Since 2015, Arrow has submitted annual responses to the CDP Climate Change questionnaire and intends to continue doing so to promote transparency, accountability, and awareness of our carbon footprint to our stakeholders. Our inaugural Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) Framework reporting is another step toward reducing our carbon footprint and providing more transparency in our practices and performance.

Arrow recognizes the environmental impacts of fuel consumption associated with business travel, and we have been taking actions to reduce our impacts. In EMEA, we have a fleet of over 1,500 company vehicles used for commuting. In the past two years, we have doubled the share of those company vehicles that are hybrids and electric cars.
Arrow takes a proactive approach to managing energy use for our controlled real estate footprint. We understand that taking actions to improve our energy efficiency and to augment our renewable energy usage benefit the local and global environment by decreasing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and conserving our use of natural resources.
Arrow is focused on the conservation of resources within its offices, facilities, and distribution centers globally. While not large waste generators, our offices have implemented waste reduction measures, including reducing the use of paper and plastics and purchasing recycled or biodegradable supplies when feasible.
