Upholding Corporate Responsibility
We pledge our corporate responsibility to global sustainability by improving the economic, social and environmental impacts of our day-to-day operations. We do so by delivering photonic products and solutions that enhance quality of life, protect the environment, and uphold our company values. These values include integrity; customer-focused service; dedication to continuous improvement; transparency, communication and collaboration; and organizational agility to respond swiftly to an ever-changing world.
Excelitas has a variety of core principles that guide how we view our corporate responsibility, community involvement and environmental impact.
Giving Back to the Community
Excelitas has employed a robust volunteer program called “Excelitas Service Day,” created to afford each employee time to reflect on the needs of others and to go out into our local communities and give back with the gifts of time, talent, and labor.
Ensuring a Sustainable Future
Excelitas is committed to operating in a sustainable manner with respect for the environment, our employees, our business partners and the communities in which we operate around the world. Our commitment to minimizing our environmental impact is visible through a variety of programs in product sustainability, supply chain, quality compliance standards, and corporate carbon footprint.
One of our driving goals is to enable a wide range of eco-friendly technologies and applications to help our customers ensure a more sustainable future. We further innovate and manufacture a wide range of environmentally conscious photonic products to serve these applications with improved energy efficiencies, cleaner manufacturing processes, longer service life and thus reduced waste.
Striving for Excellence
Excelitas is committed to excellence in all aspects of the business, which requires a high level of social responsibility to our customers, business partners, suppliers and employees. We provide a safe and environmentally responsible workplace while maintaining a continuous improvement philosophy, which is embedded into our corporate culture and shared among our 7,500 employees worldwide.
Ensuring Business Ethics
We are committed to providing competitive compensation and benefit programs in each of the countries in which we operate to allow us to attract, motivate, and retain a world-class team. We support and endorse employee betterment and learning through various programs, as well as regularly train our workforce and reinforce the importance of ethical business practices.
