In 2011 we introduced a new element to our Sustainable Technology program, called STAR Responsible Products, which aims to identify and promote innovative products that provide clear environmental and social benefits to society, such as reducing the energy consumption of the end-application, saving resources, protecting the environment, or providing new social solutions which improve the end-user's quality of life:
What makes a responsible product?
- Social: Embedded in applications dedicated to physical well-being, safety, personal security, improving quality of life
- Energy saving: Either focused on the ST chip itself or on the application
- Environment: Contributes to resources savings and environmental preservation
- 1 STAR: Incremental improvement to existing offering
- 2 STAR: Significant improvement to exising offering
- 3 STAR: New and drastic improvement to existing offering
