Advanced Energy specializes in power conversion technologies. But our corporate citizenship and social responsibility extend beyond the products we make. We take giving back seriously. From financial contributions and employee volunteerism to diversity, fair working practices, and sustainability, Advanced Energy helps empower the communities we call home — and the world around us.
Our charitable contributions committee, founded in 2010, is supported and led by our employees. The committee provides financial support for 501(c)(3) corporations, non-profit institutions, and organizations that improve education, the environment, health, and social services across the communities we operate in.
Advanced Energy offers each employee eight hours of paid time off to volunteer with a 501(c)(3) organization of the employee’s choosing. See us in action:
- Donating masks for frontline workers

A Diverse, Global Workforce
We have 10,900-plus employees located across the globe. Each person's background and unique skill set are fundamental to our success.
Advanced Energy helps facilitate innovative research projects, participates in local chambers of commerce, and works with local non-profit organizations. We also partner with multiple academic institutions and invest resources and funds to advance energy-efficient and renewable energy technologies, drive global impact, and shape tomorrow’s leaders in power conversion and control.
Advanced Energy is dedicated to reducing the impact procurement activities and supply chain have on the planet – whether that impact is on human rights, the environment, or any other area of corporate social responsibility. An area of particular concern is that of conflict minerals, the mining of which supports armed conflict or risks of human abuses, such as slavery and child labor.

Responsible Business Alliance
Advanced Energy commits to the standards of the Responsible Business Alliance Code of Conduct. The code promotes labor, health and safety, environment, and ethics best practices.
Ethical Business Practices
- Human Rights. Respecting the human rights of our employees and those involved in our business operations is a core principle for Advanced Energy. Our Code of Conduct, which also applies to our suppliers, specifically prohibits activities involving slave or forced labor, human trafficking, and child labor.
- Supply Chain. We are committed to sustainable and responsible sourcing of the materials. We audit our suppliers to confirm (where possible) that minerals originating within DRC +9 are conflict-free.
- Employee Training and Helplines. We actively and regularly train our employees on ethical business practices and provide a 24-hour hotline to address ethics issues should they arise.
