Arrow Electronics' Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Report for 2015

At Arrow Electronics, we measure and track compliance with numerous quality and regulatory standards at our 46 warehouse and processing locations.

  • Thirty-four of our locations are certified as ISO 14001 compliant. The ISO 14000 environmental management standards exist to help organizations:
    • Minimize how their operations (processes, etc.) negatively affect the environment (i.e., cause adverse changes to air, water or land).
    • Comply with applicable laws, regulations and other environmentally oriented requirements.
    • Continually improve in the above.
  • Twenty-two of our locations are certified as OHSAS 18001 compliant. OHSAS 18000 is an international occupational health and safety management system specification.
  • Fifteen of our locations are certified as R2 compliant for responsible recycling. The R2 standard is a voluntary, marketbased mechanism for ensuring best practices, which would also provide essential information/assurance to prospective customers. The standard builds on an ISO-style, Plan-Do-Check-Act management system as a platform, and integrates environmental, health and safety management, media sanitization, export and disposal restrictions, chain-of-custody accountability and transportation controls.
  • Ten of our locations are certified as Recycling Industry Operating Standard (RIOS ®) compliant. RIOS provides a framework for a comprehensive, integrated management system that includes key operational and continual improvement elements for quality, environmental health and safety (QEH&S) performance for the recycling industry.
