PulseCore Meets Canon's Green Procurement Standards

July 2, 2008
Company's lead-free, halogen-free integrated circuits now certified under Canon's green guidelines.

PulseCore Semiconductor said today it has been certified by Canon Group as meeting the company's Green Procurement Standards. Received earlier this month, the Canon "Certificate of Green Activity" demonstrates that PulseCore has "satisfied the environmental management activity required by Canon Green Procurement Standards."

The global imaging and technology company's Green Procurement program outlines guidelines that vendors must follow in order to provide parts and materials. Canon aims to procure products that minimize the use or generation of hazardous substances and that maximize environmental conservation, and vendors are scored on "Green" issues during the procurement process to ensure only responsible environmental friendly materials are sourced and used.

"Environmental concerns around the world have generated significant interest and demand for 'green' integrated circuits, and it is a point of pride that a global technology leader and customer like Canon has validated PulseCore's environmental approach," said PulseCore CEO Mike Hogan.

According to the release, PulseCore's integrated circuits are lead-free, halogen-free, and fully compliant with the RoHS Directive, which restricts use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The company has established a worldwide environmental management system and several of its programs focus on how to further reduce the use of hazardous substances, chemicals and/or emissions.
