#CulturePH - Xiaomi begins product carbon footprint assessment and champions sustainable living awareness

An external carbon data analysis and certification organization was partnered with  Xiaomi, one of the top manufacturers of consumer electronics and smart devices in the world, to conduct an LCA carbon footprint analysis on its most recent flagship smartphone. This collaboration allowed the establishment of a thorough process and methodological model for evaluating the carbon footprint of smartphone products.

The overall greenhouse gas emissions from the extraction of raw materials through to the product's manufacture, distribution, usage, and eventual disposal are measured using the LCA methodology. Regarding the carbon footprint of the Xiaomi 13 Pro, Xiaomi's measurements total 62.8 kg CO2e and account for carbon emissions from raw materials, manufacture, storage, transit, use, and end-of-life disposal. This measurement is in accordance with PAS2050 to ensure data accuracy and credibility.  

"We are committed to this valuable information to inform our decision-making and prioritize sustainability in everything we do," a Xiaomi spokesperson stated, "This initiative has allowed us to make significant progress in reducing our carbon footprint and ensuring that our products have a positive impact on the environment. We are proud to continue on this path towards a more sustainable future." 

Xiaomi places a high priority on incorporating sustainability goals that are compatible with its company and sector as a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), which supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set forth by the United Nations.

At the moment, Xiaomi offers more than 40 energy-saving items and uses the One Paper Box design to cut packaging by up to 40%. By putting in place an LCA carbon footprint management system, Xiaomi advances significantly toward realizing its sustainability goal and reaffirms its dedication to creating environmentally friendly goods that are good for both people and the environment.

Every green action matters 

As a global citizen who supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set forth by the United Nations, Xiaomi recognizes and supports the SDGs' objective of fostering a shared understanding of sustainable lifestyles and contributing to efforts to ensure that more people worldwide are aware of sustainable development and environmentally friendly ways of living.

In addition to its current commitments to increasing the accuracy of product carbon footprint data and broadening its product carbon footprint measurement to more product models, Xiaomi is also committed to working with National Geographic Magazine China to raise public awareness of sustainable living.

"Our status as a young, global corporation has instilled in us the belief that notable transformation arises from building awareness and pursuing gradual, incremental steps toward change." Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Xiaomi Group Lei Jun commented, “Through this collaboration, we seek to promote environmental consciousness, encourage individuals to make sustainable choices while purchasing products, opt for energy-saving alternatives, choose greener transportation, and take advantage of recycling options while upgrading their products." 

This initiative, which is the result of a cooperative effort, draws on the expertise and direction of National Geographic scientists and explorers, offers educational resources to inspire individuals and communities to comprehend the effects of lifestyle choices on the environment and find ways to live more sustainably and sustainably intelligent lives.
