Carbon Labeling For a Climate-Smart Future
What’s in a number? When it comes to carbon, numbers tell an important story. We’re upfront and transparent about the amount of climate-impacting carbon generated as we make, distribute, use, and eventually recognize the end-of-life of our products.
We’re working hard to reduce the carbon footprint of our products and holding ourselves accountable by placing a carbon footprint label directly on the box.
We All Have a Carbon Footprint, So We All Have a Climate Impact
Whether it’s making a cup of coffee, driving a car, or gaming at home, our everyday actions release greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere – and right now, we’re collectively releasing too much of it. It gets trapped, causing the planet to warm with resulting environmental and social impact.
We all create an impact and have an opportunity to reduce it. Measuring and understanding this impact is the first step towards managing it.
We Can Reduce Our Climate Impact by Reducing Our Carbon Emissions
At Logitech we’re working hard to balance the carbon we emit with the carbon we remove and eliminate. When the two are equal, a business is considered ‘carbon neutral’. Logitech is on track to be completely carbon neutral by 2021, but we want to go even further. We’re constantly assessing our products and manufacturing processes, and reducing carbon by ‘designing out’ the most wasteful combinations.
Ultimately, It’s All About Choices
Giving you the full picture on what goes into making each product is important because it allows you to make an informed choice. The climate crisis is real. Action is urgently needed. That’s why in June 2020, we promised to be open and clear about the carbon footprint of our products, and what we’re doing to reduce it. Now, you can make a choice that’s informed not just by the price and features of your purchase, but by its environmental impact too.
What's Behind The Number
Quite a lot! The number on our carbon label is an estimate of the total carbon footprint of a product and packaging over its entire life cycle. It shows the weight of CO2e gases emitted over an assumed two year use period. We have developed a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) methodology that allows us to estimate a product’s carbon impact from raw material sourcing to manufacturing, distribution, consumer use, and ultimately disposal or recycling at end-of-life.
Looking at a Logitech Gaming Mouse
Let’s explore the carbon footprint of the Logitech Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse, by looking at what happens at each phase of its life.
How It's Used
The Start of Something Big
In June 2020, Logitech was the first consumer electronics company to commit to providing detailed carbon impact labeling for ALL products on its packaging and online marketing materials. With hundreds of products this takes time and we are working with external experts to further validate our data.
