Life cycle thinking.
For ST, Sustainable Technology means improving our social and environmental footprint at every stage of the product life, from raw material extraction to end of life.
End of life
We identify and promote innovative products that provide society with environmental and social benefits, such as reducing the energy consumption of end-applications, saving resources, protecting the environment, and providing solutions that improve people’s quality of life.
What makes a product responsible?
The responsible characteristics of a product are linked to the environmental or social domain.
We define 4 categories of responsible characteristics:
|Power-efficient device - consuming less electricity|
|Low-carbon device - reducing the manufacturing footprint|
|Planet-friendly application - enabling green solutions|
|Human-welfare application - innovating for people’s wellbeing|
Our Sustainable Technology label
We evaluate our products and then award the Sustainable Technology label to the flagship responsible products that demonstrate sustainable benefits for people and the environment.
