ECO Survey

How well does your company combine productivity and eco-friendliness? Take our survey to tell us how much (or how little) the displays in your office help you work smarter?

Eco-friendliness, budget and productivity are often seen as three mutually exclusive concepts. Most businesses seem to think you can have one or two of these, but not all three. In accordance with its Green Vision concept, NEC Display Solutions applies a no compromise approach to its corporate responsibility and to its product design.

We empower users to balance the energy usage of their products with their overall performance, cost and selecting the ideal operational standard. Onboard schedulers to minimise unused power on times and sensors to adjust brightness to compensate for ambient light changes are amongst many ECO features that have driven our product development.

Do the displays and projectors in your office have features like these? Do you use them? Do these features help you to be more productive and to work smarter? Please take a minute to answer a few questions that will help NEC shape its next generation of displays.


Launch of ReTrade Programme
for Used Projectors of Any Brand

NEC Display Solutions Europe has unveiled its refurbish and reuse programme for aged projectors of any model and make. Customers who recently purchased an NEC projector can now trade-in their used product in the NEC ReTrade programme and receive a cash return. The returned units will be refurbished for future reuse in the market or recycled responsibly to reduce material waste and unnecessary resource consumption.

EC’s ‘return, refurbish and reuse’ approach aims to help preserve the environment and provides an incentive to customers by reducing the acquisition costs of a new projector. To participate, consumers and dealers can simply visit the ReTrade website  and provide proof of an NEC projector purchase in the last three months. Once the details of the old and new projectors are registered, an instant trade-in quote will be provided and the customer receives an email with a free shipping label to send in the used product.

In line with NEC’s Green Vision, to minimise environmental impact over the entire product lifecycle, 85 per cent of the returned projectors in the ReTrade programme will be refurbished and returned to the market. This reduces material waste, disposal of hazardous substances and unnecessary resource consumption. The remaining projectors, which are unfit for reuse, will be professionally recycled.

‘Being the long-term global leader in projectors and an active participant in the protection of natural resources, NEC Display Solutions leads the way in environmental responsibility. We are committed to building a better world for future generations. Our unique ReTrade programme is the first in the industry that includes refurbishment and reuse of projectors of all models and brands’, said Klaus Auerboeck, Director Product Management Projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe. ‘It's a win-win situation for us all. We give projectors a second life and our customers save money by trading-in used products. Together we preserve resources and create a sustainable environment.’

The NEC ReTrade programme is already available to customers in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxemburg, Netherlands and the United Kingdom and will be soon extended to other countries. For more information please visit the ReTrade website .
