Brother, a lead­ing Ja­pa­nese pi­o­neer in pro­vid­ing sewing tech­nol­ogy, has es­tab­lished its orig­i­nal ‘Brother Green La­bel’ for its prod­ucts, in or­der to be en­vi­ron­men­tal­friendly. The adopted stan­dards are ISO 14021 and JIS Q14021.

Brother has adopted a to­tal of 3 en­vi­ron­men­tal la­bels: Type I, II and III. “The use of the re­stricted sub­stances such as lead, cad­mium, hex­ava­lent chromium is ab­so­lutely within the reg­u­la­tion val­ues,” claims Brother. It’s per­ti­nent to men­tion here that the Brother Group rolled out its En­vi­ron­men­tal Ac­tion Plan (2016-2018) some­time back and to achieve the set tar­get in this plan, the en­vi­ron­men­tal la­bels in­clude Blue An­gel, Eco Mark, Nordic Swan, EPEAT, and China's Ten Cir­cle Mark. Brother has al­ready been pro­vid­ing all its prod­ucts in ac­cor­dance with the RoHS Di­rec­tive ( the re­stric­tion of the use of cer­tain haz­ardous sub­stances in elec­tri­cal and elec­tronic equip­ment) for all the mar­ket ar­eas in the Eu­ro­pean Union. En­vi­ron­men­tal la­bels in­di­cate that prod­ucts are se­lected and made con­sid­er­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal as­pects. The la­bels also as­sist Brother in pro­vid­ing cus­tomers with help­ful in­for­ma­tion when se­lect­ing eco- con­scious prod­ucts.

All 3 la­bels are con­sid­ered to meet the stake­hold­ers' en­vi­ron­men­tal re­quire­ments and the Brother Group ac­tively ac­quires the la­bels in the coun­tries and re­gions where its prod­ucts are sold.
