THE BLUE ANGEL DIRECTIVE
Founded in 1977 by the German Ministry of Ecology, Blue Angel is the oldest Environmental certification in the world. It is based on an extensive set of criteria, such as taking recycling into account when designing products, the reduction of pollution during manufacturing, cutting back on energy consumption, chemical emissions, and noise. Blue Angel also takes IT materials (e.g. computers) EOL into consideration. Always respectful of users and their environment, nearly all Triumph-Adler systems have received the Blue Angel eco-label certification.
