At CommScope, we believe in pushing
the boundaries of technology to reduce our environmental footprint.
That’s why CommScope took a leading role in developing
a new landmark voluntary agreement with top service providers, manufacturers
and industry organizations in partnership with the CEEVA Steering
Committee, provincial governments, and leading utilities to improve the energy
efficiency of small network equipment (SNE) in Canada. Importantly, the voluntary agreement demonstrates our support of Canada’s shared
energy efficiency and climate change objectives.
CLICK TO TWEET: Damien O’Sullivan explains how CommScope is pushing the boundaries of technology to reduce its environmental footprint.
In a press release issued on Dec. 19, 2019, CEEVA Steering Committee announced
the launch of a new voluntary agreement to reduce the environmental impact of
SNE products in Canada. Under the new voluntary agreement, service providers
and manufacturers commit to improve the energy efficiency of devices such as
modems, gateways, wireless routers and other networking equipment. The
agreement ensures that 90 percent of new equipment will meet rigorous efficiency
levels beginning January 1, 2021. The voluntary agreement builds on the success
of a similar agreement for set-top boxes implemented in 2017, which has already
delivered significant energy efficiency successes.
“Our passion to push innovation in energy efficiency
is part of our design ethos at CommScope and partnering with countries who want
to drive a sustainable future is a natural fit for us,” said Livia Nascimento, Vice President, Sustainability
& Compliance, CommScope. “The Canadian
SNE voluntary agreement serves as a great tool to drive improved product energy
efficiency and gives us the freedom to innovate for the future.”
Our work with the Canadian SNE Voluntary Agreement is
a natural extension of our approach to product development and sustainability,
as our customers look to us as enablers of environmental conservation. CommScope
continues to provide technical leadership to help establish these important
industry agreements, and we regularly collaborate with our customers around the
world to continually reduce our industry’s environmental footprint.
