A supplier of networking equipment based on time-triggered technology and modular safety platforms is the first high-tech company to be awarded the WindMade certification label. In its headquarters in Austria, TTTech obtains 78% of its power is from wind energy. The label, backed by the UN Global Compact and conservation group WWF, requires participating companies to obtain at least 25 % of their electricity from wind power.
“We believe that being WindMade is good for both the environment and our business. It gives us the opportunity to demonstrate to customers that sustainability has top priority for TTTech, and that gives us an edge over our competitors,” said Georg Kopetz, co-founder and member of the Executive Board at TTTech.
Company products let developers in the transportation and automation industries deliver reliable real-time systems quickly and efficiently. The company’s solutions are deployed in applications in the Airbus A380, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and the Audi A8. Using technology similar to that in aircraft and performance cars, the company delivers Ethernet solutions to improve reliability and productivity of the next generation of wind turbines, to WindMade partner Vestas.
The WindMade label lets companies communicate their commitment to renewable energy while providing consumers with the choice to favor companies and products using wind power.
