Green Suppliers

Locating green components is an essential part of the process of reaching full compliance with green regulations. As I have explored the world of green initiatives, I have encountered many companies offering, or planning to offer, compliant components. This page compiles all those websites into one place. Each entry is a link to a website that specifically addresses the company policy regarding compliance. You will find descriptions of lead-free programs, component search engines, data sheets, part numbering policies, green roadmaps, and much more.

I have also written previously that not every supplier is ready. Nor are green websites offering the same information. Some are more complete than others. To help you know what to expect, I have reviewed sites and commented on what they have to offer. I rank sites from 1 to 5, with 5 being the best. What I look for is depth and breadth of compliance information. The best sites go out of their way to make it easy for you to collect compliance data on their parts. The least useful sites only offer general policies.

Ranking Criteria:

If your business has a RoHS-WEEE compliance page that is not on this list, please feel free to add it. You can use the same page to update your site information. Listings are free. I will personally verify and review each submission. A reciprocal link from your site back to the site is always welcome.

Also, if you believe I have misranked your site, please write to me with web page addresses of information I might have missed. Upon review I will correct the ranking where warranted.
