Design for Sustainability

Design it with less. Design it smarter.
Design it for progress.

Take it apart, find the impacts, and design it better.

The products you love - designed better

Design for Sustainability looks back as well as forward. We continually revisit the products in our portfolio by disassembling and re-evaluating them. We look for hidden impacts and find ways to improve their sustainability performance with better materials, production processes, and packaging.

A process for continuous improvements

Design for Sustainability is a complex process. In short, Logitech uses its assessment tools to collect data on carbon, circularity, materials, and packaging, ultimately leading to meaningful changes.

Reduce waste and extend life

Reduce waste and extend life

Circular Design is about maintaining materials in a closed loop for as long as possible before the end of life. Our Circularity Assessment Tool helps us make better decisions for the longevity, reuse, and recyclability of products. Our use of Next Life Plastics is just one of the ways we are embracing circularity to reduce the carbon footprint of our products.

Assess and improve carbon impacts

Assess and improve carbon impacts

Designers use our Product Impact Calculator Tool to project the carbon footprints of concepts early in the design process. They rapidly assess multiple design options and choose a variation with a lower carbon footprint. The same approach can be used to analyze entire portfolios and drive carbon reductions at scale.

Reduce and improve packaging

Reduce and improve packaging

We evaluate packaging design options for optimal performance. That includes using fewer materials by weight, eliminating single-use plastics when possible, and reducing carbon impact while balancing requirements for protection, cost, and experience.

  • FSC-certified paper packaging
  • 36% recycled content
  • Wood fiber tissue wrap
  • Molded pulp tray
  • 99% paper packaging, by weight, to support curbside recyclingwhere recycling facilities exist

In everything we imagine.
In everything we do.

Our work is informed by 15 Design for Sustainability Principles. These principles guide our product teams towards lower-impact, more circular design solutions.
