It is the policy of McGard to minimize, to the extent feasible, the environmental impacts of our activities, products and services. In our commitment to protecting and preserving the environment, we also intend to comply with all applicable Federal, State and local environmental regulations and other requirements which relate to our environmental aspects.
McGard plans to identify and implement controls and practices to continually improve our Environmental Management System through our objectives and targets. McGard seeks the help of all persons working for or on its behalf to achieve the program goals and commit to the prevention of pollution.
Group Conflict Mineral Policy
We are taking steps to develop and implement a policy prohibiting use of tantalum, tin, gold, tungsten, or their derivatives, whose extraction or trade supports conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries, and/or contributes to inhuman treatment, including human trafficking, slavery, forced labor, child labor, torture and war crimes in the region.
Our efforts are not intended at altogether banning procurement of minerals from the DRC and adjoining countries, but to assure sourcing from responsible sources in the region.
We ask our suppliers to cooperate with us in our efforts to assure procurement of non-conflict minerals.
McGard has made significant investments to protect the environment with its modern Process Water and Waste Water Treatment Systems.

McGard’s Environmental Management System is in conformance to ISO 14001:2015. Waste water minimization and off-site recovery of metals allows McGard to limit the amount of waste going to landfill, while continually striving to reach our goal of zero impact on the environment.
