To drive industry-wide carbon reduction, Logitech is sharing its design
principles and tools with any organizations in the consumer-tech industry
looking to boost their sustainability efforts.
Today, Logitech announced that all of its
that run on the
operating system will now be manufactured with next-life plastics. Existing
products Rally Bar, Rally Bar Mini, Tap IP, Tap Scheduler and
Scribe are being refreshed with materials that lower the carbon impact of
“By transitioning our portfolio of conference room devices to a lower product
carbon footprint, we are helping other companies navigate their sustainability
challenges,” said Logitech COO Prakash
Arunkundrum. “We’re not only
designing and manufacturing new products with recycled plastic and other
lower-carbon materials, but refreshing existing products to provide IT leaders
with a new way to evaluate their workplace technology investment in conference
room systems — one that includes people and planet. We do this without
increasing prices or compromising the highest quality and performance companies
expect from Logitech.”
Reducing negative environmental impact has rapidly become a business imperative.
In a recent survey of IT professionals by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan, 65
percent say that becoming a leader in ESG and sustainability
is a critical or very important business objective in the coming year.
Applying Logitech’s Design for
(DfS) principles to its video-collaboration portfolio means that Logitech
customers can outfit entire conference rooms — including Microsoft Teams
rooms and Zoom rooms — with technology designed with sustainability in mind.
This development expands on the same improvements already implemented in
personal workstation peripherals including webcams, headsets, mice and

This event brings together hundreds of brand leaders eager to delve into radical lifestyle shifts and sustainable consumer behavior change at scale. The trends driving cultural acceleration are already underway, and you can be at the forefront of this transformative movement.
A key tenet of DfS is the use of circular materials that can be recovered from
the waste stream and given a second life, including post-consumer recycled
plastics (PCR) that Logitech calls “next-life plastics.”
Newer conference room products such as Logitech Sight use:
Minimum of 50 percent certified recycled plastic
21 percent reduction in carbon footprint (compared to a ‘doing nothing’
1,400tCO2e avoided carbon per 100,000 units (enough to drive around the
Earth approximately 131 times†)
Logitech video-conferencing products now have:
Low-carbon aluminum made with renewable energy, rather than fossil fuels
Packaging from FSC®-certified forests and other controlled sources
100 percent recycled fabrics in the Rally Bar family
Option to collect and recycle old video-conferencing equipment via Logitech
Power-saving modes that can potentially reduce Rally Bar and Rally Bar
Mini’s carbon impact by 1.65 tons of CO2 equivalent*
Increasing the amount of recycled and next-life materials in its products is the latest step Logitech is taking to decrease their footprint and increase their circularity — in May 2023, the company partnered with global repair community iFixit to extend the useful life of its products by increasing availability of spare parts, supporting beyond-warranty repair on select products, and developing relevant guides to support these repairs.
Logitech says DfS has helped it decrease its Scope 3
by 21 percent, pushing it toward its goal of removing more carbon than it
To drive carbon reduction at an even bigger scale and stimulate industry-wide
progress, Logitech is openly sharing its DfS principles, tools and knowledge of
how to incorporate more sustainable materials in the manufacturing process with
any organizations in the consumer-tech industry looking to boost their

As more companies hold themselves accountable for measurably reducing their
carbon impact, they increasingly seek out technology vendors who provide
transparency via key performance indicators, reporting and third-party
certifications. Logitech — which in 2020 became the first consumer electronics
company to provide detailed carbon-impact
on product packaging — says it is on track to achieve its 2025 target of having
a product carbon footprint for every product in its portfolio, making it easier
for company technology buyers to make informed decisions about — and report on —
the scope of their impact when outfitting their global workforces for meeting
rooms, personal workstations, flex desking, etc.
