Efficient use of material
Natural resources are increasingly becoming a scarcity. At the same time, the manufacturing of raw materials and components consume resources such as energy and water. For these reasons, a responsible approach towards materials is needed. Electrolux Professional recognizes the importance of using materials for as long as possible before they enter new material loops.
Electrolux Professional products are used frequently, by either professional businesses or user-operated within the sharing economy. By designing durable and long-lasting products, material efficiency can be increased. Electrolux Professional is investing in lifetime testing and quality assurance to verify that our products meet durability and reliability requirements.
During the product lifetime we offer a wide range of spare parts, services and aftermarket support that can help to prolong their lifespan. Maintenance and service can also help to assure efficiency and impacts from product use. With our service product Essentia, we secure standardized and harmonized Customer Care procedures across the globe.
Restricted Material List
Electrolux Professional has developed a restricted material list (RML) to facilitate use of non-hazardous and non-toxic substances in our materials and components. The requirements of the RML goes beyond legal requirements. All components and materials used are ROHS-free, meaning they do not contain any toxic substance prohibited under, or, if permissible, do not exceed certain levels set out in the RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU).
Electrolux Professional also meets the requirements under WEEE, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (2012/19/EU). As most of our products are designed for easy disassembly, include restrictions on hazardous and toxic materials and mainly contain recyclable materials, a large proportion of our products can be transferred into new material loops
