Certification of Green Devices and Super Green Devices
Sharp calls its environmentally conscious devices Green Devices. To define guidelines for development and design based on seven concepts, such as low energy consumption and recyclability, Sharp established the Green Device Guidelines, which it began applying in fiscal 2004.
In fiscal 2005, it began certifying Green Devices with the highest possible levels of environmental performance as Super Green Devices.*
The Green Device Concept
Energy saving
    Reduce total power consumption and reduce power consumed in standby mode compared to previous models
Recyclability
    Use standard plastic or materials that are easy to separate and disassemble (target: LCD devices)
Green materials
    Control usage of chemical substances contained in parts and materials and use no substances prohibited under Sharp standards
Long life
    Extend the life of the product with exchangeable parts and consumables (target: LCD devices)
Packaging
    Reduce packaging materials
Information disclosure
    Provide information on chemical substances in devices
Resource saving
    Reduce weight or volume compared to previous models
* Certification standards for Green Devices and Super Green Devices: Green Devices must satisfy at least 90% or more of all 20 assessment items (nine of which are compulsory) listed in the Environmental Performance Criteria. Super Green Devices must satisfy at least 95% or more of the 20 assessment items (10 of which are compulsory) listed in the Environmental Performance Criteria. They must also either be No. 1 in the industry or the first in the industry in at least one item of the External Environmental Claim Standards.
