Green product management
We develop the Zyxel Green Product Management System to standardize procedures for managing and monitoring the consecutive and interlinked stages of its products — from materials acquisition to design and development, as well as manufacturing, delivery and installation, use, maintenance, repair, upgrading, end-of-life treatment, and disposal.
Our green product management procedure
international compliant section
Our international compliant green product management
The directives with which Zyxel and its suppliers comply cover three main aspects of eco-design, including hazardous substances, recycling management, and ecological design.
Zyxel’s products have obtained several environmental or safety-related certifications throughout the years.
Carbon footprint section
Carbon footprint management
From receiving ISO 14064-1 certification to establishing a carbon footprint calculation platform, developing carbon footprint labels, and promoting product lifecycle thinking, Zyxel introduces the green concept in the early stage of product design and reduces carbon footprint during product manufacturing and transportation. We work relentlessly to optimize product life spans and recyclability and gradually minimize the direct and indirect environmental impacts throughout the lifecycle of Zyxel products.
Carbon footprint calculation platform
Our carbon footprint and environmental footprint calculation platform helps us understand each product’s environmental impact during its life cycle and further optimize the product specifications to be environmentally friendly.
Carbon footprint label
Zyxel develops a carbon footprint label to disclose the carbon footprint on its products or packaging, providing customers with open, transparent information as a manifestation of the company’s determination to develop green products.
Hazardous substance section
Hazardous substance management
Consumer safety and health is the most essential consideration we apply to product design and development. Zyxel follows the standards regulated by RoHS, WEEE, and ErP to ensure detoxification, dematerialization, and decarbonization of our products. In 2021, the European Rapid Alert System for dangerous products (RAPEX) reported zero Zyxel products as unsafe.
