The company HONOR strives for a better and cleaner world, therefore, in this direction, it already works in various areas to protect the environment, while at the same time taking into account the wishes of its users that their devices do not pollute the environment and human health. HONOR is committed to the principle of reducing environmental impact, from the first design for a product to its final distribution worldwide, while providing hundreds of millions of its users with high-quality products and service.

HONOR supports the environment with green campaigns!

The Chinese company advocates a circular economy, especially focusing on design with eco-materials and extending the life of individual products, as this reduces the consumption of resources and negative impacts on the environment. Green packaging, durable products, responsible handling of electronic waste and the use of safe chemicals are four green initiatives implemented by the HONOR company with the aim of contributing to a cleaner environment.

Environmentally friendly green packaging: HONOR swears by the concept of packaging, sustainable packaging that is lighter, smaller, harmless and easy to collect, all in the desire to reduce consumption and care for our planet.

The company has already introduced a simpler and more durable origami-style laptop packaging. From 2021, it no longer uses cardboard boxes for transport, which means a reduction in the amount of carbon dioxide emissions to a total of 208 tons. In addition, HONOR optimized instructions for notebooks and other products and standardized printed materials for said products, saving 74 tons of paper, which is equivalent to a reduction in emissions CO2 for 77 tons.

The gift packaging and instructions for use are printed with soy ink, which reduces the risk to human health and dependence on petroleum resources, and facilitates the recycling of paper and packaging. Soy ink is made from soy, which is a 100% renewable resource. Since 2014, HONOR has been using soy ink for its promotional materials. Compared to traditional ink, the use of soy ink reduces emissions CO2 for 80 tons.

The company also works to preserve forests and biodiversity, so it uses environmentally friendly packaging materials. Gift boxes for HONOR Magic3, Magic V, HONOR GS3 watch and other products have obtained FSC certification. The packaging boxes for the Magic series smartphones are made from sugarcane bagasse, a by-product of sugar production that is CO2 neutral and 100% renewable material, while the plastic protective film of the charger and cable has been replaced with paper.

Durability is one of the important criteria for devices manufactured by HONOR. Every product and all its parts undergo strict reliability tests, which means that their lifespan is longer.

The company has established its own professional reliability laboratory, where with the help of simulation, they test a wide variety of products, both hardware and individual parts, and thus extend the life of their products. So many tests were also done on a device with a foldable screen Magic V. They are of the latter protected with stronger nano crystal glass, which means fewer spare parts and longer use of the device.

HONOR takes care of protecting the environment, from the selection of raw materials to recycling and responsible management of electronic waste. Throughout the process manufacturing, they managed to minimize their impact on the environment. Since 2021, HONOR has collected and responsibly handled 1,733 tons of electronic waste through its channels.

HONOR has created its own quality standards with the aim of meeting a range of international standards. The company is removed six potential harmful substances in the manufacture of their smartphones, tablets and other devices: chlorine, flammable bromine compounds, PVC, beryllium and beryllium compounds, phthalate and valentinite (Sb203).

In addition, HONOR has tested dozens of materials from various suppliers to ensure that the power cables for all of their smartphones and tablets are halogen-free.

Since 2016, HONOR has eliminated the use of 3,379 tons of harmful substances and materials in its products.

A total of 76 models of HONOR’s smartphones and tablets have CQC (A) environmental protection certification, and two of their models have obtained the China Environmentally Friendly Product certification.
