In early 2005, the EU Commission announced its Energy Using Product Directive (EuP), which set limits on energy use in a product's entire lifecycle. Compared with two EU directives before, WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), and RoHS (Restrictions on Hazardous Substances), EuP would bring wider impact on products produced and sold in Europe and the world in total.
henrich is always committed to its green design mission since its establishment, and quickly responded to the new regulation by reinforcing green design from product design, procurement, manufacturing, transport, sale, use to disposal of the product.
concise design-----while ensuring product functionality and performance, reduce the physical dimensions of products to minimize the use of materials; reduce the techniques such as electroplating, printing, and bronzing, and use texture mapping instead; simple package design to minimize material use.
Re-use-----Greater durability of products; Modular design and component standardization to reduce frequency of structure change.
recycling-----use recyclable materials and avoid the use of hazardous substances; use homogenous materials, and mark each type of material and its lifetime to facilitate recycling; use the snap-fit design whenever possible to reduce the use of screws. replace polystyrene foam with natural materials or paper materials for product packaging; reduce the use of printing ink; adopt economic transporting mode, and use recyclable pallets during transportation.
