ModusLink Publishes New GRI-Based Corporate Social Responsibility Report
WALTHAM, Mass. -- December 31, 2013
ModusLink Global Solutions^™ Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNK) today announced publication
of its newest Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report for fiscal year
2013. This report has been certified by the Global Reporting Initiative™ as
having fulfilled all disclosures and requirements of Application Level C and
is the second bi-annual report the Company has issued.
“We know that it isn’t enough to just talk about environmental stewardship,
resource sustainability, labor standards and ethics in business,” said Scott
Crawley, president of Global Operations at ModusLink. “These principles of
responsible corporate action must be built into all of our systems and
processes and in fact, our supply chain and logistics services very often help
improve our clients’ sustainability efforts, as well.”
This newest report provides ModusLink’s stakeholders with details on goals and
measurable results in the areas of waste and water management, energy
consumption, conflict minerals and human resources, among others. Between the
reporting periods of fiscal 2011 and 2013, ModusLink reduced energy and
greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and total waste volumes across its
global network of Solution Centers. The overall rate of recycling
corporate-wide improved from 65 percent to 73 percent.
ModusLink’s CSR goals and actions are closely tied to those of its clients and
the Company works in conjunction with some of the leading enterprises in the
world—particularly in the high-tech and consumer electronics industries— to
advance rigorous standards. The Company has worked with the Global Reporting
Initiative to ensure the report follows industry standards in disclosure.
