Our Suppliers and Sustainablity
Eaton goes above and beyond taking responsibility to protect the environment by asking our suppliers to do the same. Eaton is collaborating with packaging companies such as Kite and Pratt, who have positive environmental track records, to ensure that it is meeting environmental sustainability requirements. Eaton grades its packaging suppliers and requires environmental scorecards to verify that it is working with the most environmentally-friendly suppliers around the world. Eaton is ensuring that its suppliers are delivering packages from sustainable sources, through the enforcement of rigorous criteria outlined in detail in the corporate guidelines for packaging. For example, Eaton requires its suppliers use paper based packaging materials that are easily recycled and procured from forests that are managed in an ecologically sound and sustainable manner. This collaboration is reinforcing Eaton’s industry leadership in sustainability.
