Green Marketing

Taking advantage of both online and storefront channels, Zyxel, the Unizyx subsidiary, is able to offer products through Web stores without warehouse or shelf, and to interact with real customers in both ways. This not only lowers marketing expense but also causes less environmental impact when comparing to physical channels.

Zyxel also strive to communicate the idea of "green" products with customers in a series of marketing activities and offerings by means of responsive after-sale services. The objective of such activities is to elevate customer awareness and willingness to consider green products, while the experience with green products is expected to promote more environment-friendly purchasing decisions and business practices.

 

Product Carbon Footprint

  • Carbon Footprint Mark

 

In order to facilitate the prevalence of green products and concepts, Unizux's subsidiary Zyxel Communications always ensures that all its products are marked clearly with international "Green" marks to stress its commitment to environment-aware marketing directions and policies.

With the international community placing a growing emphasis on disclosing carbon footprint information, we had already started a carbon emission calculation of our products, including each stage of a product's lifecycle from raw material, manufacturing, delivering, consumer usage, discarding, and then to recycling. The product carbon footprint discourse has been granted a carbon footprint label by Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) in Taiwan. And we are among the first group of Taiwan companies to achieve this distinction, and is also the first networking equipment maker to receive this honor.

 

  • Carbon Footprint Certificate

Unizux's subsidiary MitraStar Technology's three products – EPON CPE、GPON CPE and VDSL CPE – have received the carbon footprint certification.

In addition to providing customers with high-quality, reliable network equipment, MitraStar upholds the concept of sustainable developments and environment-friendly products.

To create a comprehensive, earth-friendly green product supply chain, MitraStar starts the "Green Supply Chain Carbon Cloud" plan in 2015 to provide the networking industry with common standards and evaluation tools with which supplier carbon footprint information can be systematically and automatically collected.

In the meantime, MitraStar also leads the industry to establish a low-carbon supply chain industry index for reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions generated by the supply chain; the company also rectifies its business development strategy for sustainable environmental-friendliness, energy-saving and carbon reduction, so the supply chain can implement and commit to the actions required for Paris COP21.
