Environment

Our goal is to lead the world in precision power conversion and to improve lives. In every aspect of our business, we strive to be a positive force for our employees and in our communities, while conserving resources to minimize any negative impact on the environment and the planet.

Corporate Commitment

Advanced Energy is committed to reducing our impact on the environment by (i) improving the energy efficiency of our products, (ii) reducing waste in our operations, and (iii) conserving natural resources, including materials, energy and water, all in a business responsible manner that drives long-term sustainability.

In support of this commitment, we drive operational excellence across the entire enterprise to eliminate waste and improve efficiency in all aspects of our business. Where possible, we track our progress on reducing our environmental impact and work collaboratively with our customers, suppliers, and the communities on such initiatives.

Energy-Efficient Products

As a manufacturer of power conversion products, our product efficiency success has a direct and beneficial impact on customer power-use reduction. Our dedicated R&D teams continuously strive to improve power conversion efficiency. Dependent on the product line, we have demonstrated up to 98% efficiency with 50% load. Every efficiency percentage point reduces our customers’ needs for power. This lessens the environmental impact and reduces carbon emissions, depending on the power source.

We've created advanced architectures for powering LED-based horticultural lighting solutions that lower the total cost of energy for indoor farming applications. Learn more

Many of our products also received Energy Efficiency Declarations

Energy-Efficient Operations

Advanced Energy strives to lower our energy usage in our global factories. Our factory in Malaysia generates nearly all required electrical power from renewable sources, and our Philippines factory, a 2018 Outstanding Environmental Performance Award recipient, employs novel alternatives to reduce the need for thermal testing.

From 2015 to 2018, our Artesyn Embedded Power factories in China and the Philippines reduced annual purchased energy consumption by 38%, saving 39,776.47 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions. Additionally, our factories in China and the Philippines monitor GHG emissions and report to the CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) annually. Read our CDP submission and our score report. In the report, we received a grade of B, which is better than the North American average.

Recycling

Advanced Energy is committed to recycling the waste generated from our business activities as much as economically feasible. Our facility in Vancouver, Washington was recently recognized and certified as a Clark County Green Business for our efforts to conserve resources and improve recycling practices. 

As part of our commitment to help the industry embrace sustainability and increase recycling, Advanced Energy is one of the six launching key suppliers on Applied Materials’ SuCCESS2030 initiative to work towards a more sustainable supply chain. Learn more
