Our Promise

Everything we do during our time on this planet impacts future generations. And that includes how we use our resources — particularly water. At CFG, we realize the importance of both water conservation and waste reduction. That's why for the last quarter-century we've been working on programs to protect the environment and further our long-standing commitment, resulting in industry-leading sustainable practices.

Our Commitment

At CFG, we're committed to designing and producing water-efficient products, without sacrificing performance, which will make a big impact on the environment. We know that every drop matters and the importance of both water conservation and waste reduction. We will continue to raise the bar in this global initiative and further our commitment to preserving our environment.

Doing Our Part

Conservation and Recycling Efforts

Recycling Materials Recycling

CFG recycles more than 90% of all metal, scrap, return product and manufacturing by-product (oils and solvents). In addition, all glass, toner and printer cartridges, cardboard, plastic bottles and aluminum cans are recycled in our facilities.

Reduce Water Consumption Water Usage

CFG has reduced water consumption by reusing 70% of all water used in product testing. We've also installed water filtration systems in all of our facilities to reduce plastic bottle consumption and waste.

Recycling Paper and Packaging Paper and Packaging

We have recycled more than 7 million pounds of cardboard, 16 million pounds of metal, and 4 million pounds of solid waste. Our packaging uses water-based inks and is made of recyclable materials. Even doing the little things — like setting our printers to default to 2-sided printing — has significantly lowered our paper use.
