Oppo unveils latest sustainability achievements
Oppo is committed to implementing the internationally recognized “3R+1D” sustainable packaging principles, and sticks to reducing weight of packaging, reusing recycled materials, using recyclable and biodegradable materials in its packaging. Starting from the European market, in 2021, Oppo successfully reduced the amount of packaging used for its smartphone products by 24 percent compared with 2019 levels. Approximately 45 percent of this packaging was made by recycled fiber, and the overall plastic used in packaging of its smartphone products has been reduced by 95 percent since 2019.
To increase product durability, Oppo has introduced a self-developed Battery Health Engine. With this innovative technology, the battery capacity is maintained at as high as 80 percent after up to 1,600 charging-discharging cycles.
Oppo has already established a product recycling system, offering trade-in services in domestic and international markets to promote the recycling and reuse of used mobile phones. In China, more than 1.2 million phones have been recycled through the scheme to date, equal to more than 216 tons of electronic waste.
Alongside its own actions, Oppo has also been working closely with other partners to promote sustainability:
For two consecutive years, Oppo has partnered with National Geographic to support the protection of endangered species through the Oppo Endangered Color Campaign.
Oppo was one of the first to join the Eco Rating Labeling Scheme and perform well. The scheme is initiated by leading European mobile operators to evaluate the environmental performance of mobile phones in key areas: durability, reparability, recyclability, climate efficiency.
Apart from its efforts in environment protection, Oppo has long taken action to contribute to sustainable development, with focus on key areas including digital inclusion, health and wellbeing, and youth empowerment. For example, Oppo developed the Color Vision Enhancement feature which offers 766 display profiles, providing personalized solutions for people with color vision impairment. Oppo has long taken actions to empower young people. For three consecutive years, Oppo has also run its Renovators Emerging Artists Project, which provides a platform for creative young people to imagine how art and technology will intertwine in the future.
Later this month, Oppo will exhibit at MWC 2022 in Barcelona under the theme of “Shape the Future”. During MWC 2022, Oppo will showcase its innovative mobile technologies, latest achievements in AR and 5G, and success stories in sustainability.
