JPL is very conscious of the world around us and we aim to continuously reduce the amount of waste and pollution produced through the manufacture of our products. We aim to be responsible for our global community and minimise our negative impact on the world. Taking the phrase reduce, reuse, recycle very seriously.
The development of headsets and webcams for us was more than connectivity. Every online conference, meeting or call, saves on carbon emissions from travelling. Protecting our atmosphere and world health, something the UC industry has had a positive effect on. UC technology eliminates the need for travelling round trips to communicate with colleagues and friends. Reducing our overall footprint.
With this philosophy, we are aiming to reduce the amount of packaging for our products. To help decrease the amount of waste, as well as saving space within the master carton when shipping the goods. Our bubble bags are a perfect example of this, getting more product for less distribution. For what packaging we cannot reduce we are looking at changing to more renewable materials. Changing plastic for biodegradable options or using paper or cardboard instead.
Our Element range of headsets have been specifically designed to extend the life of the headset and reduce e-waste. Because of the modular design, if a speaker, microphone or headband breaks (out of warranty), you only need to replace half of the headset (one part). Increasing the life of the headset, decreasing the cost of ownership and reducing the amount that has to be thrown away.
At our Dorset base, we recycle as much as we can, encouraging all staff members to do what they can at work and at home. All in-coming boxes are reused, so your orders may come packaged in obscure boxes, but rest assured that the products inside are of the quality you know and expect from JPL.
We aim to use technology to help us stay sustainable by reducing our overall use of paper. We have online manuals, datasheets, and information for all our products rather than including them within every product box, saving the trees one step at a time. However, we are aware of how much paper we do use within the company. Our goal over the next few years is to plant more trees around our local area in Dorset to give back to nature and the community.
