"I am proud to share the progress of our Environmental, Social and Governance journey in this 2022 ESG Report. We have made significant strides that are likely to exceed our stated objectives in 2020 to reduce our overall environmental impact by 30% from 2020 to 2025. In 2022 alone, while our facilities were working full-time to meet customer demand, in the U.S. we reduced our carbon footprint by 29% per person. In addition, we reduced our water consumption by 55% over the prior year and we increased the amount of renewable energy to 32% of the electrical power we used. We also believe that our company functions more efficiently when opportunities are equitable for everyone and that our local communities should be supported using a portion of our resources." - Mike Plisinski, CEO
Onto Innovation affirmed its commitments toward environmental, social, governance and sustainable business practices by becoming a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) in 2021. By doing so, we pledged support for this non-profit organization that encompasses the world's largest corporate social responsibility coalition in the global supply chain. Onto Innovation aims to improve the well-being of its workers and associated communities. The business world is complex, competitive, and challenging. Among the challenges we all have to face is the increasing expectations of consumers, customers, governments, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders relating to environmental, social and ethical considerations.
