Seagate Product Sustainability

Seagate is committed to sustainable digital storage – to improving the sustainability of each terabyte (TB) of storage we design, produce and ship. Compared to a 2010 baseline, we made significant improvements in five key indicators of sustainability, (energy in use/TB, climate change/TB, human toxicity/TB, metal depletion/TB, water depletion/TB).

How We Assess Product Sustainability

Seagate’s goal is to be transparent, accurate and credible with respect to the sustainability assessment of our products. To meet this goal we have partnered with Anthesis and Footprinter in developing and managing a scalable suite of tools to allow us to assess the more than 4,000 different products Seagate designs, builds and sells worldwide. Our tools and approach have been 3rd-party critically reviewed and verified.

Our tools specifically help us to:

  • Plan for innovation and growth from a sustainability perspective.
  • Assess sustainability performance early in the design process before concepts are locked down.
  • Engage our designers, marketers, and managers in a language they understand.
  • Support customers with detailed sustainability data that they can feed into their own sustainability calculations.
  • Communicate with all our stakeholders to reach a common view of priorities, challenges and solutions.
