To achieve this, CyberPower has instituted a comprehensive lead-free solder reliability process and has worked with its base of vendors to obtain only RoHS-compliant components.

In addition to RoHS-compliance, CyberPower is pioneering the development of energy-saving technologies designed to significantly decrease the energy used by UPS systems. Beyond its products, CyberPower has ensured that its product boxes, packing material, plastic box handles, inks and all other materials used to process and ship products that are environmentally-friendly.
