Eco design focus areas

1. HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES
We avoid hazardous substances and materials listed on the Atlas Copco Prohibited & declarable list.

2. MATERIALS
We use materials and structural features to minimize the product’s weight and invest in strong, durable materials to protect the product.

3. MIX AND MODULARITY
We avoid mixing materials since blends inhibit recycling and consider fastening methods to facilitate disassembly.

4. ENERGY
We consider how the final product will be used in order to minimize energy and resource consumption in the use phase, in production and during transportation.

5. REUSE AND RECYCLING
We design with recycling in mind. We promote repair and upgrading, especially for long lasting and system-dependent products. To increase the customer’s awareness regarding the importance of recycling, we are now including Recycling instructions in the Product information (PI).

6. INFORMATION TO CUSTOMER
We prepare for upgrading, maintenance and recycling, through labelling, modularization and information in the product information.

This is how we do Sustainable productivity in practice!
