LAUSANNE, Switzerland & NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Logitech International (SIX: LOGN) (Nasdaq: LOGI), an award-winning design company and maker of cloud peripheral products, is extending its commitment to future generations by setting ambitious sustainability goals for its products, packaging, and operations. Today, Logitech unveils its support of the Paris Agreement, pledging to limit its carbon footprint to support the ambitious 1.5°C goal and for the company to be powered exclusively by renewable electricity by 2030.

For more than a decade, Logitech has actively worked to minimize our climate footprint while designing and delivering products that help better the world. As a small company playing in a global market, we appreciate the value of collaboration, and today we are publically committing to being part of global efforts to co-create a more sustainable world,” said Bracken Darrell, president and CEO of Logitech. “We recognize that Logitech’s growth does not come without an environmental impact and, while we have made progress, we have only just begun our efforts in designing for sustainability.”

Designing For Sustainability

The biggest opportunities to reduce a product’s environmental impact come early in the design process when key decisions about a product are made. Logitech’s teams across all business groups are integrating environmental impact assessments into new product designs, alongside cost, customer experience, manufacturing, and technical innovation. Each category is exploring how product materials are sourced, assembled, shipped, used and, ultimately, disassembled and recycled. Already the company has converted to sustainable packaging on multiple new Logitech G and MX Master 3 products, started to introduce recycled plastic in its mice, keyboards, and webcams, and removed PVC from new product cables and feasible external parts.

As an award-winning design company, we are making a pledge to future generations that we will use our leadership in design not only to create a great customer experience but to do so in a way that is sustainable for the planet,” continued Darrell. “We want to leave our mark on the future. We know that mark can be positive or negative, depending on the large and small decisions we make every day.”
