“At ZMDI, sustainability is all about providing customers with products
that ease the demand for energy; i.e., power and fuel in sensing, power
management and lighting applications. To reach this goal, ZMDI’s
product designers develop semiconductor products that are used by our
customers to design innovative energy-efficient systems. Winning the
Green Apple Award is a great honor as we work to provide customers in
automotive, consumer and industrial markets with IC solutions that help
fulfill their need to significantly reduce the energy consumption in
end applications,” said Frantz Saintellemy, President ZMD America, Inc.
and Exec VP – Global Sales and Marketing at ZMDI. “To reverse the trend
toward increasing world energy consumption and therefore increasing CO(2) emissions, an extraordinary effort for energy reduction, including a
path to “green” energy generation, is needed. Indeed, energy efficiency
starts at the chip level.”

The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green
Organization and have become well established as one of the most
popular environmental campaigns in the world. The awards are now in
their eighteenth year and are well established as one of the major
environmental recognition campaigns, both in the UK and
internationally. The Green Apple Environment Awards recognize, reward
and promote environmental best practices around the world.

In addition to enabling “active” energy savings by using special
technologies and design methodologies, ZMDI products also lead to
“passive” energy savings. An example of a “passive” energy saving
device is ZMDI’s battery monitoring IC, which enables the “stop-start”
functionality in vehicles and therefore indirect (passive) energy/fuel

ZMDI’s energy-saving technologies address almost all market segments;
e.g., automotive and transportation, lighting, industry and
infrastructure, and mobile consumer applications. Its power management
and sensor solutions enable customers to create the most
energy-efficient products in their markets.
