Each and every Nokia device is created with the environment in mind

Eco_profile

At Microsoft Mobile we think every device should be made with the environment in mind. We don’t make one-off eco-friendly devices – all the handsets and accessories we produce fulfill our strict environmental criteria.

We continuously improve the environmental credentials of all our products, both in the high-end smart device portfolio, as well as in the more affordable feature phone range. Nokia mobile devices have long been pioneer products in phasing out substances of concern. But it doesn't stop there. We also look at

  • improving energy efficiency

  • using renewable materials and smart packaging, and

  • creating environmental services that encourage people to adopt more sustainable lifestyles.

  • Effective end-of-life practices close the lifecycle loop, putting energy and valuable materials back into circulation.

Additionally, we at Microsoft Mobile regularly introduce new, more sustainable materials such as bio plastics, bio paints, recycled metals and recycled plastics in our devices. We have reduced content inside the packaging which has allowed us pack our products in a minimized package. The packages are also made of renewable, 100 % recyclable material

Our environmental services and applications, together with our environmentally-friendly and energy efficient devices and accessories, can inspire and help people to live more sustainably. For example, the ecologically themed Nokia Climate Mission 3D game combines the fun of gaming with the discovery of how to reduce your own ecological footprint and learn about climate change.

Every Nokia phone comes with an eco profile, which tells you about its materials, energy efficiency, packaging, environmental impact and recycling.

Eco words: what do they mean?

  • Recyclable – materials that can be processed into new products to prevent waste.

  • Renewable – resources (energy or materials) that don’t run out when we use them.

  • Sustainable – ability to conserve an ecological balance by avoiding depletion of natural resources.

  • Biomaterials – materials that are ‘grown’ or developed by using part of an organic structure.
