Social and Environmental Management Statement

Enterprise Integration, Inc. (EII) has a commitment to social responsibility and the environment and is currently in the process of developing an Environmental Management System (EMS) that aims to ensure that all our business activities are conducted in a sustainable, environmentally efficient and socially responsible manner.

EII’s commitment encompasses governance and ethics, employee well-being, our customers, the environment, community citizenship and supply chain management.

Adhering to the highest standards of ethics is essential to the success of our business. EII’s Code of Conduct is designed to reflect these values.

EII is committed to investing in our employees and their well-being, while providing a safe work environment based upon ethical and humane employment practices.

Our commitment to our clients and candidates is to provide the highest level of management practices in order to achieve their specific objectives and surpass their expectations.

EII is committed to environmental sustainability and we strive to achieve and demonstrate efficient environmental performance in line with our environmental policy and objectives while reducing our impact on the environment. To effectively ensure our environmental performance meets legal and policy requirements, we have implemented a Social and Environment Management System and, while not ISO 14001 certified, our EMS is aligned with the ISO 14001 model.

EII is committed to being a good corporate citizen in all our business endeavors and in the communities in which we conduct business. We participate in local civic organizations, and we are committed to doing what is right for our employees, our community, our customers, our partners, and our country.

We have adopted the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct (CoC)  http://www.eicc.info/documents/EICCCodeofConductEnglish.pdf and have implemented a Supply Chain Management System, which promotes that our suppliers adopt ethical business practices aligned with our own sustainability values and the provisions outlined in the EICC Code of Conduct. The EICC Code of Conduct establishes standards to ensure that working conditions in the electronics industry supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity, and that business operations are environmentally responsible and conducted ethically. While we are not a part of the electronics industry, the principles are generic, and they can apply to any industry.  The EICC Code of Conduct outlines standards for Labor, Health and Safety, the Environment, Business Ethics and Management System.

EII’s Management Team ensures that our social and environmental principles and targets are met throughout the organization. Comments, questions and requests regarding EII’s sustainability can be directed to: SEM@eiisolutions.net

Environmental Policy

EII recognizes that environmental responsibility is integral to the sustainability and success of our business. In acting to protect the environment we uphold our values and reflect those of our employees and customers. We are a consulting business; therefore doing the right thing in the community is inherent in all that we do.

Our environmental policy is set by the Management Team who are responsible for ensuring the policy is adhered to and meets environmental objectives.

EII is committed to continual environmental improvement with objectives and targets laid out in our formal Environmental Management System (EMS). Our EMS ensures compliance with applicable legal requirements as well as those of our clients and the communities in which we operate.

We act to conserve resources and manage consumption of water, energy, office consumables and equipment. We are committed to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions produced as a result of our business activities and to waste management and recycling programs.

Environmental criteria are considered in the selection of suppliers and products, including our future choice of office buildings and services, to ensure compliance with our commitments and values.

This policy aims to ensure that everyone working for EII understands the importance of incorporating environmental consideration in their daily business activities where appropriate and is supported by relevant training. The policy is included in our employee handbook.

As part of our commitment to transparency and sustainability, this policy is available to the public via our corporate website.

Environmental Management System - Objectives and Progress

1. EII is currently in the planning stages of mapping our systemic approach to sustainability through development of an Environmental Management System (EMS). Our EMS will follow the Plan-Do-Check-Act model.

2. EII’s environmental objectives are specific, measured, and take into account short and long-term issues, require continuous improvement and are consistent with the environmental policy, taking into account legal compliance and other requirements. We are in the process of acquiring permanent office space in Huntsville, Alabama; and these objectives will apply to that decision. The objectives are set in relation to EII’s environmental awareness that will be included in our emerging Environmental Management System (EMS):

• Energy conservation

• Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions

• Waste management and recycling

These objectives reflect our commitment to reduce emissions, specifically scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions, which are the primary source of pollution generated as a result of our business activities. As a consulting company, EII does not cause Scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions. Our stated target for Scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions is zero emissions.

3. In order to establish accurate baseline measurements for usage in a 12 month period and set objectives to measure improvements in relation to our environmental impact, we have established a baseline period for energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions and waste management and recycling. The baseline period is defined as January 2014 to December 2014. The results obtained during the baseline period will relate to our Huntsville office (when established), which encompasses our entire infrastructure for global operations.

Energy Consumption

• Electric – Still in baseline period. Data not yet available

Scope 2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions

• Electric – Still in baseline period. Data not yet available

Waste management and Recycling

• Recycling volume – Still in baseline period. Data not yet available

• Waste volume – Still in baseline period. Data not yet available

*Baseline data will be available January 2015

4. Once the baseline data is established in regards to our environmental impacts above, we aim to establish the following environmental goals measured over a period of 12 months:

Energy consumption

o Reduce consumption of electricity 2% by year ending 2015

Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions

o Reduce scope 2 GHG emissions from electricity usage 2% by year ending 2015

Waste management and Recycling

o Reduce non-recyclable waste material 2% by year ending 2015

As the baseline is in the future, these goals are subject to change and will be amended, if necessary, January 2015.

5. The results associated with the above environmental targets and other environmental aspects from the management system, including any regulatory fines or penalties that may have occurred are as follows:

Results for the period January 2014 to December 2014:

Energy Consumption

• Electric – Results available January 2015

Scope 2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions

• Electric – Results available January 2015

Waste management and Recycling

• Recycling volume – Results available January 2015

• Waste volume – Results available January 2015

Other Environmental Aspects Including Regulatory Fines and Penalties

EII has not been subjected to any regulatory fines or penalties in regards to environmental matters or other environmental aspects. EII is committed to publishing this information, along with any other significant matters relating to environmental performance, as they occur.
