TCL reinforces its green commitments
with the launch of #TCLGreen global initiative

#TCLGreen is a global initiative by TCL to Inspire Greatness and support efforts to create a greener planet for all. This tagline applies globally to help amplify the significance of sustainability efforts to local and global communities.

TCL is committed to the search for more responsible solutions by integrating the #TCLGreen concept into all aspects of its business and putting the consumers in the heart of our strategy. Through concrete commitments and its integrated vertical model, TCL aims to reduce its environmental impact and promote greener manufacturing.
Our commitments
At TCL, we don’t just deliver endless entertainment and smart home appliances. Our commitment extends well beyond.

Today, making the earth a better place to live through responsible environmental stewardship is of critical importance. That’s why we are taking comprehensive steps in every area of our operations, to ensure a sustainable future. We are committed to the search for more responsible solutions, and for even more reliable and sustainable products, by allocating dedicated resources to research and development.

TCL products meet or exceed environmental regulations. We create energy-efficient products that promote much-needed energy sobriety in these times and help consumers save energy.

Moreover we continue to enhance oversight of the manufacturing process to remove hazardous substances, keep conflict minerals out of our supply chain, advocate green packaging and increase the volume and quality of our electronics recycling programs.

TCL wants to make its environmental commitments and actions more central to its strategy, so that it can play a truly useful and effective role in preserving the planet. In order to reinforce and pursue our commitment to the preservation of the planet, we have fixed objectives for the manufacture of our products by 2025:

TCL's commitments by 2025
  • 18% Less Green House Gas Emission
  • 27% Less Water Consumption
  • 13% Less Power Consumption
  • 70% Less Natural Gas Consumption
  • 10% Less EPS Consumption

TCL for green energy
Investment in the photovoltaics sector to produce cleaner and greener energy
At TCL, we are invested in the photovoltaics sector to produce cleaner and greener energy to help reduce greenhouse emissions.

The global photovoltaic market continues to improve, with an intensified competition in the silicon wafer industry worldwide, but it is estimated that TCL's installation capacity will reach 225GW in 2022 and its product strength and operational strength will become some key differentiators in the market.

TCL’s photovoltaic materials are already exported to more than 60 countries and regions, including Europe, Australia, South Korea, Japan and other countries.

TCL first released proprietary G12 monocrystalline silicon wafers, a technology which has the advantages of high power, high efficiency, high reliability, etc., which effectively reduces LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) and facilitates clean energy.

In the future, TCL will adopt a global strategy to focus on large-scale solar plants and the DG (distributed generator) market. The company will continue to strengthen its own advantages, continue to increase the scale of production, reduce investment in unit equipment, and improve efficiency through technological innovation.

TCL’s goal is to become a leading brand in the global DG market, and to become one of the best component manufacturers for reducing LCOE in the global Utility Power Plant market.

TCL for green packaging
Taking the environmental dimension of our packaging a step further

The aim of TCL Electronics is to use harmless, pollution-free, renewable and green packaging materials instead of plastic packaging materials, but also wood packaging materials to provide more modern, economical, durable and green packaging solutions. In addition, the paper packaging materials we use can lessen the weight and volume of our products, increase the number of containers, and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation of goods. We require the suppliers to properly recycle and reuse the packaging paper cartons, cardboards and plastic turnover boxes when providing raw materials and products to the Company, which effectively reduces the consumption and waste of packaging materials.

We’ve always designed our packaging with safety, fit, products caring, and the environment in mind but in 2022 we’ve challenged ourselves to go above environment requirements and recycling regulations. From now on, we have decided to design and use only kraft packaging without glossy effect and too many colours to avoid using glue but also to limit ourselves to one white ink colour to ensure less or no chemical pigments are used.

TCL Eco-Rating
Promoting a circular economy that closes the loop
"TCL Communication is a supporting mobile supplier of the pan-industry Eco Rating labelling scheme, created and launched by five of Europe's leading mobile operators. Many other industry-leading operators are now joining the Eco Rating assessment program.

The stringent eco-rating evaluation system assesses devices' different environmental indicators (e.g. carbon footprint or resource depletion) and material efficiency criteria, resulting in an overall score from 1 to 100. The closer the score is to 100, the better the sustainability performance of the device

Through these requirements, expectations, and European regulations, the ultimate goal is to help customers make informed and sustainable choices while encouraging suppliers to reduce the environmental impact of their devices.

With this industry alignment to improve transparency and reduce the environmental footprint, we promote a circular economy that closes the loop."

TCL EcoVadis
One of the world's most trusted business sustainability ratings services
For the past ten years, TCL has been assessed by one of the world's most trusted business sustainability rating services, EcoVadis. These rating endeavours to cover a broad range of non-financial management systems, including Environmental, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement impacts.

For the past several years, TCL Communication has humbly ranked highly by communication equipment manufacturers and suppliers assessed by EcoVadis, resulting in consecutive Silver ratings awarded to TCL since 2018.

Democratizing innovation is our number one priority, bringing incredible devices at affordable prices. But we can't achieve those goals at the cost of the environment. We remain committed to improving our score every year and look forward to taking every step to strengthen our impact on the planet.
