Environmental Policy

Tilgin is devoted to minimizing environmental impact in all our activities from design to production, as well as during the product lifecycle. This means that we:

  • Design our products for low power consumption and avoid risk substances
  • Find logistic solutions that minimize environmental impact from the transport of products
  • Choose waste handling systems that facilitate reuse and recycling
  • Encourage our employees to use public transportation to and from work
  • Meet or exceed legal requirements in all countries where we are active
  • Always look for ways of improving our activities and products from an environmental perspective

Tilgin complies to the requirements of applicable environmental legislation and regulations, including the restriction of hazardous materials in our products.

RoHS Compliance Statement

Tilgin is committed to fully comply with the RoHS Directive, the European Union Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (“RoHS”) Directive (2002/95/EC), effective as per July 1, 2006. Specific details of each product’s transition to RoHS compliance can be obtained through your Tilgin Sales Manager/Distributor.

WEEE Compliance Statement

The European Union adopted Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), with requirements that went into effect August 13, 2005. WEEE is intended to reduce the disposal of waste from electrical and electronic equipment by establishing guidelines for prevention, reuse, recycling and recovery.

Tilgin has already modified its practices and processes to conform to the requirements in this important directive.

The symbols below indicate that the Tilgin products should be reused or recycled and not simply discarded. Ensuring that this product is disposed of correctly will help prevent potential negative consequences for human health and the environment, something that could otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste handling of this product.
