Product certifications: demonstrably sustainable

Sustainable products are a key factor in competition for us. In order to inform our customers about the sustainability benefits of our products, we rely on recognized ecolabels, such as the Blue Angel in Germany. Most fixed-line phones and our entire media receiver product family boast the Blue Angel label. In 2018, the 401 and 601 SAT media receivers also received the certificate as additional models in the series. Devices certified with this ecolabel also contain information for customers as to how the products can be used in an energy-efficient manner. In addition to the Blue Angel, we have also increasingly been using the TÜV Green Product Label. In addition to ecological criteria, this also requires inspections of working conditions at production sites. A number of our routers, including the Speedport Neo, have already been certified by the TÜV Green Product Label.

The labels not only serve as information for our customers, however. Their strict requirements also help us see how we can further improve our products.
