NEC has always been at the forefront when it comes to technological innovations, many of which are related to environmental protection. Our green initiatives are responsible for lowering the energy consumption of products, complying with green manufacturing standards, eliminating chemicals that increase CO2 emissions and using chemicals that are environmentally safe (e.g. eliminating lead and mercury from circuit boards).
We are committed to the effective application of an environmental management system that meets ISO 14001:2004 requirements. We are reducing our consumption of materials in all operations and re-use materials wherever possible, by promoting recycling and the use of recycled products.
Most of our products comply with the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) directive and we have taken measures to allow for professional recycling at the end of our products’ life cycles.
NEC’s commitment to innovation drives technology developments and product portfolio improvements which, in turn, contribute to a better environment. These are illustrated by the evolution in enterprise communications from PBX technology to IP telephony, from hardware to software, and from separate voice and data solutions to converged solutions and Unified Communications.
Unified Communications, mobility solutions and integrated business applications reduce the need for business travel and make telecommuting easier than ever, while thin client solutions further help to reduce energy consumption and limit harm to the environment.
