Our commitment to sustainability in the electronics industry

For a global science and technology company like us, sustainability is an essential component of our Group strategy. We want to be economically successful and create long-term added value for society.

The PFAS challenge

PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are essential chemicals in today’s electronics manufacturing processes. PFAS pose a serious dilemma for the electronics industry as emerging global regulations are trending towards restricting the use of PFAS in the future.  

We recognize the undesirable impact PFAS have on the environment and humans and we anticipate the change of regulations worldwide regarding PFAS. Therefore, we are taking a proactive approach and are committed to looking for alternatives to PFAS.


We are committed to intensifying our R&D efforts to actively promote the PFAS-related substances replacement program. We will work with our customers and provide information throughout this process as a trusted partner in the Electronics industry. Our number one priority is still to ensure business continuity and we are passionate about continuously improving our products to ensure the highest performance and quality for our customers.

We are committed to ensuring sustainable supplies of our innovative products and are proud to be able to actively contribute to our customers’ success.
