At Oliver, we take corporate responsibility and environmental stewardship seriously. Our sustainability practices include a focus on our people, our business, and our planet.
At Oliver, we use a three tier model to maintain a balanced approach to sustainability.
Our Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability Policy (EHS) helps guide the complex business issues we face. We follow EHS laws, regulations, and company standards and evaluate product design and all manufacturing and distribution processes and services to improve this performance. We strive to continuously reduce the amount of energy required to produce our products and operate our facilities with the goal to achieve zero landfill impact through recycling programs and projects.
We embrace responsible best practices throughout the company and take great pride in promoting human and environmental health.
Oliver is committed to its employees, and we provide a safe and healthy environment with opportunities for growth and community involvement. This is done through safe machinery and processes that guard against safety hazards, providing a clean environment, developing employees through mentoring, and our involvement in outside organizations. We also provide a comprehensive benefits program to ensure employee health and well-being. Our Oliver Cares program is a way for employees to get involved in and make a difference to the communities around us.
Oliver’s goal is to operate a profitable business and provide the tools necessary to keep Oliver competitive now and in the future. We achieve this through on-going, two-way communication between management and employees, strong ISO 13485 quality system and continuous improvement initiatives, and a structured risk management program. We also conduct supplier audits that test and evaluate all new materials so that we know our supplier's values match ours.
Oliver believes that sound environmental policies help protect our world’s resources, improve operational efficiency, provide better products, and serve the communities in which we live and work. We do this through maintaining a strong environmental management system, meeting and/or exceeding regulatory requirements (such as REACH, RoHS, CONEG, and TSCA), employing reduce/reuse/recycle/recover initiatives, reviewing carbon emissions, and implementing solutions to reduce our carbon footprint. We also offer customers packaging components that promote recycling. Additionally, Oliver is working to achieve "Landfill Free" status in all of our facilities.
