TÜV RHEINLAND AWARDS PRODUCT CARBON FOOTPRINT CERTIFICATION FOR HISENSE LASER TV
Hisense, a leader in global consumer electronics and appliances, has been granted carbon footprint verification for its PL1 Laser TV product from TÜV Rheinland, a leading provider of technical services worldwide. This certification was granted in accordance with the ISO 14067:2018 standard, which specifies principles, requirements and guidelines for the quantification and reporting of the carbon footprint of a product.
Sold locally in the Australian market – named the PL1H – the certification is a credit to Hisense’s commitment to sustainability. To support this, Hisense developed a ‘Product Carbon Footprint’ (PCF) accounting boundary that encompassed raw material acquisition and pre-treatment, product manufacturing, distribution, use, and waste recycling stages. This was developed in accordance with the latest international carbon footprint standards, with TÜV Rheinland assisting Hisense in calculating and certifying the carbon footprint of the PL1H product throughout its entire lifecycle.
By analysing the carbon emissions at the various stages of the product lifecycle, Hisense has been able to more intuitively identify the high emission “Hotspots” throughout the overall production process. As a result, Hisense was able to examine the impact of each stage on the environment from the product perspective, allowing the company to prepare product optimisation plans more effectively, while evaluating energy management, lifecycle analysis, raw materials and supply chain management.
The PL1H meets the growing demand for adaptability in accommodating a variety of home theatre experiences. It features the pioneering X-Fusion laser technology, which uses a precise source to deliver sharper images and offers the versatility of picture sizes ranging from 80 to 120 inches, allowing customers to tailor their screen perfectly to their space.
The PCF result of the Hisense PL1H refers to excellent quality, with all primary materials considered and calculated with “company-specific data”, before being individually modelled.
The PL1H is available in Australia, priced at MSRP $3,299.
