Melexis Environmental Program
Environmental diligence is an integral part of the Melexis policy. This is based on four disciplines:
Sustainable development – development of products and processes that have a minimum effect on the quality environment today and in the future
Prevention is better than cure – prevention is of utmost importance
The total effect of the environment counts – embodied in the development of products whose production (including energy use), operation and disposal at end-of-live have minimum adverse effects on the environment
Open contact with authorities and customers
Commitment to this four principles leads to specific objectives and targets and to the allocation of capacity. Programmes and progress are reviewed annually.
