LIFE CYCLE INFORMATION

lemo life cycle

LEMO aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment.

LEMO integrates environmental issues into the production of our connectors and cabling solutions. For this purpose, LEMO has adopted a life cycle analysis and eco-conception approach to monitor and reduce the global environmental footprint of LEMO and its product-related impacts.

This global approach allowed us to identify the main axes that dominate our environmental footprint (purchasing, electricity consumption, transport) and to implement action plans to continually reduce it.

Considering the growing environmental concern worldwide, LEMO strives to reduce the environmental impact of our packaging, whilst ensuring the protection of our products effectively. LEMO promotes recycling by proposing recyclable packaging.

Most connector components can be recycled. LEMO’s design of plugs and free sockets allows easy disassembly to separate and recycle the various components. We rely on our customers to correctly recycle and reintroduce (reuse) end-of-life materials (metals, plastics, precious metals) into a new life cycle.
