When it comes to caring for the environment, the goals are to optimize resources and to find efficiencies wherever possible.
Great environmental improvements require collaboration. High definition video conferencing solutions from LifeSize empower this collaboration, simply and cost-efficiently. We invite you to explore how LifeSize will help you extend environmental initiatives at your company. Read more about the LifeSize solutions that will help you achieve your goals.
When you use Lifesize high definition video conferencing solutions, you are making a positive impact on the environment by reducing travel (and its related costs) and by using equipment produced with low environmental impact.
Lifesize works with a world-class partner whose manufacturing operations were awarded the ISO 9001/9002 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) certifications. Earning these designations involves rigorous documentation and inspection by accredited auditors to certify processes for quality, environmental and regulatory compliance.
Reduce Travel and CO2 Emissions
When it comes to travel, the cost of tickets, lodging, meals and time spent away from the office are the easiest to measure and enough for most companies to justify video conferencing. The hidden cost of CO2 emissions, however, is just as significant. A single round trip from Los Angeles to Tokyo emits 6 tons of CO2. By contrast, the average U.S. household has a carbon footprint of about 17 metric tons per year. Reducing routine air travel delivers immediate and measurable cuts in CO2 emissions.
Standards in Manufacturing
Lifesize is committed to fulfilling its social and environmental responsibilities as a global corporate citizen. As a high definition video conferencing equipment manufacturer, these responsibilities include ensuring that our products are safely and efficiently manufactured and properly disposed.
We ensure that all Lifesize products meet the requirements of the Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) legislation from the EU and Japan. China has also enacted similar legislation, and all Lifesize products shipping directly into China are China RoHS compliant.
Recycle with LifeSize
Even with top-flight manufacturing standards, electronic components can pose an environmental hazard if not disposed of properly. Lifesize supports and adheres to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive and implementing regulations. This means that Lifesize customers who purchase new high definition video conference equipment may:
- Send old equipment for recycling on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis (this varies depending on the country), or
- Send the new equipment back for recycling when it ultimately becomes waste.
