Environmental Information

We see environmental stewardship as a responsibility, consistently managing our carbon footprint and working to improve every community where we do business.

We are conscious of the fact that our business goals have to be respectful of the environment and thus support a long-term environmental policy.

Avnet’s Green Vision

Avnet is committed to protecting the natural environment in the communities where it does business. Avnet will proactively promote the preservation and renewal of resources and will consistently practice socio-ecological responsibility in all of its corporate operations with a focus on continuous improvement in the interests of current and future generations.


Environmental Protection


We strive to use environmentally friendly methods for consumption and disposal of materials when performing our services.

Continual Improvement

Through a process of continuous improvement in all business areas we will constantly increase the environmental compatibility of our services. The compliance of the legal provisions is standard.


Environmental protection is a leadership responsibility. We support the creativity of our employees by informing, educating and motivating them so that they can deal competently and responsibly with the interpretation of the environmental guidelines. 


The attainment of our environmental goals within the framework of the environmental management system will be regularly checked and the progress documented.


We encourage the environmental awareness of the society and seek open and factual dialog with the public. To this we inform our customers, suppliers and media about the environmental protection and also declare co-operation with authorities, associations and other institutions in these matters.
