Our use of mobile phones places strains on the environment that are difficult for us to grasp as users. These include energy consumption, resource consumption, chemical dispersion and other environmental aspects that are often invisible to consumers, as they largely occur far away from the user of the phone.
Good Environmental Choice has drawn up environmental requirements and set criteria for mobile phone subscriptions aimed at reducing the environmental impact of mobile phone use. By ecolabelling mobile phone subscriptions, mobile phone operators can help drive progress towards a sustainable society.
Our environmental requirements mean
- That the mobile phone’s impact on the environment, nature and health is reduced.
- That it must be easy for consumers to make a sustainable choice by choosing ecolabelled products.
- That mobile phone subscription companies develop more sustainable business models that promote reuse, and better and more effective products, as well as giving consumers greater opportunities to use their mobile phones in an environmentally better way.
- That the environmental effects of energy use related to a mobile phone subscription are reduced.
The aim of the criteria is to reduce the environmental impact by increasing energy efficiency, promoting an extended service life, encouraging reuse and expanding environmentally sound recycling.
