Diodes Incorporated won the Environmental Award at the annual Elektra Awards held in Munich on the eve of Electronica 2008. Now in their sixth year, the Elektra Awards are regarded as the most prestigious electronic product, technology and business awards in Europe and recognise the achievements of individuals and companies throughout the European Electronics industry.
/> For the Environmental Award category, Elektra invited companies to demonstrate how their business strategies are reducing the impact on the environment of their products, manufacturing process and commercial practices. The 20-strong independent panel of judges also looked for evidence of how good environmental practice has permeated across the company by being inclusive of staff at all levels of the organisation.

Receiving the award on behalf of Diodes Incorporated, European President Colin Greene said, “We’re thrilled to receive this award as it really does recognise the incredible efforts of our Green Team, a volunteer group of employees, representative of the entire organisation, with a real passion to see environmental objectives achieved.”

“Diodes Incorporated believes that one of the most important ways to achieve environmental recovery and sustainability is through the continuous drive of its people to improve the business’s environmental performance. Through workforce engagement and ‘buy-in’ to this vision, Diodes believes it is achieving ‘world class’ environmental performance.”

Diodes’ Elektra win follows hot on the heels of another award, the National Microelectronics Institute’s Low Power “Green” Design Award for 2008. The award was made to Diodes for its ZXGD3101T8 MOSFET rectifier controller. The first in a new family of products, it enables external power adapter designers to replace lossy Schottky diodes with surface mount MOSFETs to achieve higher efficiency, less heat generation, a reduction in adapter size and weight and a simplification of overall circuit design.
