Ecosystem procedure and certifications
With a goal of minimizing negative environmental impacts, Zyxel and its suppliers comply with the latest European Union environmental policies and directives to develop non-toxic, easy to assemble/disassemble, and long lifespan products. The directives cover three main aspects of eco-design, including “hazardous substances in electronic products,” “recycling management of electronics,” and “ecological energy design of products.” Zyxel's products also obtained several environmental or safety-related certifications during the past few years.
The following illustration shows more specific regulations and directives with which Zyxel and its suppliers comply.
The ISO 14006 eco-design process is a crucial component of Zyxel’s integrated product policy. By following ISO 14006 guidelines, Zyxel's green products management system obtained ISO 9001/TL 9000 and ISO 14001 certifications.
