Salut untuk Sony Ericsson. Perusahaan patungan antara Swedia dan Jepang ini benar-benar membuktikan komitmennya untuk membantu mengurangi polusi dan meningkatkan kualitas lingkungan. Bukan sekedar wacana, tapi dibuktikan dengan membuat portfolio khusus dengan nama GreenHeart™.

Dilandasi konsep awal yang diumumkan pada bulan Februari lalu, hari ini secara resmi Sony Ericsson mengumumkan wujud nyata dari konsep tersebut, berupa 2 buah ponsel baru dari seri GreenHeart™, ditambah dengan sebuah headset (handsfree) yang akan dipaketkan pada salah satu dari kedua ponsel tersebut.

Apa saja yang membedakan seri GreenHeart™ ini dari seri lainnya? Dari sisi ponselnya, 50% casing yang membalut ponsel akan dibuat dari bahan daur ulang. Untuk mengurangi pemakaian kertas, manual tidak lagi diberikan dalam bentuk buku tetapi akan dipaket sebagai file elektronik yang dapat dibaca melalui ponselnya. Dari sisi kemasan, kotak ponsel akan terbuat dari bahan daur ulang dengan ukuran yang seminimal mungkin.

Dua ponsel yang diumumkan adalah C901 GreenHeart™ dan Naite. C901 GreenHeart™ adalah versi ramah lingkungan dari C901 Cyber-shot™ yang baru saja dirilis, secara keseluruhan sama kecuali bahannya yang berbeda. Sedangkan Naite adalah ponsel pertama dari seri GreenHeart™ untuk kelas menengah ke bawah.

Berikut adalah press release dari portfolio GreenHeart™:

Sony Ericsson announces new GreenHeart™ portfolio strategy and bold CO² emissions reduction targets

04 June 2009

  • Company commits to 20% CO² emissions reduction across internal operations by 2015
  • Additional commitment to reduce full life cycle CO² emissions by 15% for all products by 2015
  • New GreenHeart™ pioneer products commits company to reduce overall environmental impact of its entire portfolio

London – June 4, 2009 – Sony Ericsson today unveiled goals for reducing CO² emissions across the whole company by 20% by 2015 in absolute terms. At the same time the company committed to reducing the total greenhouse gas emissions by 15% from the full life cycle of its products i.e. from the mining, production, through the use by consumers to the end of life management by 2015.

A key pillar of these commitments is the introduction of Sony Ericsson’s new GreenHeart™ pioneer products which launched with two flagship phones – the C901 GreenHeart™ and Naite- and the MH300 headset, one of the greenest on the market.  Green innovations showcased in the new GreenHeart™ pioneer phones will migrate into the wider portfolio enabling the company to continually reduce the environmental impact of its entire portfolio, to become a benchmark for the industry.

Both the C901 GreenHeart™ and Naite build on Sony Ericsson’s industry leading ‘green core’, the result of a long standing commitment to eliminate the use of hazardous chemicals from its phones. Additional ‘green’ features include an e-manual that reduces paper usage by over 90%, smaller packaging that decreases transport related CO² emissions by over 80%, recycled plastics and a low-power charger. Thanks to these innovations, the overall CO² footprint of the GreenHeart™ products is reduced by 15%.

“Since the start of the joint venture in 2001, Sony Ericsson has strived to exceed industry standards in the removal of harmful substances and energy efficient chargers. We have implemented a full life cycle approach to sustainability in order to build phones with a green core as well as reducing CO² emissions from the product in use and ensuring sustainable end-of-life treatment.” said Dick Komiyama, President, Sony Ericsson. ”Today’s announcement on emission reduction targets and the new GreenHeart™ pioneer products is the next step in building a more sustainable business and a key pillar in our invigorated product portfolio strategy.”

The company is also committing to a significant increase in the volume of phones collected as part of its global TakeBack initiative. Sony Ericsson aims to collect one million phones yearly from its own system from 2011 onwards making it easy for consumers to recycle by providing more locations and information about the process.

Anne-Sofie Andersson, Director, International Chemical Secretariat (ChemSec) said, “Sony Ericsson proactively engages with our organisation on a number of chemicals related sustainability issues. In the ChemSec Business Group Sony Ericsson is a constructive and ambitious counterpart, actively contributing to the debate on initiatives such as the revision of RoHS, aimed at reducing the use of toxic chemicals and heavy metals in consumer goods.”

“Information and communications technologies can have a major role to play in delivering a low carbon world,” states Peter Madden, Chief Executive, Forum for the Future. “ We’re really pleased to be working with one of the leading manufacturers – Sony Ericsson – as they commit to making the carbon reductions necessary to avoid climate change and ensure their business can prosper in the low carbon economy of the future.”

Sony Ericsson launches new GreenHeart™ products with focus on sustainable innovation

04 June 2009

CO² footprint of GreenHeart pioneer phones reduced by 15%:

  • E-manual reduces paper usage by over 90%
  • Smaller packaging reduces transport emissions and paper usage
  • Minimum 50% recycled plastics
  • MH300 GreenHeart ™ headset includes 100% recycled plastics in most plastic parts

London – June 4, 2009 – Sony Ericsson today unveiled two new GreenHeart™ pioneer products underpinning its ongoing commitment to taking a lead on environmental sustainability by driving green innovation that doesn’t compromise on product design and functionality. The GreenHeart™ programme launches with two flagship products – the C901 GreenHeart™ and Naite– plus the MH300 GreenHeart ™ headset, one of the greenest headsets on the market. The GreenHeart™ concept is a key pillar in Sony Ericsson’s revitalised product portfolio strategy and the sustainable innovations found in the GreenHeart™ pioneer products will eventually roll out into the broader portfolio.

Both new GreenHeart™ phones build on Sony Ericsson’s industry leading ‘green core’, the result of a long standing commitment to eliminate the use of hazardous chemicals from the product design and manufacturing process.

The first flagship product to be launched, the C901 GreenHeart™, will include an electronic, in-phone manual to replace the standard paper version, saving over 90% in paper and reducing the environmental impact of transporting the final product through more compact packaging. The C901 GreenHeart™ phone casing is made from a minimum of 50% recycled plastics and includes an optimised display light sensor that uses less energy. The phone is coloured with waterborne paint that lowers exposure to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).

The C901 GreenHeart™ will ship with the MH300 GreenHeart ™ headset, one of the greenest headsets available, made up of 100% recycled plastics in 4 out of 5 hard plastic parts and far exceeding legal environmental requirements.

As well as featuring many of the innovations showcased in the C901 GreenHeart™, Naitewill come to market with a low-power charger, the EP300 GreenHeart™ charger, one of the first of its kind to be introduced to the market. Thanks to these innovations, the overall CO² footprint over the full life of the C901 GreenHeart™ and Naite is reduced by 15%.

The first GreenHeart™ pioneer phone, the C901 GreenHeart™ will also include a WalkMate application, letting users really walk the talk about being more eco-friendly by comparing the steps they take with the equivalent journey travelled by car. And Naite includes an Ecomate application helping users make greener choices in their everyday life as well as a Carbon Footprint Calculator to show you how much CO² you are saving when you walk instead of taking the car.

“Building on the established heritage of our parent companies, Sony Ericsson has worked continuously to become an industry leader in the area of removing harmful substances from the core of its phones and in creating industry leading energy efficiency chargers,” said Dick Komiyama, President, Sony Ericsson. “Today we are announcing the next step in our sustainability strategy – the GreenHeart™ pioneer products – which launch with two innovative new phones and a commitment to roll out these innovations across the broader portfolio in 2010 and 2011, allowing us to build a more sustainable business.”

Sony Ericsson will use the product innovations in its new GreenHeart™ pioneer products to ‘green’ its full product portfolio going forward with the aim of setting a new benchmark in sustainability for the entire mobile phone industry. The GreenHeart™ handsets will play a key role in Sony Ericsson’s newly invigorated product portfolio strategy.

“We are fully supportive of Sony Ericsson’s GreenHeart™ initiative because it is so closely aligned with Telefonica O2 UK’s own ambitions to make Sustainability central to our business strategy “, says Bill Eyres, Head of Corporate Responsibility, Environment and Sustainability at Telefonica O2 UK.  “We know from consumer insight that environmental issues, particularly climate change, are now a significant concern for our customers.  Furthermore, we also believe that operating more sustainably is a business opportunity, enabling us to function more efficiently and keep the Customer at the heart of all we do. “

“With growing public concern about climate change and increased competition for natural resources, TeliaSonera welcomes more “green” and sustainable choices for our customers like the new GreenHeart phones from Sony Ericsson”, says Indra Åsander, Senior Vice President and Head of Product Management in Mobility Services at TeliaSonera.   “Over the past two years we have seen an increase in “green-behaviour-change”  among our customers, such as using more communication services to reduce travel and the resulting CO² footprint. We believe this new initiative to move green behaviour into the mobile manufacturing process is one key step forward for the industry in responding to consumer demand”.

Nardono Nimpuno, Senior Policy Advisor, International Chemical Secretariat (ChemSec) added, “The GreenHeart™ project is confirmation of Sony Ericsson’s active engagement in the Chemsec Business Group and their extensive internal work on chemical management.  Through the GreenHeart™ project, with its high ambitions for sustainability and toxic use reduction initiatives, Sony Ericsson is striving for a leadership role in the field of corporate chemicals management.”

Q3 2009 will also see the continued roll out of Sony Ericsson’s global take-back programme which has been in operation since 2007. By allowing consumers to send back used mobile phones, the programme ensures that they do not end up in landfills but are sent to specialised mobile phone recycling centres. This means that both components and materials are used again, reducing the need to extract and refine raw materials for new products.
