Teradyne Environmental Policy
We conduct process design, assembly, marketing, repair and servicing of test equipment from new product conception through mature production.
We recognize that business activities impact the environment. Teradyne is committed to managing activities that could potentially impact the environment in a responsible and effective manner.
We continually strive to improve our environmental performance, consistent with other business objectives, and regularly set documented objectives, and target and monitor progress in achieving them.
In working towards minimizing environmental impacts associated with our activities, we:
- at a minimum, seek to comply with applicable environmental regulations and standards.
- support pollution prevention and minimization programs.
- use materials and energy efficiently to conserve natural resources.
- work to minimize, where feasible, emissions that contribute to climate change.
- review environmental objectives and monitor performance.
This policy is communicated to all employees and to those working on behalf of Teradyne and is made available to the public.
Energy Management and Greenhouse Gases
Teradyne continuously monitors risks and opportunity factors in the field of sustainability management, such as global policies and regulation trends that impact the business environment. Part of this involves reducing our climate footprint. We continually assess the environmental impact of our operations. Primary areas of focus have been to reduce consumption of electricity, gas and water and to explore sustainability energy opportunities.

Environmental and Safety Management (ISO 14001)
Teradyne has had a dedicated Environmental and Safety Management System (ESMS) since the early 1990s. This system has expanded over the years and contributed to our ability to easily transition to ISO 14001 certification at our U.S. headquarters in North Reading, Massachusetts as well as our facilities in Heredia, Costa Rica and Kumamoto, Japan. We maintain a documented ESMS at all of our offices. Our ISO 14001 system serves as the framework for our sustainability initiatives.
