Achilles USA is committed to producing high-quality products for our customers in an economically, safe, and environmentally responsible manner. While our products benefit people worldwide, being keenly aware of the environmental footprint we leave is a vital business practice of ours. This awareness plays a key role in our continued efforts to ensure the safety of our workforce, our community and the sustainability of our resources.

We ensure a cleaner environment by:

  • Reducing the amount of energy our organization consumes
  • Reducing the amount of our air emissions that our manufacturing processes create
  • Reducing, reusing and recycling solid waste
  • Exceeding all requirements involving the management of storm water
  • Working closely with local, state, and federal agencies to exceed our environmental requirements
  • Implementing new technologies and new best management practices to improve our environmental footprint
  • Continually training (500 man hours in 2011) all employees on environmental responsibility both during new employee orientation as well as annual refresher training
  • Setting clearly defined environmental objectives, targets, and goals to ensure that our manufacturing processes do not create a negative environmental impact
  • Conducting regular third party audits to ensure continued compliance with local, state and federal agencies
