Environmental Policy

Oxford Instruments is a leading provider of high technology products and services to the world’s leading industrial companies and scientific community. Our products support our customers to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges, accelerating the transition to a greener, healthier, and more connected advanced society. Whilst we are proud to be recognised as the leaders in what we do and for the positive impact our products make in the world we understand the need to minimise our own environmental footprint. Over recent years through our focused efforts and the positive engagement of our employees we have made excellent progress in significantly reducing the CO2 emissions and waste products from our manufacturing sites, facilities, and activities (so called scope 1 & 2). It is now time to expand our goals to include the environmental impact of our broader activities to include our supply chain and the usage of our products by our customers (scope 3). As part of this process, we are reviewing our environmental policy, setting new ambitious, intermediate goals on our route to achieve net zero.

This Policy will be implemented at all sites around the world and commits the Group to achieving net zero emissions through significantly reducing our environmental footprint and the continuous monitoring - and improvement - of our activities that contribute to climate change. Our strategy will include continued energy savings and efficient energy usage, the choice of our supply chain partners as well as the adoption of new technologies and systems as they become available.


All Oxford Instruments businesses and sites will adopt the following overarching objectives as appropriate:

This Policy applies to all employees. Senior Management is responsible for implementation.
