Environmental Commitment

Environmental Commitment

CareDx respects the value and fragility of the environment and continuously looks for ways to minimize our impact. Our main buildings headquartered in California are energy efficiency certified and meet stringent San Francisco Bay Area requirements for environmental impact. Several of our offices are in new energy efficient buildings. We take additional measures to conserve energy through LED fixtures, light timers/sensors, and thermostat regulation. Additionally, our offices provide recycling and use low flow fixtures to conserve water.

In 2021, there were no incidents of non-compliance to environmental laws and regulations.

A sound corporate governance is an essential part of CareDx’s management and operations. The Board of Directors sets high standards for employees, officers, and directors. It is the duty of the Board of Directors to serve as a prudent fiduciary for shareholders and to oversee the management of CareDx’s business. To fulfill its responsibilities and to discharge its duty, the Board of Directors follows the procedures and standards that are set forth in the governance guidelines. These guidelines are subject to modification from time to time as the Board of Directors deems appropriate in the best interests of the Company or as required by applicable laws and regulations.
