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 as well as to ensure continued success in regards to our ISO 14001 certification.

Bio-Clear

Manufactured using a plant-based plasticizer, Bio-Clear is the only sustainable static cling on the market, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional petroleum-based plasticizers.

Every 40,000 pounds of Bio-Clear produced in favor of traditional petroleum-based films, reduces our environmental footprint and reliance on fossil fuels by 1,625 gallons or 13,000 pounds.

Creating a static cling using a renewable resource has earned Bio-Clear recognition as a USDA Certified Biobased Product.

Certifications

We are proud to haveĀ achieved and maintained the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 certification and have implemented a policy and a vision to be recognized the world over for our commitment to excellence in meeting and exceeding environmental requirements around the world.
