As part of its sustainability plan, Logitech has just announced an important milestone — the company’s gaming hardware product line, which is now fully carbon neutral. In a show of support for the Paris agreement, Logitech has long started environmental action and hopes to take the lead in the tech world. The carbon footprint of materials, design, manufacture, packaging, transportation and scrap recycling for all of the company’s gaming products has now been reduced to zero net emissions.

“For more than a decade, Logitech has been designing and delivering products that will help improve the world while minimizing its carbon footprint to the greatest extent possible,” said Bracken Darrell, Logitech’s chief executive.
As a small business that competes in the global marketplace, we appreciate the value of collaboration and today publicly commit to working together to create a more sustainable world.
We are aware that Logitech’s business growth has not affected the environment. Even with progress, our design work for sustainability is only just beginning.
It is reported that by working towards full carbon neutrality, the technology company has reduced carbon emissions by 17,000 tonnes at its Suzhou plant in China and used 75% of its renewable energy.
Of course, logonist is not the only game company committed to carbon neutrality. Software giant Microsoft, for example, is also promoting its environmentally friendly manufacturing philosophy through the Carbon Neutral Xbox project.
