Our commitment to the environment
Avocent is committed to operating in a manner that is compatible with
our environment and is good for our communities, our employees, and our
customers. We are working with our partners and suppliers to build
systems, processes and structures to minimize the social and
environmental impact of our design, manufacturing, and operating
Additionally, Avocent and our suppliers are developing a plan that will
adhere to national and other applicable laws and regulations governing
protection of the environment, worker health and safety, and employment
practice wherever we and they do business. We will also develop a plan
to establish management systems (policies, plans and performance
measures) that are designed to implement these requirements, and ensure
ongoing compliance with them.
Avocent Corporation is also committed to eliminating environmentally
hazardous substances from our products as defined in the current EU’s
RoHS Directive. Avocent top management is firmly committed to this
task, and has established a special action team to ensure compliance in
a complete and timely manner of which this writer is also a member.
The RoHS Directive restricts the use of certain substances (lead,
mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and two flame retardants - PBB
and PBDE) in electrical and electronic products sold in the European
Union after July 1, 2006, and Avocent intends to be fully compliant as
of that date.
