Vishay Intertechnology’s manufacturing facilities in the Philippines have been awarded three awards for environmental and safety performance from the Philippine government in 2010. To be considered, Vishay had to meet government environmental targets and be 100 % compliant with all legal requirements respecting permits, emissions, wastewater effluent and recycling standards. The plant actually exceeded the environmental targets by more than 20 %, according to Vishay.

Vishay Philippines employs more than 630 associates manufacturing optoelectronic components such as infrared emitters, photo detectors, remote control receivers, LEDs, and optical sensors.
 
The 'Certificate of Recognition' was personally awarded to Vishay by Philippines President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Only seven other companies in the Philippines received the award.
