Ingram Micro collected annual data for FYs 2011 and 2012 but is not making that data public at this time. Last year, the company focused on internal alignment of our sustainability program with business strategy, including the completion of a materiality assessment with KPMG’s assistance.
We identified 6 material issues to our company which are:
- Ethics and Integrity
- Talent Attraction and Retention
- e-Waste and Reverse Logistics
- Environmental Impact
- Labor Practices
- Product Innovation and New Services
This year, we will be building the right infrastructure to support our ongoing sustainability performance and tracking, including the refinement of key performance indicators that support these material topics. Ingram Micro North America continues to inventory and track its carbon footprint. The latest emissions data is below.
||Emissions (metric tons of carbon equivalents--MTCE)
||30,252 without RECs; 29,214 with RECs
||31,954 without RECs; 30,870 with RECs*
*Ingram Micro purchased BrightPoint Inc. in 2012 which added a number of new facilities to the company's operations around the globe affecting the North America region’s overall carbon footprint.
Ingram Micro's 2011 social responsibility report was put on hold while the company implemented a global materiality assessment. Our 2011 greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory was completed with emissions that included a 9.7% reduction for the North America region since 2009. When combined with renewable energy credits (RECs) purchased for corporate headquarters in Santa Ana, Calif., this reduction increased by almost 3.5% for a total of 12.8% lowered emissions since 2009.
