NEC is helping the environment by:
  • Being a Plug In to eCycling partner
  • Being a leader in the display category
  • Requiring all its recycling facilities to be certified to meet EPA standards/guidelines
  • Participating in an environmental/recycling event with local retailers
  • Plug-In To eCycling
    Plug-In To eCycling is a consumer electronics campaign working to increase the number of electronic devices collected and safely recycled in the United States. Launched in January 2003, Plug-In To eCycling is one component of EPA's Resource Conservation Challenge (RCC), a national effort to find flexible, yet more protective ways to conserve our valuable resources. It is also part of EPA's Product Stewardship Program.
    Plug-In To eCycling focuses on three major areas:
  • Providing the public with information about electronics recycling and increasing opportunities to safely recycle old electronics
  • Facilitating partnerships with communities, electronics manufacturers and retailers to promote shared responsibility for safe electronics recycling
  • Establishing pilot projects to test innovative approaches to safe electronics recycling
  • ENERGY STARĀ®
    NEC Display Solutions is one of the contributors helping in the development and revision of the current ENERGY STAR program for desktop displays and helped to create the specification for large-format commercial displays.
