Environmental policies & practices @ IBM Research – Zurich
In 1997, IBM became the world’s first major multinational to have earned a single worldwide registration to the ISO 14001 EMS. Since then, IBM has expanded its global ISO 14001 registration to include its chemicals-using research locations as well as its non-manufacturing locations.
The Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Center, a joint collaboration with ETH Zurich, continues IBM’s tradition of environmental awareness.
