Enviroment Policy

As a world leading technology innovator, Aras Power Technologies actively strives to provide its customers with high quality solutions that offer reduced power consumption, smaller size and greater energy efficiency while making a conscious effort to reduce each products' overall environmental impact by eliminating or minimizing the use of hazardous chemicals.

Aras Power Technologies leverages today's most advanced power supply topologies to provide significant environmental benefits over competitive solutions by enabling lower power consumption, smaller size and longer lifetimes. Additionally, Aras actively supports industry initiatives to remove lead (Pb) and other hazardous materials from all its products.

Environmental Management System (EMS) Policy

Aras Power Technologies is committed to reducing its environmental impact while conserving natural resources. It is the company's policy to meet all applicable regulatory standards, including those in support of EPA and OSHA requirements.

Aras Power Technologies manages to:

  • Create a clean, healthy and safe work environment for employees, customers and the community
  • Comply with all applicable environmental, health and safety regulations, including EPA and OSHA standards for emissions, solid waste disposal, safe storage and handling of hazardous materials
  • Ensure that all products are manufactured without banned substances and are RoHS compliant

Environmentally Preferred Procurement and Waste Reduction

It is Aras Power Technologies policy to purchase and acquire goods and services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment. This comparison takes into consideration raw materials acquisition, production, manufacturing, packaging, distribution, reuse, operation, maintenance, disposal, energy efficiency, product performance, durability, safety and cost.

It is also the company's goal to minimize waste, maximize recycling efforts, reduce consumption, and ensure that products and materials are reused, repaired or recycled. As a result, Aras minimizes energy consumption while supporting a healthy, productive and comfortable work environment. When feasible, the company purchases only ENERGY STAR compliant or other highly efficient equipment that offer best energy conservation features. When purchasing equipment, Aras evaluates a products overall environmental impact, and strives to reduce toxins that include end-of-life management and direct emissions.

RoHS/Lead Free

Aras supports the current industry initiatives to remove or reduce lead (Pb) and other potentially hazardous materials from all of its products. The company is committed to providing products that satisfy the industry directives and market demands to reduce the potential impact that electronic components have on human health and the environment.

For many years, Pb has been used in many aspects of electronic products and in the manufacturing of electronic products. Recent concerns about the health and environmental impact of Pb used in electronic products has prompted various industry and legislative initiatives targeted towards the reduction of Pb and other materials perceived to be potentially hazardous to human health and the environment. Although the amount of Pb typically used in electronic products is small, its use is pervasive throughout the electronic manufacturing process and the reduction or elimination of Pb has involved significant industry effort. As part of this effort, Aras has worked extensively with its suppliers and customers to develop cost-effective Pb-free product solutions that satisfy the all current industry initiatives and enable the low-risk integration of these solutions into customer end-products.
