Green Technology for Sustainable Development, Hisense Contributes to Achieving Carbon Neutrality
29 October 2021
The COP26 Summit formally began with the gathering of 200 countries discussing actions to protect and restore ecosystems. Driven by green technology, Hisense continues to integrate environmental protection initiatives in all aspects of manufacturing, supply chain, and developing energy-saving products.
Since 2018, Hisense reduced HFC-245fa through technology innovation, reformed its refrigerator production using foaming technology and lowered greenhouse emissions. As a result, it decreased approximately 5847.3 tons of CO2 emissions. Furthermore, in 2021, United Nations Development Program(UNDP) publicly appraised the technology as an eco-leader in the fridge industry.
More Energy Saving
Hisense has now lowered the power consumption of a 100-inch Laser TV to around 250 watts, while the LCD TV of the same size has a power consumption of more than 800 watts. In the future, Hisense will reduce the energy consumption of 100-inch Laser TV to under 200 watts.
Hisense strictly follows the principles of energy conservation and environmental protection at all stages, from raw material selection to production and processing. For example, when Hisense manufactures a new series of TVs, it optimizes the overall heat dissipation system of the TV, reduces the thickness of the back cover of the TV, and saves 4,626 tons of plastic each year, which is equivalent to reducing the use of 514 million plastic bags.
