NeoPhotonics products enable telecommunications carriers and internet content providers (ICPs) to transport data all over the world while consuming less electrical power per bit. During the pandemic, our products have helped enable millions of people to work from home, further reducing energy and greenhouse gas emissions from travel to and from work.
For its research and manufacturing, NeoPhotonics operates sites in six different countries, with each site having programs that focus on energy use reduction, carbon footprint, water use and purification, and materials recycling. In addition, we have initiatives underway or completed that have improved energy efficiency of production equipment, installed LED lighting for power efficiency, replaced pumps and motors for higher efficiency, water minimization and purification, tree planning, recycling of hazardous materials including heavy metals, and ongoing work to improve yields, reduction of scrap for high value materials and packaging materials, and to consistently pursue added paths for recycling, carbon usage and protecting against climate change.
As a company, we recognize the potential hazards posed by electronic waste and in each location we ensure that all such waste is disposed of properly and incompliance with applicable regulations.
