Less waste with refurbishment

Refurbishment helps keep great products in use and away from the recycling pile. In 2022, our refurbishment efforts have prevented 139 tons of electronic waste – that’s more than 39,000 refurbished Philips branded products finding new homes.


We refurbish the open box returns we get from customers and retailers, including the products from our subscription plans. For calculating the waste reduction impact, we consider the product weight of these returned products without accessories and any packaging materials. Both Philips branded personal health and the domestic appliances products sold by our brand licensee Versuni are included in the impact calculation.
