How green is your display?
11/12/19, 8:30 am
Businesses make choices about how they operate. Who to sell to, how much to charge, how much to spend to get that sale are all necessary questions. The pace of technological adoption paired with faster upgrade cycles has led to a culture of buying and discarding.
In 2016, Australians generated an average of 23.6kg1 of e-waste2 per person. This is equal to a cube measuring 83m on each side, or half the volume of the MCG.3
Curbing this consumption and upgrade cycle means choosing better products. This means products that are responsible to both customer needs and the environment.
Five things to look for when choosing green displays
High Quality Manufacturing
Lower resource consumption because of durability and fewer repairs needed.
High Usage of <br>Recycled Materials
Reduces landfill and repurposes precious materials from existing products.
Production compliant with reduced emission standards
Lower carbon footprint from manufacturing processes.
Minimised Packing and Shipping
Reduced material consumption and waste while lighter weight contributes to lower fuel use in transportation.
Integrated Energy Saving
More efficient operation, using less electricity without compromising on performance.
