HONOR Announces Latest Sustainability Progress and Launches New Monthly HONOR Magic Moments “Earth View in the Mirror” Challenge


Raising more awareness about the environment and sustainability, a new monthly HONOR Magic Moments challenge themed “Earth View in the Mirror” kicks off today on Instagram, Facebook, and HONOR Global Club. The challenge aims to encourage participants to enjoy and capture the beautiful landscapes around the world. At the same time, HONOR’s official website has been updated with a new environmental page.

“At HONOR, we are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our products,” said George ZhaoCEO of HONOR Device Co., Ltd. “Sustainability and the circular economy being part of our product design philosophy, we strive to improve the environmental friendliness of our products by evaluating their carbon footprint throughout their life cycle, while reducing consumption of resources and energy.

Improving packaging with environmental awareness in mind

To minimize resource consumption, HONOR uses packaging materials that are lightweight, compact, harmless, easy to recycle and environmentally friendly. The company also helps protect the environment by replacing traditional petroleum-based inks and plastics with renewable and biodegradable packaging materials.

By switching from petroleum-based ink to soybean ink, HONOR has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by about 80 tons since 2014. For HONOR Magic series, the phone tray is made of cane bagasse sugar instead of plastic, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 32 tonnes per million units. HONOR also replaced plastics with paper for the protective film of chargers and data cables, further reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 35 tons for 10 million units. In addition, Forest Stewardship Council-certified packaging boxes are used to contain products such as HONOR Magic Series smartphones and HONOR Watch GS3, which help conserve a forest area of ​​about 122 hectares per year.

Since 2021, HONOR has been working on designing a simpler and more robust packaging solution for laptops. Currently, HONOR laptops are all packaged in boxes made of individual pieces of folded corrugated cardboard. Medium boxes typically used in delivery have also been eliminated, contributing to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by a total of 208 tonnes. For laptops and portable devices, HONOR saved about 74 tons of paper, equivalent to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of 77 tons, by optimizing the packaging structure and consolidating the management of printed materials. .

Meet strict environmental standards with industry-recognized certifications

In addition to meeting international requirements, HONOR maintains a stricter set of internal environmental standards to play an active role in eliminating potential harmful substances from its smartphones, tablets and other products.

After testing dozens of material formulas in partnership with multiple suppliers, HONOR has decided to use halogen-free power cables for all of its smartphones and tablets, a change that has led to the reduction of hazardous materials in the products of the mark of approximately 3,379 tons since its launch. effective in 2016. To date, 76 of HONOR’s smartphones and tablets have received the Grade A environmental label from China Quality Certification Center (CQC).

Exploring clean energy for greener operations

With a strong emphasis on environmental protection during its production and operations, HONOR aims to reduce its environmental footprint through energy conservation and emission reduction. While exploring the use of clean energy to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from its industrial park, HONOR optimizes facility management to reduce energy consumption in daily operations by maintaining energy records and monitoring and reporting. analyzing relevant data.

HONOR is encouraging its staff to embrace remote working by leveraging telecommunications tools such as audio and video calls to reduce the need for business travel. The change is estimated to reduce carbon emissions by 26,761 tonnes in one year, according to a research report co-authored by the Environmental Education and Communication Center of the Department of Environmental Protection.[1]. Inside the HONOR Smart Manufacturing Industrial Park, HONOR operates 146 shuttle routes, providing a greener option for employees to commute to work and effectively reducing carbon emissions by an additional 1,317 tons.[2].
