Social Responsibility

ABP Technology Ltd. takes Social Responsibility very seriously, as a company we know that it is up to us to make changes to our practices in order to help the environment. This can be seen with everything that we do and when it comes to our products and packaging, we make sure that we make sure our waste is accounted for and has as little impact on the environment as possible. Please find below, the actions we have taken to enhance our social practice.

WEEE Regulations:

The EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires all Member EU countries to maximise the separate collection, reuse and recycling of WEEE. The UK WEEE Regulations (derived from this Directive) applies to all Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) placed on the market in the UK covered by the scope of these Regulations.

Under the UK WEEE Regulations, “Producers” are required to mark all relevant EEE with a “crossed-out wheelie bin” symbol to remind consumers not to discard WEEE in the domestic waste stream. ABP Technology Ltd encourages all of its customers to make note of this symbol and avoid putting any WEEE in your domestic waste bin(s) or container(s).

ABP Technology Ltd supports the reuse and recycling of WEEE as there are several environmental benefits of doing so, such as: Reduction of raw material and energy usage, prevention of landfill, prevention of hazardous and/or toxic materials present in some WEEE contaminating the environment.

As a Producer under the UK WEEE Regulations, ABP Technology Ltd complies with its Producer Obligations by being registered as a Member of the WeeeCare Compliance Scheme and obtaining the WEEE Producer Registration Number – WEE/MM4018AA

Alternatively, there is a network of recycling centres across the UK where consumers of WEEE can also take WEEE free of charge to be discarded, reused and/or recycled. The complete list of locations can be found at: www.recyclenow.com

In addition, if a retailer supplying new EEE from retail premises with a sales area relating to EEE of at least 400m², the retailer must provide for the takeback of very small WEEE free of charge to the end user, who has no obligation to buy EEE of an equivalent type.

Waste Batteries

The EU Waste Batteries and Accumulators Directive requires all Member EU countries to maximise the separate collection, treatment and recycling of waste batteries and accumulators. The UK Battery Regulations (derived from this Directive) applies to 3 types of batteries and accumulators placed on the market in the UK: Portable, Industrial, and Automotive.

Under Regulation 5 of the Batteries and Accumulators (Placing on the Market) Regulations 2008, “Producers” are required to mark all relevant batteries and battery packs placed on the market in the UK with the “crossed out wheeled bin symbol” to remind consumers not to discard batteries and accumulators in the domestic waste stream. ABP Technology Ltd encourages all of its customers to make note of this symbol and avoid putting any batteries in your domestic waste bin(s) or container(s).

ABP Technology Ltd supports the reuse and recycling of batteries as there are several environmental benefits of doing so, such as: Reduction of raw material and energy usage, prevention of landfill, prevention of hazardous and/or toxic materials present in some batteries contaminating the environment. As a Producer under the UK Battery Regulations, ABP Technology Ltd complies with its Producer Obligations by being registered as a Member of the BatteryBack Compliance Scheme and has been assigned the following Battery Producer Registration Number – BPRN08279

 

Plastic Free Packaging

All packaging manufactured by ABP Technology Ltd. from July 2018, includes 100% Plastic Free Internal Packaging for all products under the STEALTH brand. This is in line with the companies mission to support global efforts in reducing waste plastic within landfill and within oceans.

For more information on how ABP Technology Ltd. went 100% Plastic Free in their packaging, please visit: https://www.stealthgaming.net/news/stealth-join-fight-plastic/

 

Look For The Logo

All packaging featuring the “Plastic Free” logo signifies that you can expect there to be no plastic material in the packaging. It is also a sign of ABP Technology’s involvement in the war against plastic waste and also highlights the Plastic free opening experience to expect when purchasing STEALTH Gaming accessories.

We estimate that any plastic in the packaging of STEALTH products will be fully phased out by the end of 2018, until then we would like to stress the importance of recycling the packaging that is included in the current packaging.
