Executive Summary

This report helps EHS and product stewardship executives understand how their peers are leveraging EHS technologies at prominent multinational firms. FLIR Systems, a $1.9 billion-revenue US-headquartered industrial imaging and electronics manufacturing firm, identified the increasing EU regulations on waste, recycling, and circular economy as an opportunity to strengthen its product stewardship information management systems. Through partnership with Sphera’s EC4P software and managed services offerings, FLIR implemented 47 new recycling arrangements across 25 EU member states and achieved compliance against over 90 different waste recycling regulations. By consolidating materials and identifying easier-to-recycle products and packaging materials, FLIR was able to reduce costs for recycling while still increasing firm-wide visibility.
