Video interview of Eelco Smit, Philips’ Senior Manager Sustainability

“We involve Veolia at a very early stage in the innovation process”
Published in the dossier of July 2016


Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

Our products are designed to improve people’s quality of life, but also to leave the lowest possible environmental footprint. This is why we would like to increase the amount of recycled plastic in the composition of our products; it’s a key element in our sustainability program. 

We really appreciate the partnership with companies like Veolia. 

We involve them at a very early stage in the innovation processes, welcoming and working with them to be certain that our products are really designed to use as much recycled plastic as possible. All this will help us include even more recycled materials in our production methods in the future.
