In the unlikely event of a product failure, most Hirschmann™ products can be repaired instead of a total exchange. All products are covered by WEEE and we ensure that all our packaging is fully recyclable.
Hirschmann™ only uses materials that meet – or exceed – legal regulations and the specific needs of our customers. During the product development phase, we always consider the ecological impact of our products. This includes their performance according to REACH, RoHS.
We minimize our environmental impact further by using professional development tools and integrated R&D processes. The Hirschmann™ R&D facility uses the latest specialized test equipment and simulation tools, so we can avoid costly and unnecessary transport, production and redesign costs during product development, whilst at the same time reducing our carbon footprint.
In the early stages of product development, we look at ecological aspects such as energy and resource consumption as well as the product‘s future disposal. We set out to constantly reduce the energy consumption of our products. To achieve this we use the latest innovations such as new chip technology, thus creating more efficient devices, saving on energy consumption, whilst at the same time offering enhanced features.
By applying higher circuit integration density, our products are able to offer a greater degree of functionality per watt. Where possible we choose for low-energy design, and the development of re-usable modules. Our product portfolio shows a high innovation rate, so our customers benefit from our constant improvements at every new product release.
