China Mobile has initiated a green packaging system adopting recyclable wood substitutes in the packaging process of its communication products.
Eleven GSM and TD-SCDMA mobile communication equipment providers — Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Datang Telecom Technology, FiberHome, Motorola, Nokia Siemens Networks, Nortel Networks, China Potevio, New Postcom, and ZTE Corporation — were invited to attend the kick-off ceremony held in Beijing. They will call on global telecom businesses to join in Green Packaging for a greener world.
Green Packaging is a logistics system developed by China Mobile and its partners, aimed at reducing the use of wooden boxes in traditional transportation, and to set up a general, efficient and economical packaging and transportation standard and system.
It is estimated that China Mobile will reduce wood consumption by 57,000 cubic meters each year through Green packaging, equaling 670 hectares of forest, reduce fuel consumption by 1.37 million liters, and save 3.93 million kWh electricity, amounting to a carbon dioxide emission reduction of 120,000 tons.
