Ergotron designs its packaging to minimize the impact on the environment. We promote the use of electronic distribution of software and user installation manuals to reduce consumption of paper.
We support the EU Directive on Packaging and Packaging Waste (94/62/EC) and other legislation calling for the abolition of toxics in packaging. Our packaging is designed without inclusion of heavy metals and to maximize its recyclability. No excess covers or wrappings are used, and shipment quantities are carefully calculated to reduce waste of container space (and concomitant waste of fuel in transportation). When used, our shipping pallets have been heat-treated rather than fumigated to reduce the use of harmful insecticides and vermifuges while still controlling the spread of non-native insect species.
