Building a Recycling Society
│Approach and Policy
Casio pursues product development with consideration for environmental impact throughout the product lifecycle, from the product development and design stage, to use by customers, to disposal and recycling after use.
Casio began its own product assessment program in 1993, commencing assessment of the environmental impact of new products and certifying those that met certain standards as Casio Green Products This process produced a large number of environmentally friendly products.
In 2009, Casio began its program to certify Casio Green Star Products under more rigorous assessment standards. In 2016, a further program to certify Casio Super Green Star Products under even higher assessment standards was also commenced. Since then, Casio has continued to develop products with consideration for environmental impact.
