Toshiba is proud to say we're not only leading innovation in mobile
technology, but leading the charge to preserve the air we breathe, the
water we drink and the ground we walk on.
When it comes to building our award-winning products, we believe less
is more. So we minimize waste and use recycled materials wherever we
can, while constantly looking for ways to reduce energy consumption.
Our own recycling programs keep discarded technology from fouling the
soil and atmosphere, as does our devotion to worldwide environmental
initiatives. Plus, we check to see that the people who make the
materials that go into our products follow earth-friendly practices
just as we do so we all can enjoy mobile computing amid a cleaner, more
sustainable "global village."
No, it isn't always easy being green. But it sure is the right thing to do.
Laptop Recycling and Trade-In
Of course we'd like you to buy a new Toshiba laptop PC. But we also
want to help you retire your old technology the right way and maybe get
back some green as you go green. So if it still has trade-in value,
we'll mail you a credit when you send us your old working laptop. And
even if it isn't working, we can see that it's recycled properly. That
goes to show you how banding together for the good of the environment
can be good for your pocket book too. learn more »
A leading global citizen, Toshiba products are compatible with the
strict standards set by these world-recognized directives:
WEEE (Waste from Electrical and
Electronic Equipment) Protects the environment by promoting the reuse,
recycling and recovery of electronic materials.
RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substance
Standard) Seeks to reduce the use of manufacturing substances that harm
human health or the environment.
The result? We've kept tons of toxic chemicals and other substances out of the ecosystem.
Thanks to stringent procurement standards launched in 2000, Toshiba
technology is green from the ground up. Our suppliers must participate
in a stringent, 22-point environmental performance survey, and we then
favor those with the highest scores. This program not only results in
greener products, but encourages other companies to improve their
environmental practices too. It's just one way we ensure our green
program keeps right on growing.
A very odd name for a very smart idea, Factor T is how we've gotten
green down to a science. In fact Toshiba has created a mathematical
formula for balancing the consumer value of our products with their
environmental impact. Our goal is to double our eco-efficiency by 2010.
And we're well on our way. learn more »
