Eco-Friendly Product Strategies
In the face of serious challenges posed by global warming and shortage of energy resources, MiTAC is committed to reducing environmental impacts in various ways. Compliance with international environmental laws, customer demands, and eco-friendly product design serve as the starting points. Harmful chemical substances are controlled from the source, while energy conservation and material saving are incorporated as main considerations in the product design process.
Easy disassembly of products and simplified waste recycling are also important eco-friendly strategies to reach the short- and long-term goal of enhanced energy efficiency and reduction of harmful substances. To reduce environmental impacts generated during manufacturing processes, MiTAC has established an environmental management system and clearly formulated environmental management operating procedures to ensure an effective control of waste generation and energy usage during production processes.
Introduction of Product Design for the Environment
- 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 example, it has proposed that all energy-using products must adopt design for the environment to minimize resource depletion and pollution emission.
- 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 to 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.
