We extend our environmental commitment by encouraging our associates to be aware of the environment in their business activities and to participate in volunteer and community efforts that
improve the local environment. On an annual basis, for example, Allegro participates in the international celebration of Earth Day. As part of this event, associates and their family members are invited to assist in clean-up activities in the local neighborhood. This activity improves the local environment and increases awareness of our environmental responsibilities.
On an ongoing basis, Allegro supports fossil fuel conservation through a ride-sharing program. In this effort, Allegro assists associates in connecting with carpools and provides preferred parking spots and other incentives to carpoolers. In addition, we conserve resources through an organization-wide recycling program for many types of items including paper, cardboard, ink and toner cartridges, bottles/cans/food containers, batteries, pallets, metal items, chemical containers, pump oil, thermocouples, computers, fluorescent lamps, wafers, and scrap devices.
Our business success is dependent on our ability to develop trusting relationships with our customers, associates, shareholders, suppliers and neighbors. One key responsibility is ensuring our
