Planet

our planet

Here at Fischer Connectors, longevity and sustainability are synonymous.

As an industry leader for more than 60 years, we look long-term when it comes to the impact we have on our planet and communities. Our commitment to protecting the planet spans the entire lifecycle of our connectivity solutions, from design to disposal. 

Raw materials
Our responsibility to protect the environment starts with our supply chain.  Whenever possible, our connectors are made with readily-available— and easily-recyclable— raw materials.

Production
We’re committed to excellence—both in our products and the way they’re manufactured. Our quality management systems ensure our products are produced in the most responsible way possible.

Waste
We know that safe elimination of waste is essential to protecting the communities in which we operate— and the planet as a whole. Our waste management systems ensure hazardous materials are disposed of safely and effectively.

Energy
As a global company, we have a responsibility to reduce our impact on the planet. We continuously work to reduce our non-renewable energy consumption through initiatives like an energy-efficient cooling system and a solar powered-roof.  We’re also promoting the use of green transport through our partnership with SolarStratos.
