Product Design and R&D
ZTE compiled the LCA Carbon Footprint Assessment Specifications for ZTE Products, made a full-lifecycle evaluation on relevant target products in four aspects, namely goal and scope definition, list analysis, impact assessment and result interpretation according to customer demands and product positioning, and output products’ life cycle carbon footprint assessment report, quantified their resource consumption and environmental emissions, and assessed their impact on resources, ecological environment and human health.
In the whole process of product manufacturing, ZTE made innovations in equipment energy efficiency, process scheme energy efficiency and management energy efficiency, and actively explored new green manufacturing patterns.
ZTE was fully aware of its social responsibilities in recycling waste products. According to our recycling management guidelines of "safety, environmental friendliness and professionalism", and waste electronic equipment management regulations of various countries, it actively promoted the recycling of waste products and resource. The company set up a professional department in charge of green recycling.
Product Packaging and Transportation
In terms of product packaging, ZTE continued to optimize and improve packaging design. By optimizing packaging materials and packaging structure and implementing the whole machine packaging, it reduced the weight of product packaging and saved transportation resources. In 2021, the weight of packaging material was reduced by 689.1 tons in total through weight reduction design. In terms of green logistics, ZTE always delivered finished products more by air but less by railway, and reduced conventional transportation of materials in the parks, so as to achieve energy conservation and emission reduction.
