Tyco EHS Practices  
As a global leader in environmental, health and safety protection,
Tyco practices the following three foundational initiatives for all
beneficiaries of its products and services: 

--  Energy reduction - Tyco designs resource-conserving devices and
    processes for retailers, while keeping Tyco's operations and
    facilities efficient, and using renewable energy sources where
    possible. Tyco's solutions, including American Dynamics branded video
    solutions and Sensormatic branded Electronic Article Surveillance
    (EAS) systems, traffic counting sensors and RFID-based inventory
    visibility readers are designed to minimize environmental impact
    system-wide, without compromising efficiency, performance or security.
    The latest generation of Sensormatic EAS systems delivers wide exit
    coverage and equivalent system sensitivity, while consuming 50% less
    power with energy consumption reduced even further in "Power Save"
--  Materials/packaging reduction - Tyco conserves materials by reducing,
    reusing and recycling product and packaging components. For example,
    its latest EAS systems utilize 35% less plastic and 25% less packaging
    than earlier designs.
--  Chemical/material management - All Sensormatic branded hardware is
    compliant with the European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances
    (RoHs) Directive. Tyco's genuine Sensormatic labels meet all
    environmental standards governing their material and chemical content,
    using preferred "Green Chemistry" materials that have less
    environmental impact. Tyco's electronic products are certified by
    regulatory agencies in all countries in which they operate, in
    compliance with UL, CE, FCC and Directive 94/62/EC guidelines.
