A number of hazards caused by raw materials and components can occur during product design, manufacturing, marketing and disposal, posing a threat to the ecosystem. Therefore, the impact on the environment should be taken into account at the early design stage. Enterprises have to make a thorough plan to help reduce the impact of the products on the environment.
- To accomplish this goal, VIVOTEK has drawn up a green design guideline:
- Eliminate the use of hazardous substances (HSF)
Regulate content and limit of hazardous substances in accordance with international standard directives. VIVOTEK has drawn up a reduction plan for hazardous substances.
- Easy disassembly and recycling (WEEE)
Use recyclable and easy disassembled parts and conform to recycling rate requirements in accordance with international standard directives. VIVOTEK has developed 3R reports for every product (disassembly manual).
- Eco-design (ErP)
Reduce energy consumption and emission of hazardous substances during the entire product life cycle in accordance with international standard directives. VIVOTEK has established practices of ErP Directive.
