Design for Environment

Your customers are looking to you for sustainable and responsible solutions. How are you leading the way?

As product- and region-specific environmental legislation such as Conflict Minerals and the RoHS Recast continues to emerge, OEMs and EMS providers must position themselves to gain market share and minimize risk.

Leading OEMs are innovating in order to reduce environmental impact.

Top executives are focused on understanding the carbon footprint of complex supply chains, and they are putting sustainability considerations front-and-center in product and process design.

Sustainability Checklist: Can You Say ‘Yes’ to these 5 Statements?

  • Sustainability plays a key role in your product lifecycle risk analysis.
  • Environmental compliance is a key consideration in due diligence when you’re selecting a contract manufacturer.

Creation Technologies is an Environmentally Responsible Leader

Responsible Business Operations
At Creation Technologies, we realized quickly that environmental protection legislation (such as the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances and RoHS Recast) presents us all with an opportunity to look ahead to the future and do our part in helping to make responsible decisions for our environment.

Creation began producing lead-free product in 2004, and today builds products that are RoHS-compliant, as well as compliant with many other product- and region-specific regulations for our customers.

Creation has ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certifications.

Our Compliance Assurance System encompasses manufacturing, materials and downstream supply chain controls, and is fully integrated within our quality system framework.

Environmental Services for Your Peace of Mind

In addition to rigorous systems to ensure you have complete peace of mind during the manufacturing process, we have also developed an industry-leading program to support our customers in their own transitions to green product.

Our thorough and thoughtful approach to the EU’s RoHS directive has provided us with the necessary infrastructure to support our customers as additional environmental directives and protection legislation such as REACH, the RoHS Recast and the Dodd-Frank Act’s Conflict Minerals continue to emerge worldwide.
