    At Philips, we think innovation should be about creating quality products you can love for a long time, then recycle. We’ve put this mindset into action in many ways over the years, and we’re only getting started. 

    Our goal is to create products with as little raw materials as possible, that can be recycled and re-used. To make sure select returned items don’t go to waste, we refurbish and resell them in select markets with a full guarantee. We also developed our Lumea “try and buy” model and give you the option to rent an Avent breast pump, instead of buying our products. When the rental period is over, we take the product back, then refurbish it so it can be used by another customer. 

    Outside of renting and refurbishing, we keep our products living longer by offering a selection of replaceable parts. In the future, we want to offer consumers more ways to enjoy our products for longer — and will continue designing for recyclability and repair. It’s all in service of our ultimate goal to use less and re-use more.

    91%

    Philips improved the circularity of its waste streams to 91% in 2022, increasingly recycling, re-using or reducing waste.

    And that recycled waste can be transformed into materials for other products, which reduces our environmental impact!

    In our industry, plastic has long been in demand for its durability, versatility and light weight. But it’s no secret that it can end up polluting our natural environments when it's not disposed of in the right way. And new plastic, or virgin plastic, is created using fossil fuels, which contribute to climate change.

    In our efforts to cut down on our environmental impact, we know we need to use less virgin plastic. That’s why we’ve teamed up with suppliers and recyclers worldwide to use more recycled materials in products and packaging. We think of it as a commitment to "vintage" plastic. And while we don't have access to enough quality recycled plastic to replace all the virgin plastic in our products right now, by 2025, we're aiming to quadruple our use of recycled material.

    To help make our products easier to recycle, we're phasing out chemicals like PVC and BFR. By 2025, our goal is to remove those chemicals from all possible products — with power cords being the exception. We're also exploring new exciting plastic options that have a link to the natural world. Have you heard of bio-based plastic? It's quality plastic sourced from plants or other biological materials — like used cooking oil! While we have a way to go, some of our grooming and beauty products for example, now are partly designed with recycled plastics and bio-based materials. And we continue increase the number of products with plastic free packaging.

    All together, these material innovations are propelling us towards a more eco-friendly future. By repurposing existing materials — and designing our own for re-use — we’re able to minimize waste and take less from the environment. 

    Products made from sustainable materials

    Our Sustainable Design, By the Numbers

    1,484 

    tonnes of waste were prevented across our own activities in 2022.

    By 2025,

    all our new products introductions will fulfill Philips’ EcoDesign requirements.

    We’ve already removed chemicals that make recycling difficult (like PVC and BFR) in most of our products. Our next goal is to phase them out entirely by 2025. This change will make our products easier to recycle into new materials at the end of their lives.

    This helps us save precious resources. And in cases where we can’t use recycled cardboard, we use FSC-certified cardboard, meaning it comes from a forest that is sustainably managed.

    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.
