Packaging is a Philips Green Focal Area which consumers see immediately when buying a product, however its environmental impact is limited compared to the product’s materials and energy consumption.
Percentage recycled materials:74%
This Green Focal Area includes design for recycling and design for disassembly. Philips uses recycled plastics and other materials when technically and commercially possible in its products and promotes the recyclability of materials.
Recycled ferrous metals:0%
Recycled non-ferrous metals:0%
This Green Focal Area aims to eliminate the use of substances of concern in our products and production processes. Prevention is better than cure and therefore alternative substances are explored as part of the EcoDesign process.
Weight is one of the Green Focal Areas that Philips considers in its EcoDesign process since reducing the amount of materials used, reduces the usage of natural resources, can increase shipping efficiency and brings benefits at the end-of-life.
