Not only are we making meaningful strides in these areas, we are also putting a focus on transparent reporting of materials and carbon impact.

LOCALISE SUPPLY CHAIN

Global sourcing of components not only adds complexity to materials planning, but the carbon emitted from long-range transport related to upstream supply chain is among Dialight’s largest carbon impacts. We will be aggressively targeting this area with a dedicated task force.

MOVE TO GREENER LOGISTICS

Transport of finished goods to customers by road and air is a significant contributor to our total carbon footprint. As more providers embrace renewable energy powered fleets, we will request and prioritise these means of transport.                                                                 .

RETHINK ENERGY USAGE

Energy efficiency is central to our value proposition as well as our commitment to becoming net zero. Our factories already feature Dialight’s highly efficient LED lighting, and now our focus is on converting those sites to renewable energy. Starting in 2022 we will be installing solar panels at our Roxboro, NC facility. For our rented office spaces, we are moving to more energy efficient solutions including use of LED lighting and modern HVAC systems. In 2022, we will begin upgrading our Farmingdale, NJ North American headquarters offices to LED lighting.

RESPONSIBLY MANAGE USE OF NATURAL RESOURCES

In our day to day lives both inside and outside of the office there are opportunities to prioritise conservation and either use less or switch to more sustainable materials. As a corporation we will be holistically evaluating our use of paper products for day-to-day office supplies, collateral, and product packaging and pursuing more sustainable solutions where possible.
