A GREENER ALBERTA NEON

RECENT ACHIEVEMENTS

Alberta Neon products are compliant with the European Directive on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment, also known as the RoHS directive. Examples of materials restricted by RoHS include lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and PBB and PBDE flame retardants.

RECYCLING

Alberta Neons approach to recycling includes using highly recyclable materials in products in addition to providing extensive take-back programs that enable consumers and businesses to safely dispose of used sign equipment.

ALBERTA NEON'S CARBON FOOTPRINT

Environmental considerations are an integral part of Alberta Neon's business practices. Over 95 percent of Alberta Neon's carbon footprint comes from the products we make. That's why from the earliest stages of product design through manufacturing to customer use and recycling, we take care to keep our activities and our products environmentally sound. Four areas of particular attention are product design, materials, energy efficiency, and recycling. Each aspect of the design cycle provides significant challenges, yet our efforts in these areas have resulted in some impressive results.

Environmental protection is a priority for the conservation of precious natural resources and the continued health of our planet. Alberta Neon recognizes its responsibility as a global citizen and is continually striving to reduce the environmental impact of the work we do and the products we create.

The benefits of using LEDs vary depending on the application, but typical technology features include:

  • Up to 90 percent energy-cost savings
  • A long life of up to 50,000 hours
  • Minimized maintenance hassles and costs
  • Low-voltage operation
  • Excellent cold-weather performance
