Environmental Management System

We’re proud of our long-standing commitment to environmental progress and developing innovative solutions to lessen our impact on the environment.

We maintain an environmental management system that meets the ISO 14001 requirements. This system includes programs for:

Identifying and managing the environmental input of our operations

Organizational structure and responsibilities for environmental management and control

Methods to measure, analyze and improve the environmental aspects of our operations

Management review process to ensure suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of the environmental management program

These programs are enabled through consistent global business systems, thorough training and certification critical to environmental responsibilities, training in environmental awareness and well-documented operating procedures.

The goals of the environmental management system are prevention of injuries and pollution, regulatory compliance and improvement of performance.

Green Initiatives

CMC Materials recognizes that being a responsible business is key to our continued success. As we look to the future, we intend to continue to reduce our environmental impact by encouraging our suppliers to share our environmental vision. Through our own initiatives, as well as through joint programs with our customers and suppliers, we aim to minimize our overall environmental impact and be a responsible corporate citizen.

To help meet these goals, CMC has five year goals to reduce electricity and water consumption and landfill waste. The charts below show our performance to date, click on each chart to expand details.
