Quality & Environment
At Contour we are committed to maintaining green practices. We consider the environmental impact of our products from the design phase through to production and shipping to our clients.
Contour and WEEE
The European Union’s (EU) Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive 2002/96/EC came into effect in February 2003. The directive imposes the responsibility for the disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment on the producers of such equipment. As a supplier of interconnect products (components and sub-assemblies), Contour Electronics Ltd does not directly produce EEE, as defined in WEEE’s Annex 1A.
Contour’s WEEE Policy can be found here.
Contour and Conflict Minerals
Being a socially responsible company in our global community is very important to Contour. We are committed to fully complying with the laws, rules and regulations of the countries in which we operate. We are also committed to continually evaluating our business practices in light of the values and principles that are important to us, taking into consideration the interests of our customers, employees, suppliers and the communities in which we work and live.
We have created a minerals policy that makes our stance clear. Our Conflict Materials Policy can be found here.
