Facts and figures

You can find the most important results from the 2020 life cycle assessment here. Take a look at how many electrical and electronic appliances have been recycled with the SENS take-back system over the past 30 years, how many recyclable materials have been recovered and how this has benefited the environment.

Environmental benefits

The life cycle assessment allows you to ascertain how the offering of a service or the manufacturing of a product impacts the environment. To this end, it is analysed which resources a product consumes over its life cycle and which emissions are associated with this. The various results can subsequently be shown in eco-points (EP).
