At Versuni we are on a journey to become a more sustainable company.
We aim to develop products made with more sustainable materials, that are easier to repair, refurbish, recycle, and help to reduce waste. We recognize our role in protecting our planet and pledge our continuous commitment to sustainability. We create sustainable solutions; we make conscious choices caring for people’s homes and our planet. We grow Versuni responsibly and sustainably. We have therefore established a set of commitments across Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) dimensions based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
|SDG 12||Ensuring sustainable use of materials and driving the transition to a circular economy|
|SDG 13||Ensuring sustainable use of energy, reducing emissions, and operating carbon-neutral|
With our EcoDesign principles, we embed more and more sustainability in our innovation processes and product development by focusing on energy efficiency, packaging, hazardous substances, weight, materials, lifetime reliability and circularity.
Striving for sustainability
In 2021, we refurbished 14,300 products and made them available for consumers via Philips.com. We have been 100% carbon neutral in our operations since 2020 and have introduced the Eco-Conscious collection using 100% bio-based plastics to reduce its CO₂ footprint by 25% but this is just the start.
Our ambition for the future
By 2025 we aim for 100% of our products to be designed in line with our EcoDesign requirements. Our 'Eco-Hero’ products (breakthrough innovative products with clear sustainability benefits) will account for 25% of revenues.
