Throughout company facilities and the entire product life cycle, National Instruments 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.
NI looks for opportunities to improve product development and manufacturing processes, including packaging design.
NI conserves resources through its facilities and IT infrastructure by reducing energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and waste, as well as increasing recycling.

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