Motorola is no stranger to green product innovation. In 2009 we were the world’s first company to use recycled plastic to build a mobile phone. That same year we also introduced the world’s first Carbonfree® cell phone – the W233 Renew. And after continual development of carbon-neutral smartphones and mobile device accessories, Carbonfund.org Foundation gave us the For Planet and People Award in recognition of our commitment to sustainable practices.
To offset the carbon dioxide required to manufacture, distribute and operate some of our products, we got involved with several different types of projects including reforestation in different parts of the US and renewable energy creation from landfills. We’ve worked hard to make sure that more than just the phone is carbon neutral — the entire two-year working life, including use, is CarbonFree®!
“Motorola Mobility is pleased to have partnered with Carbonfund.org to bring CarbonFree mobile phone and accessory products to market and provide people with great products built with the planet in mind” said Bill Olson, Director of the Office Sustainability and Stewardship at Motorola Mobility.
