8 Steps to Cut Back Carbon
Shrinking your footprint starts early in the design process.
EMBRACE CERTIFIED RECYCLED.
New goods made from waste vs. virgin materials reduces CO2 by upwards of 9.2 lb per product.
THINK SMALLER. USE LESS MATERIALS.
Reducing product size means fewer resources needed. Lighter shipping weight. Lower emissions.
STRIVE FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY.
Adopting new technologies such as smart circuitry and GaN transistors uses electricity more responsibly.
BUILD TO LAST.
Products made with extended lifespans lead to less overall consumption. Carbon reduction goes beyond what’s in the box.
NIX PLASTIC PACKAGING.
Plastic is among the most energy intensive materials to produce. Packaging is a good place to start eliminating it.
CLOSE THE LOOP ON E-WASTE.
Electronics recycling separates and reuses precious metals, lowering demand for mining and natural resource extraction.
SHIP CARBON NEUTRAL.
Moving products creates an unavoidable footprint. Choosing “ocean” over “air” transport & seeking CO2 neutral shipping partners makes a difference.
INVEST IN CO2 REDUCTION PROJECTS.
Doing business in a better way is only half the battle. Carbon neutrality can’t be achieved without people-powered efforts to counteract atmospheric pollution.
