Orange factoring in environmental impact, from design to recycling
From eco-design to recycling, and everything in between, Orange fully incorporates environmental issues. As a carrier we’ve been working on this with our partners for 15 years.
Let’s use the Livebox 5 product as an example. From its design to its recycling, special care is taken from an environmental perspective, including recovering precious metals, using recycled plastic shells and incorporating simplified electronic architecture. Orange also ensures that the components to be recycled are recovered in the right channels and conducts regular studies to measure the equipment’s energy consumption, durability and reparability. Orange is also working on the knowledge of components, to make them more robust and consume less energy.
In terms of results, studies show that the Livebox 5, for example, emitted 30% less CO2 over its entire life cycle.
