"Toshiba strongly believes in corporate social responsibility,"
said Mark Simons, vice president and general manager, Digital
Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc.
"There is a universal responsibility that applies to
individuals, governments and corporations to deal with the
environmental consequences of products that are created, sold
and used. In this spirit, our notebook computer business is
taking certain actions to help protect the environment."
Toshiba will recycle its notebook computers for free with no
obligation by the consumer to purchase a new Toshiba computer.
Non-Toshiba notebook computers will be recycled for a small
ates that over the next five years EPEAT-registered computers
will positively contribute to the reduction of more than 13
million pounds of hazardous waste, more than 3 million pounds of
non-hazardous waste, and save more than 600,000 Megawatts of
energy - enough energy to power 60,000 homes for a year.
