"ECOmise it" - EBV Elektronik publishes the latest edition of its know-how magazine: The Quintessence of Ecodesign


Poing, Munich -- EBV Elektronik, an Avnet (NYSE:AVT) Company and the leading semiconductor specialist in EMEA, devoted the second edition of the magazine The Quintessence to the topic of ecodesign. The magazine offers manufacturers and end consumers an in-depth insight into current legislation and developments to be expected.

Ecodesign -- the future topic in the electronics industry -- is firmly rooted in EBVís corporate strategy based on the recently initiated ĎECOmise ití campaign.

The magazine was designed by media experts and authored by independent specialist editors. ďWith this edition, we aim to provide food for thought and ideas for individual action. Protection of the environment is not only an ecological responsibility, but also a competitive advantage: you can only be economically successful by setting new ecological standardsĒ, comments Bernd Schlemmer, director of communications at EBV Elektronik.

The Quintessence of Ecodesign

What does Avnet Chairman and CEO Roy Vallee say about Avnetís environmental strategy? What do manufacturers think of the topic of power management? And which challenges will manufacturers and end consumers face -- according to experts like Dr. Reintjes from ÷kopol, Dr. Ines Oehme from the German Federal Environmental Agency, Professor Wimmer from the University of Vienna and Professor Radermacher, Head of the Research Institute for Application-oriented Knowledge Processing and Professor of Information Technology at the University of Ulm?
