Our culture guides our actions…

ESI is committed to developing and implementing techniques that improve the environmental footprint within our own facilities.

We established the ESI ‘sustainability council’ to evaluate and drive initiatives for environmental footprint improvements in our facilities. As a result, we are working on multiple projects to reduce energy consumption, water usage and waste generation as well as recycling of packaging materials.
