Brother immensely follows environmental labels
The use of the restricted substances in Brother sewing machines such as lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium is absolutely within the regulation values.
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.
