Green Product

Responsible Production and Consumption

Getac integrates the concept of green products into the entire product life cycle, from the acquisition of raw materials, research and development, production and manufacturing, transportation and distribution, to consumer use and the recycling and reuse of end products. Through design, Getac aims to achieve maximum value through effective reuse. The company implements various measures such as reduce, reuse, recycle, and recovery to mitigate its environmental impact.
Our research and development team is also committed to practicing environmental stewardship through the power of technology. This includes developing low-energy consumption products to achieve energy savings and emissions reduction. We are also gradually increasing the incorporation of Post Consumer plastic (PCR), which is recycled plastic, in the raw materials for plastic casing products. This helps reduce the usage of new materials and moves us towards a circular economy approach.

Restriction of Hazardous Substances

Getac Kunshan, which specializes in the assembly of rugged computing products, has incorporated the IECQ QC 080000 Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM) system for electrical and electronic components and products and complies with international directives for environmental protection, including the REACH, Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC ), and RoHS, to prevent the use of materials, parts, or products containing a hazardous substance which would otherwise impact the ecosystem.

The quality assurance division inspects incoming materials from eligible suppliers. In 2022, all incoming materials passed inspection, with no hazardous substances found. Products produced by automotive plants are die-casting metal parts composed of aluminum alloys and are not end products.

Better Than International Environmental Protection And Safety Standards

All electronic products from Getac has passed international safety standard certifications, complying with the safety requirements for electronic products, wireless radio frequency, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and other regulations in the shipping countries. This includes certifications such as UL and FCC in the United States, CE in the European Union, BSMI in Taiwan, among others. They also label relevant safety, environmental, energy-saving, and communication certifications on the products or packaging in accordance with the regulatory requirements of the shipping region. There were no incidents of non-compliance with product labeling.
In addition, Getac are designed to meet the specific safety requirements of industries such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and oil. Some models have obtained proactive certifications for high-specification safety standards, such as ATEX/IECEx Zone 0, 20, UL913 (Class I/ II Division 1).

Raw Material Low Cardon Design

As one of the world's leading manufacturers of rugged computers, the products produced by our subsidiary Getac Technology (GTC) are widely used by the government agencies of all countries and large international corporations. Our rugged solution not only provide superior ruggedness but also equipped with high performing endurance and the energy-saving design conforms to the latest international energy saving design and specification requirements, such as Energy Star 8.0 and energy performance regulations enforced by the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the California Energy Commission., etc., and is verified according to the requirements of Energy Star through Design Quality Verification (DQA) Department, to ensure low energy consumption design specifications and allow users to save a large amount of unnecessary energy consumption.
The energy consumption of products from GTC, which are certified with ENERGY STAR®, has been tested in the laboratory, and the actual measured values are all lower than the required standard values specified in the reports. The average power consumption of the thirteen main models sold by Getac in 2022 is lower than the standard value of Energy Star by 4.96 (KWh/yr). After multiplying this by the number of units sold in the year, it is estimated that the rugged computers sold by GTC in 2022 could save the Earth approximately 706.48 MWh per year, equivalent to 360 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. (Referring to Taiwan Power Company's information, the carbon emission factor is calculated at 0.502 kg CO2e/KWh). Demonstrate Getac's efforts and achievements in energy-saving design.

Easy Disassembly & Recycling

Getac's electronic products comply with WEEE requirements. On the packaging of each of our products, we state that the products are made from recycled materials and provide instructions on how to dismantle each product. We also commission local certified vendors in European regions to recycle our products. When recycling our products, they can be easily disassembled for re-use, which reduces resource waste. Furthermore, Getac products are designed according to Energy-related Products (EuP) directives and Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) standards.
