Packaging a small package makes a big difference

Between 2005 and 2010 we reduced the packaging size of most affordable devices by over 70%. This amounts to 240,000 tonnes of saved paper.

Excluding chargers from the sales box- NOKIA 6700

May 2010, Nokia started selling the Nokia 6700 slide also

without a charger . 25% smaller package comparatively Excluding the charger from the sales box also enables reductions in both energy consumption in the production phase and in the end-of-life treatment needs.

Facing up to challenges across supply chain

There are typically four to eight supplier layers between Nokia and

any mining activities. Despite this complexity, they are actively working on increasing transparency to improve the overall traceability of metals and minerals.

Since 2001, nokia demanded written assurance from suppliers to

ensure products do not contain tantalum derived from coltan originating in conflict areas (such as the eastern parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo). Nokia have expanded this practice to certain other suppliers who provide components containing tungsten (from wolframite) and suppliers of tin solder (from cassiterite).

Energy efficiency
Over the last decade, Nokia have reduced the average

no-load energy consumption of chargers by over 80%, and best-in-class chargers by over 95%. Nokia was the first mobile manufacturer to put alerts into devices encouraging people to unplug their chargers, and are rolling these alerts out across other device range.

All new Nokia chargers are specified to meet the criteria of

voluntary agreements such as the EU Code of Conduct and US Environmental Protection Agencys Energy Star and the highest four and five star criteria of EU IPP.

Nokia facilities: energy, emissions and environmental certifications

Nokia facilities consumed in 2008 69 GWh of direct and 592 GWh of indirect energy. This energy consumption caused 14 700 tons of direct and 218 000 tons of indirect greenhouse gas (CO2e) emissions.

Direct energy means usage of gas and oil and indirect energy usage of electricity, district heating and district cooling in Nokia facilities.

In addition to CO2e emissions caused by energy usage, direct greenhouse gas emissions include greenhouse gas warming potential caused by HFCrefrigerants. In 2008 nokia purchased 25 % of electricity from renewables by buying renewable electricity certificates in Finland (RES-E Guarantee of Origin) and Americas (Green-e wind). Without Nokias purchase of certified green energy, the above mentioned indirect emissions would have been greater by 46 700 tons.

All of Nokia Siemens Networks production sites are

included in the scope of the ISO 14001 certification Nokia Siemens Networks supports the move by the World Health Organization to harmonize global regulations on electromagnetic fields based on the widely recognized guidelines issued by the International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). Nokia Siemens Networks electromagnetic field specialists are members of scientific organizations including the Bioelectromagnetics Society and the European Bioelectromagnetics Association, and participate in relevant scientific events. Nokia Siemens Networks announced in 2008 that renewable energy will be the first choice for installed remote base station sites by 2011

In 2010 Nokia ranked first in the whole global technology

sector on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. Nokia were also one of the three leading companies for both the disclosure and performance rankings of the Carbon Disclosure Project.
Nokia is at the forefront of this change, and are leading by

example, cutting own carbon emissions and working with suppliers to design more efficient systems.
Nokia also help consumers find ways to reduce thei own

carbon footprints and enjoy the wider benefits of sustainable lifestyles.

REDUCING FACILITY EMISSIONS. Nokia reached and exceeded targets to reduce facility related CO2 emissions by 10% in 2009 and 18% in 2010 compared to 2006 level.
INCREASING ENERGY EFFICIENCY . Nokia created 8% of new energy savings in technical building maintenance systems between 2007 and

2010, in addition to the savings of 3.5% already achieved from 2003 to 2006. GREEN ELECTRICITY PURCHASING is an ongoing challenge Nokia are committed to tackling. Nokia have been increasing the purchase of green electricity since 2006 and are currently encountering slower than expected renewable energy market . REDUCI NG OWN EMISSIONS ACROSS THE DEVICE S LIFE CYCLE Aspirational target is to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions caused during the whole device life cycle by over 60% by the year 2020 compared to the level in 2000.


Use of recycled metals, bio-plastics and bio-paints in product devices. Nokia C7-00 bio-paints

Nokia C6-01 is the first to use recycled metals. Nokia phones: 100% of the materials in Nokia devices can be used again to make new products or generate energy. That means nothing needs to go to landfill. Firs t company to join the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Save our Species project, which calls on businesses to help build the biggest global species conservation fund by 2015. Nokia believes business has a role in safeguarding the rich variety of life on earth, and is proud to be the first company to join the project.

climate strategy target Nokia reduced the average chargers no-load power consumption 50% percent by the end of 2010 (2006 baseline) Nokia reached and exceeded targets to reduce facility related CO 2 emissions by 10% in 2009 and 18% in 2010 (2006 baseline) 2. Cr eating a Human Rights approach and metrics Nokias first Human Rights approach and metrics are being developed based on Corporate Human Rights Impact Assessment and the outcomes of the interindustry Nokia Human Rights Summit.


Making Nokia Data Gathering open source Introducing industry firsts in sustainable materials first to use recycled metals, bio-plastics and biopaints in our top devices partnering with the International Union for Conservation of Nature on the Save our Species (SOS) project.

Granting our first Supplier Sustainability Award As part commitment to working with suppliers to build capacity, Nokia has been awarded first annual Supplier Sustainability Award. Adjusting to green energy availability energy market development. Gaining better traceability to origins of raw materials Nokia has a ban on sourcing raw materials from all conflict areas including the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The traceability of minerals has been a challenge. The situation was improved with the start of the third-party smelter audit program by Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) where Nokia is an active participant.

8 Creating a recycling culture across the globe and in the EU Part of take-back and recycling programs is raising awareness with consumers to create a recycling culture. Nokia continue to face huge variations in the success rates achieved between EU countries and increasing the take-back amount is an ongoing challenge

Awareness initiative by Nokia

Design for the environment Understanding impact from start to finish

Nokia uses an externally audited Life Cycle Assessment

(LCA) methodology to calculate the environmental impact of products and processes. Assessing energy efficiency, sustainable use of materials and smart, sustainable packaging. The LCA methodology of Nokias Eco Profile for products was audited during the spring of 2010. In 2009, published the life cycle assessment of a typical Nokia mobile device. This assessment measures the energy use across the entire life cycle of the device .
