Environmental Responsibility

Reducing the Environmental Impact of Our Operations

We're committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations through energy efficiency, waste reduction, and resource conservation. Our dedicated team of environmental, health, and safety experts and facility managers works closely with individual sites to manage environmental risk. Our precautionary approach is based on a risk assessment process that identifies, assesses, and mitigates environmental risk throughout our operations and supply chain. In the U.S. and Sweden, we have environmental management systems registered to ISO 14001, and are considering additional registrations worldwide.

Seeing Our Buildings in a New Light

The Infinera Green Team is proactive in introducing energy-efficient solutions to our work environment, such as our participation in the PG&E Whole Building Energy Efficiency Program. Our existing buildings are constructed to older, less energy-efficient standards, so our dedication to this program is a significant commitment, but existing buildings represent the greatest opportunity today for energy use improvements, and we are excited to be at the forefront of this effort.

Projects planned include new building control technology, use of free cooling, new LED lighting, installation of variable frequency drives, use of hot aisle/cold aisle techniques, and other mechanical and operational modifications. Once implemented, these measures will decrease carbon dioxide emissions, reduce energy use by 10% within the year, and deliver rapid payback from cost savings.
