  • (1888PressRelease) September 06, 2016 - The "Green Product Mark Cooperation Agreement Signing Ceremony" was successfully held between TUV Rheinland Group (hereafter referred to as "TUV Rheinland"), the world-renowned independent testing, inspection and certification organization, and the Huawei Group at the Huawei Connect 2016 conference. Jay Yang (Vice President, Electrical, TUV Rheinland Greater China), Tao Li (Vice President, Marketing, TUV Rheinland Greater China), Sven-Olaf Steinke (General Manager, Electrical, TUV Rheinland Greater China), Kun Niu (Chief Officer, Switch Products, Huawei) and Xinghai Zhang (Director, Global Certification Center, Huawei) attended the signing ceremony. The strategic agreement will strengthen collaboration between the two companies on green energy conservation, reduction of hazardous substances and environmental compliance for electronic and electrical products. It will also help enhance the safety, environmental friendliness and sustainability of Huawei's global products and solutions.

    An increasing number of countries and regions are now making environmental compliance an important component of sustainable development. As a large, globalized industry, electronic products are closely linked to global climate change and sustainable development. National governments, electronic companies, distributors and consumers are therefore putting increasing emphasis on green, sustainable products and services. "Green value" has become an important consideration in consumer purchases. Such a change in mindset brings both opportunities and challenges for the process of transitioning from "Made in China" to "Innovated in China."

    Jay Yang, Vice President, Electrical, TUV Rheinland Greater China, said: "TUV Rheinland has always encouraged businesses to enhance the sustainability of their products. 'Made in China' is now becoming 'Innovated in China.' During this process of technical innovation and realization of sustainability, we hope that TUV Rheinland's know-how and global credibility in environmental protection and sustainability can help Chinese companies secure the green advantage and gain access to international markets."

    The signing of the Green Product Mark certification agreement by the two parties on the day signaled their mutual interest to engage in long-term strategic cooperation within the field. According to the agreement, TUV Rheinland will provide Huawei with customized green product testing and certification services that will help Huawei realize product energy performance that exceeds the market standards. Superior energy-savings will give Huawei products an advantage over the rest of the ICT industry.

    Kun Niu, Director of Switch Products, Huawei, said: "Huawei has always been a supporter of the green philosophy in the ICT industry. We have always followed an environmental strategy of 'green channel, green operations, green partners, green world.' The latest strategic collaboration with TUV Rheinland on green product certification means Huawei's electronic and electrical products will be able to secure international acceptance more quickly. It also signals Huawei's commitment to the pursuit of sustainable development. By jointforces with TUV Rheinland this time we hope to spur the onset of a green revolution throughout the entire ICT industry."

    During the signing ceremony, TUV Rheinland presented Huawei with the TUV Rheinland Green Product Mark for its S5320-56C-HI/S5320-32C-24S-HI switch. The Huawei S5320-56C-HI/ S5320-32C-24S-HI is the company's new Gigabit Ethernet Agile Switch and provides a rich array of agility features. The switch product supports a variety of new energy-saving technologies as well. EEE technology means the switch is immediately operational upon power on. When a switch port has no traffic then the port's PHY chip switches off to reduce the energy consumption. Switch energy efficiency is therefore increased by 30%. The switch also supports system hibernation. When the switch has no traffic then the switching chip can be put into hibernation mode as well to reduce system energy consumption by more than 63%.

    The TUV Rheinland Green Product Mark is a voluntary certification for consumer products and their environmental impact. Product testing and certification is based on relevant certification standards and requirements for each product type. These standards are in turn based upon social responsibility review and regulatory requirements. The international standards in the four aspects of chemical substances, recycling, energy efficiency and product carbon footprint are taken into account as well. Products that pass testing are issued the TUV Rheinland Green Product Mark. The mark not only helps businesses prove to brand-name vendors and retailers their corporate commitment and the international competitiveness of their products. At the same time, the mark also aids end consumers identify green, eco-friendly products amidst the plethora of products on the market.
