Our industry. Our communities. Our world. We don’t take the responsibility we have as a gaming manufacturer to respect our environment lightly. To support our efforts, we have a number of company-wide programs in place to protect the environment.
We currently have recycling partners in place for industrial material used in the manufacture of our products, including cardboard, electronics, pallets, batteries, packaging materials, and metals, as well as consumer paper, plastics and aluminum in all of our facilities.
On average, in our Games business, we redeploy 18-25% of piece parts and electronic gaming machines each fiscal quarter.
And with 14 corporate and production facilities worldwide, we are committed to improving our use of electricity and water to drive down overall usage through efficient technologies including motion activated lights and faucets, low flow toilets, and water filtration systems in most of our 14 facilities, with plans to implement these technologies in all of our North American facilities by the end of 2022.
We implemented recording and reporting protocols at our corporate headquarters and other office and manufacturing locations in order to monitor our environmental impact at those locations and commence our progress towards setting long-term sustainability targets. The metrics measured in 2019 included water and electric energy use at more than 50% of our North American leased office facilities.
