devolo green IT – Responsible and sustainable
devolo insists on environmentally compatible development and production. Practising sustainable manufacturing. Conserving resources. Saving energy. Being in business means accepting responsibility. devolo has done exactly that since its founding in 2002.
As the market leader, we not only strive to develop innovative products, but also implement sustainable environmental policies. With the new "Follow Green" logo, we want to help you select the suitable product in light of complex issues such as environmental compatibility and safety.
Saving energy. PowerSave 90% less.
devolo's intelligent PowerSave technology provides energy savings of 90 percent – completely automatically. The patented energy saving mode detects whether the computer connected to the powerline adapter is switched on or off and adapts the operating status of the adapter accordingly. Brilliantly simple – simply brilliant. Moreover, products with the PowerSave logo have the lowest energy consumption in their market segment.
Conserving resources. Highly recyclable.
devolo's products with the Highly Recyclable logo are made using a high percentage of recycled materials. Plastics, for example, can be reused, conserving resources. All of the products that carry this logo contain the highest amount of recycled materials in their market segment. When disposal is carried out according to applicable regulations, all Highly Recyclable products are themselves recyclable to a high degree.
Taking responsibility. Active waste management.
Already today, devolo is thinking about the future. Each product should be recycled optimally at the end of its service life. To master this challenge, certain questions must be answered: which future-oriented materials can be used? What does a device configuration look like in the context of natural recycling management? For this reason, devolo is an active participant in funds established for the purpose of sustainable, responsible disposal of product components.
Practising sustainable manufacturing. RoHS compliant.
Even during product development, devolo insists on a sustainable choice of materials. The company's products are made of state-of-the art, environmentally compatible plastics and electronic components. In accordance with the EU directive, devolo products do not contain any hazardous substances.
Green power. With the devolo photovoltaic system.
In 2012, a photovoltaic system was installed on the roof of devolo AG headquarters. The photovoltaic system covers approximately 22 % of the electricity used by devolo AG with an average power generation of approximately 4,100 kWh per month. Thus, devolo also assumes responsibility directly on site.
Green Hosting. Europe's greenest data processing centre.
The devolo online shop is run by Europe's greenest data processing centre. The operation of the data processing centre infrastructure saves up to 66 % energy. Hydropower is used for cooling and green electricity is used exclusively. Despite these environmentally friendly measures, full server performance and the highest availability are still in place.
