We love the future. It’s a place of infinite possibility – the place that we work hopefully towards in our products, innovation and our environmental efforts. But, while we’re always working towards our future targets, sometimes it’s good to look back.
Our achievements show how we deliver on our promises. They also show how we’ve anticipated environmental legislation and delivered new standards long before they have come into effect. Now that’s future thinking.
Eco-highlights in our recent history:
Nokia introduced eight new eco hero devices including our first two eco heros from the Nokia Lumia family. The Nokia 700 is an industry leader in the use of bio materials, recycled plastics and recycled metals, and the Nokia Asha 200, 201 and 311 are the first eco hero devices available at a lower price point.
In order to help us reduce our dependency on fossil and virgin raw materials, we continued introducing new, more sustainable materials in our devices. This includes materials such as bio plastics, bio paints, recycled metals and recycled plastics.
