Hazardous Substances Management

Don’t Allow the Invisible Chemical Killers Threaten the Earth & Your Health

When the economic activities increase, hazardous substances increase as well. A large proportion of the environmental pollution comes from chemical substances, which not only damage the ecology but attack human health as well.

Prevention Before Damage

Based on becoming environmentally friendly and advancing the concept of sustainable development commitments, BenQ pays close attention to related researches on the possible hazards posed by chemical substances in products.If it is confirmed that a substance would cause irreversible hazards on the ecosystem or human health, BenQ would place a ban on using the substance; if there is no scientific evidence, but we believe the substance may be harmful, BenQ will also take the precautionary principle to temporarily disable or reduce the use of the substance, and seek for alternatives.

Environment-Related Substances Management

All BenQ products have to meet Hazardous Substances Guideline (SUP-QM-07-02) which covers EU RoHS Directive and other legal and voluntary regimes. In 2009, we managed following items:

  • Hg: to install LED lighting source to replace traditional CCFL and raise the quantities of LED products year by year.
  • As: to adopt arsenic free glass substrate in each product line
  • BFR: to use BFR-free plastics (>25g) in all products
  • PVC: to use PVC-free packaging and mechanical plastic parts in all products
  • Phthalate: to ban specified Phthalates in all products
