ISO 14001 is a voluntary standard that provides a framework for environmental management. Lexmark-owned and leased facilities in Lexington, Kentucky; Boulder, Colorado; Budapest, Hungary; Cebu, Philippines; Juárez, Mexico; Shenzhen, China; the United Kingdom; Istanbul, Turkey; and the Netherlands have received ISO 14001 certification. These include all of our production locations and some research and development and administration facilities.
All facilities that do not hold ISO 14001 certification attest to standard conformance and adhere to the Lexmark Corporate Environmental, Health and Safety Instructions.
Each Lexmark facility sets site-specific goals for improving its performance within the environmental management system. Environmental goals include reducing energy consumption, improving water conservation, generating less waste, and improving emergency preparedness and response planning. Cross functional teams are established for each major manufacturing and development facility to support these efforts.
Lexmark did not incur any fines or non-monetary sanctions for noncompliance with environmental laws and regulations in the reporting period. No grievances about environmental impacts were filed through formal grievance mechanisms during the reporting period.
