EBV Elektronik, an Avnet Company (NYSE:AVT), was awarded as one of the environmentally friendliest offices in Germany during the recently held competition, 'Office & Environment', in Frankfurt by the 'Bundesdeutscher Arbeitskreis für Umweltbewusstes Management' (B.A.U.M.) - (German Working Committee for Green Management). The leading specialist in EMEA's semiconductor distribution has been active for awhile now with its 'ECOmise it' campaign for effective environment and climate protection. Also in the future, the company will only print using a climate-neutral process.

In the course of the competition, 'Office & Environment', under the sponsorship of the Federal Environment Ministry and Minister Sigmar Gabriel, the expert panel of judges chose the best candidates as the prize winners for 2009, among them was EBV Elektronik. Aspects like paper usage or energy requirement of IT equipment were the main evaluation standards - areas in which, with comprehensive measures, EBV already has a firm grasp on.

"A resource considerate attitude in the daily office life is an important factor of our 'ECOmise it' campaign. The contribution of each individual appears minimal at first; however, all together we have here enormous possible savings. Therefore we sensitised our employees early on and thus motivated them. That is why we receive such creative ideas from our employees through our idea competition 'ECOmise Ideas' about where we can save even more resources. Of course, we implement these ideas when possible. We are extremely proud of this award from a nonpartisan party. It confirms to us that we, in regards to the topic of climate protection, pursued the right path from the beginning," explains Christian Meier, COO at EBV Elektronik.

Currently EBV Elektronik, subject to the regulations of the 'Forest Stewardsship Council' (FSC), only prints on certified paper from environmentally-sensitive forestry. Now, the company has announced that in the future all printed material will also go through a climate-neutral process. This will be guaranteed through the certification 'Climate-Neutral Printing' from the organisation 'ClimatePartner'.
