We are committed to the principle of reducing the impact on the environment
while providing high-quality products and services to hundreds of millions of consumers.
We insist on green design,
reducing resource consumption,
and extending the product life cycle.
While bringing ultimate technology experience to consumers,
we are committed to reducing the impact of the planet.
In 2021, we optimized product packaging,
which reduced about 285 tons of CO2 emissions.
HONOR adheres to lightweight, small, harmless, ease-to-collect, and environmentally friendly packaging design concept, and are committed to reducing resource consumption.
We adopt a simpler and more robust integrated origami packaging scheme for laptops. Since 2021, carton boxes have been canceled for transportation, which reduces CO2 emissions by a total of 208 tons. In addition, we have optimized the content structure of PC and wearable products and standardized printed materials of these products, which saves about 74 tons of paper equivalent to reducing CO2 emissions by 77 tons.
Our gift box packaging and user manuals are printed with soy ink, which reduces the harm to human health and the dependence on petroleum resources, and facilitates the recycling of packaging materials. Since 2014, Honor has been using soy ink to print promotional materials. Compared with traditional ink, using soy ink has reduced around 80 tons of CO2 emissions.
We value the conservation of forest resources and biodiversity, and use environmentally friendly packaging materials. The gift box packaging of HONOR Magic3, Magic V, HONOR Watch GS 3, and other products has passed FSC certification. The mobile phone trays of HONOR Magic series products are made from bagasse, and the plastic protective film of chargers and data cables is replaced with paper.
The longer the product is used, the less
resources are consumed. In China, the
Honor phone replacement cycle is up to 26.4
months which is longer than the average
Durability is one of the important criterias for HONOR product design. We have done complete machine and parts reliability tests and prolonged the service life of products by assessing durability from all aspects.
We have set up a professional reliability laboratory to simulate the application scenarios of various products, done complete machine and parts reliability tests, and prolonged the service life of products by assessing durability from all aspects. We have considered scenarios where Magic V foldable phones are being folded and formulated strict life requirements for bending. For the cover glass, we have developed and used the Ceramic Shield glass to greatly improve the anti-drop ability, thus minimizing the replacement of parts and ensuing that users can use the product longer.
As of 2022, we have collected and
disposed about 1,785 tons of electronic
waste through our own channels.
We adhere to green design concept at the outset of product design. From the selection of raw materials to the recycling and disposal of waste, we manage the entire product life cycle to minimize the impact on the environment. As of 2022, Honor has collected and treated about 1,785 tons of electronic waste through its own channels.
Honor will hand over used mobile phones to qualified third-party recycling companies for disposal through trade-in services. At present, the official recycling channels of Honor include online platform and offline stores. Users can go to service stores or to Honor Mall to have their mobile phones valuated and place orders. Users with eligible devices can enjoy trade-in services. Unused 3C digital products, such as mobile phones, PCs, and tablets, whatever the brand is, can be used as cash to purchase new Honor products. Honor provides one-stop recycling services, such as price estimates of used machines, SF Express free door pick-up (for pick-up orders placed in Honor Mall), professional quality inspection, and privacy clearance.
On the basis of meeting the requirements
of international standards, we has
formulated higher enterprise standards.
Since 2016, we have eliminated the use of
around 3,861 tons of hazardous
substances from our products.
On the basis of meeting the requirements of international standards, Honor has formulated higher enterprise standards. We have removed the following six potentially hazardous substances from Honor mobile phones, tablets and other products: Chlorine, brominated flame retardants, PVC, beryllium and beryllium compounds, phthalates, and Sb2O3. In addition, we have tested dozens of material formulations with multiple material suppliers to ensure that power cables for all Honor phones and tablets are halogen-free. Since 2016, we have eliminated the use of around 3,861 tons of hazardous substances and materials from our products.
At present, a total of 76 models of Honor phones and tablets have obtained CQC environmental protection grade A certification, two models of products have obtained China Environmental Labeling Product Certification.
We insist on energy conservation and emission reduction,
focus on environmental protection during production and operation
and reduce carbon emissions and environmental footprints.
We encourage employees to use
online meetings to reduce commuting and
travelling, In 2021-2022 through replacing
physical meetings with virtual meetings
we reduced carbon emissions by
approximately 69,435 tons.
In China, we open 146 commuter bus
services for our employees. Compared
with self-driving, this arrangement can
help reduce around 1,317 tons of
Honor is committed to provide a green and environmental friendly working environment for employees, and has considered environmental protection during office location selection, decoration, furniture selection, and daily operation. Furthermore, we are actively exploring the possibilities in increasing the use of renewable energy and reducing the carbon emissions of campus.Learn More
We have considered environmental protection design when selecting office locations. For example, Beijing office is located in Vanke Lake International which has obtained the LEED Gold certification, and Shenzhen office is based in New Generation Industrial Park which has obtained the Two-Star Green Building Evaluation Label.
We adopt strict environmental protection standards when selecting office furniture: the furniture shall use materials that meet with E0-class environmental standards. Before the office is put into use, a third-party professional company is arranged to conduct office air treatment and environment tests. The office can be put into actual use only when the air quality test is passed.
We have incorporated energy-saving requirements into the design and construction of campus at the planning stage. For example, we have set up energy monitoring and management systems, such as the advanced building automation system, chiller plant control system, air compressor group control system, and energy management system in HONOR Intelligent Manufacturing Industrial Park in Pingshan District, which ensures efficient operation of various equipment and facilities.
During daily operation, we actively carry out energy conservation and consumption reduction activities and continuously optimize the operation and management of facilities by establishing energy ledgers and monitoring and analyzing energy consumption data to reduce energy consumption.
He who travels alone goes fast, but he who travels in company goes far.
We insist on cooperating with our industry partners in protecting the
environment and preserving our home.
