Eco-friendly Product Strategies

 

The Global GPS and DashCam Brand Leader

Facing the increasingly severe challenges of global warming and energy and resources depletion, to reduce the environmental impact of products, MiTAC engages in product eco-design. Based on international environmental protection laws and regulations and customer requirements, we include energy conservation, materials reduction, ease of disassembly and waste recovery simplification in product design. In the control of hazardous chemical substances, we set short- and medium-term goals for the reduction of hazardous substances, reduce environmental impacts in the manufacturing process, establish the environmental management system and establish various environmental management SOPs to control waste produced and energy and materials used in the process.

In addition to the existing foundation, we continued to promote the circular economy concept in 2021 to progressively realize our green commitment in CSR.

 

 Introduction of Product Design for the Environment

Through compliance with international environmental protection regulations, product eco-design and passing ecolabel certification, we constantly realize our green commitment described as follows:

  • International environmental laws: From an international law development perspective, product design for the environment is now more than just concept promotion. Taking the ErP (EU) as an example, it has proposed that all energy-using products must adopt design for the environment to minimize resource depletion and pollution emissions.
  • Design for the environment: MiTAC has stipulated DFE (Design for Environment)/Eco-design as one of the prerequisites of product design, therefore we demand our R&D personnel take into consideration the products’ environmental impact during different stages, including design, production, packaging, transportation, usage and re-cycle for re-use to waste disposal.
  • Ecolabels: We distribute products that meet the highest eco-standards and eco-design requirements of different countries, such as the EPEAT and Energy Star of the USA, the SEPA and CECP of China, the Green Mark of Taiwan, the EU Flower of Europe, and the Blue Angel of Germany, in response to the customer’s sales needs. To meet the green procurement threshold of different countries, we strive to fulfill the environmental protection requirements for the design, use, recycling, energy consumption and toxin allowance right at the product development stage.

 

 

 

 

Thin client PC

  • Key aspects of design for the environment

    • Increases energy efficiency

    • Ecological design

    • Minimizes toxic environmental hazard

  • Design content and benefits

    • Conforms to the GB28380 Minimum allowable values of energy efficiency and energy grades for microcomputers and the Energy Star international standard in the US. Adopt external power supplies that conform to the Level V standard in order to improve energy conversion efficiency.

    • The plastic case is made from monomer plastics, metal and plastic that does not stick and are easily dismantled for recycling. The metal and plastic are not painted to increase the recycling rate.

    • We only use plastics free from plasticizers (environmental hormone), HBCDD-free mainboards, CFC-free production process, materials complying with the RoHS recast and REACH standard and halogen-free materials in order to decrease environmental impact.

    • Adoption of Level VI compliant power supplies for AIO series products.

    • Use plastics that do not contain the following four types of plasticizers (environmental hormones): DEHP, BBP, DBP, and DIBP and comply with the new hazardous substances added to RoHS in 2015/863/EU.

    • Increases energy efficiency

    • Ecological design

    • Minimizes toxic environmental hazard

  • Design content and benefits
    • Comply with the current Energy Star 3.0 international standard in the US to increase energy efficiency. Use integrated power supply conforming to the 80Plus standard in order to improve energy conversion efficiency.

    • Use CFC-free production process, materials complying with the RoHS recast and REACH standard to decrease environmental impact.

    • Implement the modular mechanism design to achieve elasticity, adjustment flexibility, and easy maintenance, simplify future component upgrade and repair and maintenance, and accelerate new product development.

    • Trial adoption of RoHS exemption (6a/6b/6c-alloy materials, 7c-i glass or ceramic piezoelectric material) components for specific server products and verifications.

    • Trail PCB containing no BFRs/CFRs on specific server products for verification.

    • Use plastics that do not contain the following four types of plasticizers (environmental hormones): DEHP, BBP, DBP, and DIBP and comply with the new hazardous substances added to RoHS in 2015/863/EU.

Server Mainboard

  • Key aspects of design for the environment
    • Optimize packing and shipping

    • Reduce environmental impact

  • Design content and benefits
    • A priority for packaging to share existing design. This not only decreases stock materials but also saves purchasing cost, transportation fee and fuel.

    • Minimize the materials, energy, water resources used for mold-making as well as waste water, air and material generated at the end of the production cycle, thereby effectively mitigating environmental impact.

    • Redesign the space for accessories in order to increase the number of products per box.

    • Replace complete user’s manual with single-sheet Quick Guide, and electronic user’s manual is available for download by the client.

    • Use 100% non-toxic packaging materials which are recyclable eco-friendly materials.

    • Conforms to Packaging and Packaging Waste (PPW).
