We work to minimize environmental impact in our supply chain

At Motorola Solutions, we recognize that our responsibility to the environment extends past our operations. We actively engage our suppliers on environmental issues aligned with our goals.

Environmental responsibility in our supply chain

Our suppliers have a key role in helping us to achieve our environmental goals. We aim to work collaboratively across our supply chain to embed sustainable practices in the development of our products. We require annual feedback on environmental performance from our suppliers to ensure they continue to align to our goals and values.

Green procurement

Green procurement

We have a global procurement policy which outlines guidelines for prioritizing suppliers who are active in reducing environmental impacts, including factors such as greenhouse gas emissions, waste production, energy efficiency, and water use.

Supplier environmental requirements

As part of our value chain, our suppliers’ activities contribute to our overall carbon footprint and environmental impact. Therefore, suppliers are required to establish Environmental Impact Reduction Plans which align with Motorola Solutions’ goals and also to report regularly on the status as it relates to Motorola Solutions’ operations per our supplier code of conduct.

Controlled and reportable materials disclosure

The W18 specification sets materials disclosure requirements and acceptance criteria for items and materials used in the manufacture and delivery of products to our customers.

Reference list of substances

We expect that suppliers understand the substance regulations around the world; know the substances of concern in the items they manufacture; have processes to control these in their supply chains; and verify this through reporting. Refer to the reference list for help identifying these substances.
