Mouser Electronics has won a prestigious e-Legacy Award for 'Contribution to Sustainability.' The e-Legacy awards are an annual event organized by Electronic Product Design, one of the UK's leading electronics' design magazines. The winners, announced recently in London, are voted for by the magazine's readers.
The Contribution to Sustainability Award encourages the sustainability of the Earth’s resources and is awarded to a company program that encourages the sustainability of electronics and electronics manufacturing and raw materials. Along with Mouser’s zero waste philosophy of requiring no minimum orders and flagging products NRND (not recommended for new design) to advance longer shelf life, Mouser is committed to diligently addressing the environmental issues that face the electronics industry and their customers both domestically and globally. The global distributor’s environmental program encompasses Lead-Free, RoHS, WEEE, Packaging Waste, and proper disposal of Batteries and Chemicals. This forward-thinking approach was among the reasons for the award.
“We are delighted to win this award,” states Mark Burr-Lonnon, Mouser’s Vice President of EMEA and APAC Business. “Our philosophy is to provide design engineers with access to the latest technology, and corporate sustainability is an important and growing area where innovative solutions are always welcome. We thank the publishers and readers of Electronic Product Design for this award.”
