Sustainable products and circular economy

A large proportion of indirect emissions from Sunrise are generated when products are manufactured, transported and used. To avoid any negative impact on the environment and society, Sunrise designs its products and services to be as sustainable as possible.

What this means in practice is that when it comes to Sunrise devices such as modems and set-top boxes, the focus is on durability, repairability and low power consumption. In addition, the design and packaging are aimed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. One example is the award-winning Sunrise IPTV Box, whose case and remote control are made entirely from recycled plastic. The Sunrise IPTV Box received the «Sustainability Award» from «Digital TV Europe» in 2020.

Since reusing materials like plastic and metal reduces environmental emissions, Sunrise is embracing efficient resource management through its updated Buyback programme, for example. This is an easy way for Sunrise customers to recycle their used mobile phones, tablets, and smartwatches.

Existing Sunrise customers can sell their device to Sunrise even if they do not purchase a new one. The returned devices are refurbished and resold. Devices that no longer work are properly recycled.
