SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENT
A company, no matter how large or small, cannot function without keeping in mind the impact its products and services have on the environment and communities that sustain their business.
AOC stands as a seasoned corporation that understands the importance of creating products that fit into the digital lifestyles of today’s consumers, but does so by creating packaging out of recyclable material and engineering products that consume less power than ever before. Today’s advances in technology allow for the manufacturing of incredibly powerful, crystal clear and thin displays that consume only a fraction of the power their much bulkier and fuzzier counterparts once consumed.
AOC is leading the way in developing environmentally friendly product materials, while still keeping its promise to consumers that products baring the AOC brand will be of the highest quality in both performance and design.
“Advances in display technology should not be setbacks for our environment. We take great pride in offering Energy Star certified products and launching new technologies, such as our ultra-thin WLED displays, that offer improved performance, while requiring fewer materials for development and less energy for use.”
The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) is a system based on original IEEE 1680 - 2006 (from Jan 2019 new version IEEE 1680.1-2018) environmental performance standard to evaluate how green the electronic products are. Currently, EPEAT covers desktop computers, notebooks, and monitors.
Recognizing the environmental impacts become growingly essential, both purchasers and manufacturers are seeking for standard environmental rules to define a green product. EPEAT meets the needs of both parties. With its standard criteria, purchasers can compare products while manufacturers know how to get green with their products design. The products with EPEAT logo are considered as green product for reducing the environmental impact.
We want to improve people’s quality of life through meaningful innovation and we aim to achieve that by using our planet’s limited resources in a sustainable way. This calls for continuous work on the environmental performance of our products. Used AOC monitors and related packaging materials are recycled in accordance with all environmental laws. To get there, we work with various organizations.
