D-Link’s founder, Ken Kao, was a health and fitness enthusiast. While pioneering Ethernet networking and home networking, it was important to Mr. Kao that D-Link be a responsible corporate citizen. Beyond meeting governmental regulations, D-Link needed to be doing the right things for the right reasons. Those reasons focused the Company on being able to serve customers today, and in the future.
D-Link has been among the first to embrace environmentally responsible practices such as the use of raw materials that protect customers and the environment, packaging made of post-consumer content and efficient power supplies.
D-Link Green Technology, which greatly reduces power consumption while maintaining performance, was one of Mr. Kao’s last initiatives and one that D-Link heartily embraces as its standard going forward.
- D-Link Green Technology leads the market with energy savings of up to 80%.
- D-Link’s European Service Centre recycles 90% of its waste onsite.
- D-link never uses materials considered hazardous. All our products comply fully with the European Union’s RoHS Directive to protect both our customers and the environment.
- D-Link is committed to recycling, embracing the EU's WEEE initiatives.
- D-Link was the first networking company to become registered as an ENERGY STAR partner, a global initiative to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, which ensures that our power adapters now comply with strict energy-efficiency guidelines.
