RoHS Environmental Policy
Moving toward a Green Supply Chain
Protecting the environment has been one of Portwell’s top priorities and we’re continuously looking for ways to do so. We are committed to ensuring all suppliers follow appropriate environmental standards when manufacturing the devices they need for production which includes limiting lead pollution at all cost.
As part of this progressive initiative, Portwell has completely Lead-free products that follow the EU WEEE Directive for electrical equipment. This includes the restriction of Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyl (PBBs) and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PDBEs).
Portwell ROHS started in July, 2004, Portwell has involved in transiting to Lead-free is a massive effort with numerous challenges. They are aligned with various industry peers and suppliers to clarify standards and processes to eliminate lead. In fact, since May 2005, Portwell has been recognized by Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs , R.O.C. to be a proactive industry leader that was the first one with fully government funding to implement the cleaner production project among all our competitors, furthermore, working closely with industry consortia to go through WEEE and RoHS transformation. It is certainly sure that Portwell is not only having the best administration, R&D team and production process but also fastidious commitment to quality. In addition to that, the green supply chain has been built up at Portwell to come up with green product that can be met the qualification and requirement.
The availability of Lead-free product will begin in Q3, 2005 based on order requirements and material availability. Customers may consult their sales representatives if they have specific requirements.
