Minimize Our Environmental Impact

Throughout company facilities and the entire product life cycle, NI works toward a long-term goal to minimize its environmental footprint. This commitment includes optimizing product development and manufacturing processes, setting expectations with suppliers, recycling end-of-life NI products, and finding ways to conserve resources such as water and electricity.

"The NI supplier program is an excellent example of corporate responsibility. Following NI’s lead, we have implemented similar programs such as a supplier code of conduct as well as employee philanthropy and volunteerism programs. We have seen success with these programs at headquarters as well as in our Hungary and Malaysia offices."
