Ökologische Nachhaltigkeit

Die Entwicklung von energieeffizienten Produkten ist ein Schlüsselelement unseres Bestrebens, Energie einzusparen und sich mit dem Klimawandel zu befassen. Um eine effiziente Handhabung der Ressourcen für den Umweltschutz sowie hohe Gesundheits-und Sicherheitsstandards zu gewährleisten, hat Infineon in allen weltweiten Produktionsstandorten ein Arbeitssicherheits-, Umwelt- und Gesundheitsschutz-Managementsystem etabliert, das seit dem Jahr 2005 nach ISO 14001 und OHSAS 18001 zertifiziert ist.

Für Infineon ist CSR mehr als nur die Erfüllung der gesetzlichen Anforderungen. Unser IMPRES (Infineon Integrated Management Program for Environment, Safety & Health) schafft die nutzbringende Verbindung zwischen der Verantwortung für Mensch und Umwelt mit dem wirtschaftlichen Erfolg und beinhaltet unser Bekenntnis zu einem effizienten Ressourcen-Management zum Schutz der Umwelt und für ökologische Innovation.

Effizientes Energiemanagement ist ein Hauptthema für die Einsparung von Energie und die Verringerung von Treibhausgasemissionen weltweit. Deshalb haben wir das Energiemanagementsystem in unser IMPRES integriert und arbeiten derzeit an der Zertifizierung im Rahmen einer Matrix gemäß ISO 50001.


Green Products

On 27.01.2003 the European Parliament and the council adopted the directives:
• 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment ("RoHS")
• 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electrical and Electronic Equipment ("WEEE")
Some of these restricted (lead) of recycling relevant (brominated flame retardants) are currently found in the terminations (e.g. lead finish, bumps, balls) and substrate materials or mould compounds.
The European Union has finalized the Directives. It's the member states' task, to convert these Directives into national laws. Most national laws are available, some member states have extended timelines for implementation. The laws arising from these Directives will come into force in 2006 or 2007 respectively.
The electro and electronic industry has to eliminate lead and other hazardous materials from their products. In addition, discussions are going on with regard to the separate recycling of ceratin materials, e.g. plastic containing brominated flame retardants.
For details please see our links to other WebPages.
Some of these restricted materials are currently found in the terminations (e.g. lead finish, bumps, balls) and substrate materials or mould compounds.

Infineon is fully committed to giving its customers maximum support in there efforts to convert to lead-free and halogen-free1) products. Hence,

Infineon's "Green Products" are ROHS compliant.

Since all the hazardous substances have been removed, Infineon calls its lead-free and halogen-free1) semiconductor packages "green product". Details on Infineon's definition and upper limits for the restricted materials can be found here.

The assembly process of our high-technology semiconductor chips is a integral part of our quality strategy. Accordingly we will truly evaluate and test the alternative materials in order to replace lead and halogen1) so that we end up with the same or higher quality standard of our products.

Halogen-free Products

Infineon Technologies continuously evaluates and considers possible effects on people and the environment at the earliest possible stage and takes specific measures to prevent hazards to people and the environment. Here Infineon acts according to the general principle that a foresighted estimate of long-term effects has to be preferred to a short-term advantage orientation. The principle of precaution must always be considered.



Infineon products defined as halogen-free meet the following requirements according to IEC 61249-2-21:
• <900 ppm Chlorine
• <900 ppm Bromine
• <1500 ppm total amount of Chlorine and Bromine
In addition all halogen-free products contain < 500 ppm of Antimony Trioxide
