Our people

Our people matter, from employees to vendors to partners and customers. We identify six different areas where we can have a positive social impact: Employee relations, customer relations, community relations, human rights, supply chain management, and social impact.

Our people-oriented sustainability goals are focused on two key tenets:

  • Employee relations: Including fair wages, safe working conditions, training and development opportunities, diversity and inclusion opportunities, and employee engagement and satisfaction.
  • Customer relations: Ensuring our products and services are safe, reliable, and meet customers’ needs.

Our climate

Making sustainable choices is a top priority at Christie. Over 20 years ago, we formed a Christie Green Team to improve environmental performance and align with Ushio’s mission. We also began collecting environmental data at our North American facilities to improve environmental practices in our products, processes, procedures, and facilities. Since then, environmentally sustainable actions and landscaping have expanded to other sites globally.

To protect the environment, reduce environmental operating costs, and achieve continual improvement toward our 2030 goals, our current practices include engineering products with ECO-design to promote the development of green and super green products while continuing to provide market-leading value to our customers.

Our community

We proudly support the global communities where we live and work and the industries in which we do business.

To do this we create and support local events and programs for environmental and social causes. In 2023, we launched Christie Ignite to support young, or “next-gen,” industry talent through events, webinars, free courses, and networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities.
