NetApp Wins 2009 WRAP Award from California Integrated Waste Management Board
Sunnyvale, Calif.-Dec. 10,
2009- The California Integrated Waste Management Board
recently honored NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) with a 2009 WRAP award as
part of the Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP). The award
recognizes NetApp's corporate waste and recycling program and
achievements in minimizing environmental impact through the
conscientious use of products, activities, and services. This is
the third year in a row that NetApp received a WRAP award.
NetApp won the award primarily for
successfully reducing its impact on the local environment in 2008
by diverting more than 2.3 million pounds of materials from the
landfill. NetApp's robust building construction over the past year
also included recycling more than 1.8 million pounds of
construction debris-nearly half of all of NetApp's recycled
materials in 2008. These efforts not only reduced the amount of
material going to a landfill, but also saved the company the fees
to dispose of those materials.
"NetApp is honored to receive a 2009 WRAP
award," said Laura Pickering, vice president, Office of the CEO,
and environmental responsibility advocate at NetApp. "Environmental
responsibility is inherent to our DNA and is a key initiative for
our employees around the world. We appreciate being recognized by
the California Waste Management Board for a third straight year and
look forward to improving our results in the coming year."
NetApp's corporate waste-management program
is ISO 14001 certified and eliminates waste from landfills through
reducing consumption, reuse, and recycling. As a high-tech company,
NetApp focuses on e-waste, successfully diverting more than 98%
annually. In all, NetApp diverts more than 50% of all waste from
landfills by using recycled, biodegradable, and/or compostable
supplies throughout our offices and facilities. NetApp also has a
foam-densification process to reduce the large volume of packaging
WRAP provides an opportunity for California
businesses and nonprofit organizations to gain public recognition
for their outstanding waste-reduction efforts. WRAP also provides
businesses with examples of successful waste-reduction techniques,
which they may adopt as their own. All businesses and private
nonprofit organizations with California facilities are eligible for
the annual WRAP awards, which are judged by the California
Integrated Waste Management Board. For more information, visit
