Verbatim gives customers the option to get high-tech in more eco-conscious ways. From our products to our packaging, Verbatim is continuously looking for ways to decrease our carbon footprint. Below are just a few examples of ways that Verbatim is helping our environment.
GREEN BUTTON Software
All Verbatim Hard Drives feature GREEN BUTTON Energy-Saving software. The software reduces energy consumption and extends the drive’s life expectancy by automatically placing the hard drive into sleep mode after a programmed period of time or by the user manually clicking on the GREEN BUTTON on the desktop.
LED Replacement Lamps
Verbatim’s range of energy efficient LED lamps contain no mercury or hazardous materials. They have a much longer life and use up to 80% less energy than standard incandescent and halogen bulbs.
Verbatim ensures that all our manufacturing facilities respect the environment. All of our factories have environment management systems in place. We also work with them to ensure the use of recycled materials in our packaging and products whenever possible.
Our USB and Memory Card package was re-designed to reduce the amount of plastic used by up to 93.9% on Memory Cards and 90.9% vs. previous plastic clamshell packaging. Now, the only plastic part of our packaging surrounds the product, thus optimizing the use of renewable resources and keeping unnecessary plastic out of landfills.
Verbatim used this redesign opportunity to eliminate the plastic case previously included with Memory Cards. Since most consumers discarded the case, all unnecessary elements have been eliminated.
This redesign has allowed us to achieve the following:
Plastic reduction up to 93.9%*
Overall packaging weight reduction up to 54.7%
Almost double the freight efficiency
Material health increase of up to 274% (carcinogen material reduction by gram)
Safer for consumers - No sharp edges!
Australian Packaging Covenant
Verbatim is a proud signatory of the Australian Packaging Covenant.
As part of the Verbatim commitment to being an environmentally responsible company, Verbatim is a signatory of the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC). The APC is a voluntary government-industry initiative with the objective of minimising the overall impacts of packaging through sustainable design.
Globally, Verbatim has a number of measures in place to reduce the impact that our company and products have on the environment. With our energy-efficient policies and the use of environmentally friendly materials in our manufacturing and packaging, we continue to find ways to increase the sustainability of our products and help to make a brighter future.
As a brand owner signatory, Verbatim is committed to the sustainable design, use, and recovery of the packaging we use for our products. This commitment has already seen dramatic reductions to the amount of plastic used in our packaging. We have also almost doubled our freight efficiency by reducing the weight of our packaging. Our end goal is to ensure that no further improvement in packaging material efficiency is possible at the present time, considering interactions between the packaging and product without negatively affecting the functionality or legal compliance.
We are continuously assessing new packaging to ensure that there are no further steps we can take to reduce the impact on the environment. We also do regular assessments of our existing products to ensure that they are keeping up with the technological advancements being made in packaging sustainability.
