Sustainability and/in Production
Nycote® currently uses some volatile organic compounds in manufacturing our products. However, Nycote’s production practices ensure all materials are properly measured and put to 100 percent use in making Nycote®, leaving no VOC environmental or industrial waste behind in our manufacturing process.
Further, Nycote® products conform to Dodd-Frank legislative requirements for the use of “conflict-free” minerals. None of the chemicals that go into producing Nycote® have been mined by participants in, nor financially benefit, violent conflicts around the globe.
Supply and Distribution Chain
Nycote® Laboratories Corporation serves as its own worldwide manufacturer and distributor and implements the highest quality in manufacturing and shipping. The company complies with numerous international standards and certifications, including compliance with International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) regulation of the transport of volatile goods, North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) standards and practices, and REACH legislation.
Green and Safe Facilities
Nycote® Laboratories Corp. participates in the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s (LADWP) “Small Business Direct Install” program. Older, less efficient lighting in our warehouse, offices, and manufacturing lab have been replaced with newer, safer, and more efficient lighting that will save our company money and cut down on the level of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGs) produced to power our daily business operations. Additional phases of LADWP’s program will allow for additional environmental efficiencies including insulation and water.
In addition, Nycote® has spearheaded efforts on our campus, and in common areas shared by other property business entities, to remove turf to save water in our drought-stricken environment.
We also go to every length to keep our employees safe. We proactively reached out to work with CAL-OSHA’s Consulting Arm to identify areas where we could improve worker safety and consistently upgrade our work stations, equipment, and safety practices to prevent employee injury and illness.
