Sustainable products

At HUBER+SUHNER, we aim for a sustainable value proposition, which takes into consideration the environmental impacts of our products. Dedicated to innovation, responsible practices and transparency, we are committed to creating products that meet global and regional standards. We have strategically developed a comprehensive approach that prioritizes transparency and embraces continuous improvements in product compliance.


Our strategy to ensure transparency and openly share the materials and substances employed in our products builds on five key pillars:


We aim to continuously explore and adopt safer alternatives to hazardous materials, complying with evolving regulations and restrictions (such as the European Union [EU] regulation on the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals [REACH]) to ensure product safety and environmental protection. We are also committed to staying updated and adhering to international standards and regulations governing materials, ensuring compliance with laws such as the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directives. In reaching this objective, we consciously invest in research and development to explore and integrate innovative, eco-friendly materials, and we collaborate with material scientists and industry partners to leverage the latest advancements in sustainable materials. Another key focus is to collaborate with suppliers to promote sustainable practices, encourage the use of eco-friendly materials, and build a mutual commitment to sustainability.


In 2023, we introduced our latest innovation in sustainable product development: lead-free connectors.

Our commitment to environmental responsibility includes the integration of materials that align with stringent compliance standards. Our new line of lead-free SMA connectors redefines the benchmark for eco-conscious manufacturing. By eliminating lead from our products, we're not just meeting regulatory requirements; we're prioritizing our environmental responsibility.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, these lead-free SMA Connectors maintain the high performance and reliability our customers expect while significantly reducing the environmental impact. We've invested in research and development to ensure that these lead-free SMA Connectors do not only meet but exceed industry standards, contributing to a healthier ecosystem without compromising on quality. With our sustainable material compliance approach, we're fostering a future where innovation and responsibility go hand in hand.
