We continue to be carbon neutral in our operations, from our own factories to offices, logistics and travel. (Since 2020) To put it simply, that means we remove as much carbon as we release into the atmosphere. We got there by switching to wind and solar power instead of traditional electricity from fossil fuels that contribute to climate change. And in those cases where we can’t use renewable energy (like travel and logistics), we buy carbon offsets, which compensate for emissions by funding various reforestation and forest conservation projects in emerging regions. In the future, we’ll continue cutting down on remaining emissions to reduce the impact we have on the environment.
But to do our part in the battle against climate change, we have to look beyond our operations. This may come as a surprise: up to 63% of our products’ overall environmental impact comes from their use in homes. To help you use less energy without even trying, we’ve been developing high-quality, energy-efficient products for almost three decades. So if you’re in the market for a new home appliance, don’t forget to look for energy-efficient chargers and features like eco mode or auto shut off. For example, a foldable, more energy-efficient hairdryer containing recycled plastic is now available. Trust us, while the energy saved by one product may seem small, together, we can drastically reduce our impact on the environment.
