Amphenol Piher Sensing Systems – Tudela, Spain

In 2021, our Piher business in Spain completed the installation of the first solar plant on its premises. Roughly 90% of the energy produced from the solar plant goes to our facility, which allows our team to save on energy costs and to reduce the facility’s carbon footprint.

Shanghai Amphenol Airwave – Haiyan, China

Over the past three years, our Shanghai Amphenol Airwave business has been undergoing a two-phased project to install solar panels on the roofs of our buildings in Haiyan, China. The first phase of work, completed in 2020, included the installation of solar panels on three buildings in the complex. The second phase of work, due to be completed in 2022, will include the installation of solar panels on the remaining fourth building.

Amphenol Antenna Solutions
Across the mobile network industry, the practice of installing new antennas each time there is a technology update has resulted in thousands of still-useful antennas being discarded each year. In 2021, our team at Amphenol Antenna Solutions announced a new upgradeable antenna called Integra, which allows mobile network operators to keep their base station technology up to date while also helping reduce their operators’ environmental footprint. Under the Integra solution, used antennas can be returned to Amphenol Antenna Solutions where they are refurbished and upgraded in order to be installed at other sites. During the upgrade process, modules with current technology are refurbished, while antenna modules that are obsolete are replaced with up-to-date parts. The whole antenna is then tested, certified and warrantied to the same high standard as Amphenol Antenna Solutions’ other antenna solutions. By using our Integra solution, mobile network operators are able to keep their installed network infrastructure up to date with the latest technologies, while also ensuring they are reducing their contribution to waste and landfills.
Energy Reduction in Action Story
Recycling and Reusing our Waste

Amphenol Socapex is recycling and reusing its waste, which is then turned into electricity and fertilizer.

Amphenol Socapex – Thyez, France
Starting in June 2021, our Socapex facility in France began collecting organic waste from the facility’s cafeteria for recycling and reuse. Food scraps from the cafeteria are sorted and then collected weekly by a waste contractor. The scraps are then processed to create biogas which is then used locally to produce electricity as well as to fertilize local fields.
