Consumers are demanding competitively priced products that are of appropriate quality and are environmentally responsible.
NAS Australia recoginses that to operate successfully in to the future it is imperative that we operate in a sustainable manner. Our products must collectively satisfy economic, environmental and social aspects simultaneously. With this goal in mind, we have been working to reduce the
environmental impacts of our operations and products, commencing with a voluntary product stewardship scheme for our NextWave Digital range of set-top-boxes (STB) and personal video recorders (PVR).
As the majority of a product’s environmental impact is determined early in the product design process, NAS has improved the efficiency of resource use in products including but not limited to:
To attempt to refurbish the item first; thus reducing waste through rebirth; and
If the returned unit is unfit for rebirth, NAS Australia technicians will strip the STB or PVR, sending the housing, PCB and power supply to certified e-waste recyclers.
