Leading in sustainability
We take responsibility for our products and the people we work with
Sustainability offers a world of opportunities, creating value for individuals, communities, and every company. We constantly develop programs and policies to drive the implementation of our green strategy. With our eco-friendly solutions, we combine our responsibility towards the environment with the best user experience for our customers.
We take responsibility for our products and the people we work with. Therefore, our high standards not only apply to ourselves but also to our partners. This allows us to make smarter products that consume less of nature’s precious resources.
Philips green products
Green Products are defined as products that offer a significant environmental improvement in one or more green focal areas: energy, packaging, substances, weight & materials, circularity, and lifetime. We continuously improve these factors through firmware optimization and using energy-efficient components. Our green product sales represented more than 60% of our total product sales in 2018.
With the aim of making our products greener, we rely on weight reduction and a high proportion of recyclable materials for our product packaging. Each year we aim to reduce the total amount of plastic in our packaging. For our new SpeechOne, we managed to further reduce the total plastic content to less than 2% of the entire packaging.
Although we increased our production quantity over the past few years, we managed to keep our electricity output on a stable level.
