Environment

Exxelia Group is committed to applying a robust environmental policy, from product design through to shipment.

To control its environmental footprint and reconcile this with the company’ functional imperatives, Exxelia Group’s environmental policy provides for the reduction or elimination of hazardous substances.

We also focus on compliance with European Union directives and regulations, notably REACH and RoHS:

  • the main goals of REACH (Registration Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals), a European regulation that entered force on June 1 2007, are to ensure the protection of human health and the environment against risks liable to be created by the presence of chemicals;
  • RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)is a European directive in force since July 1 2006, the purpose of which is to eliminate lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and flame retarders from specific electrical and electronic equipment marketed in Europe.

Exxelia Group is consequently responsible for assessing and managing these risks and supplying appropriate safety information to both its own workforce and its customers. Exxelia Group constantly monitors the evolution of these standards, regulations and directives, and applies them every day to our manufacturing processes.
