Amphenol Australia is committed to reducing the burden on the environment by a programme of continuous improvement. This includes working towards eliminating all substances that are harmful to the environment, or where this is not possible, reducing their impact to an absolute minimum.

d)marking of own manufacture product packaging with appropriate recycling symbols at the design stage,
e)subscribing to local recycling programs for paper, cardboard, plastic, aluminium, steel and glass, and promoting such programs internally to employees,
