This is a timely reminder in conjunction with World Environment Day, which is observed worldwide annually on 5th June. Sustainability was precisely what the 242B1G was created for, with an emphasis on super energy efficiency, eco-friendly materials and 100% recycled packing material, on top of delivering crisp visuals.
For businesses, big or small, sustainable practices make sense. Besides cutting down the company’s energy use and resulting emissions, it can also reduce costs. By combining a new energy-saving design and a super-efficient power supply, the 242B1G monitor achieves a higher energy class. Its use of a new LED backlight technology delivers vivid colors and consistent brightness, while using significantly less energy, making it a great addition to the office.
This model combines three features that provide maximum power savings. PowerSensor, which can detect if you have stepped away from your desk, automatically reduces screen brightness to save you up to 80% in energy costs. Meanwhile, its LightSensor feature adjusts screen brightness according to the light levels in your room to give you the perfect brightness while using up minimal power.
And thirdly, with the flick of its 0 watt hard switch, you can cut off your monitor completely from AC power. This results in zero power consumption to reduce your carbon footprint even further.
Your business can help the environment in a variety of ways. One of them is by choosing eco-friendly office products and equipment.
As Philips is committed to using sustainable, eco-friendly materials across our monitor range, all body plastic parts, metal chassis parts and packing materials comprise of 100% recyclable materials. In this model, we have also utilized up to 85% of post-consumer recycled plastics.
In strict adherence to major international standards, like RoHS, we have also substantially reduced or eliminated the presence of toxic substances. This model, for example, is lead, mercury and halogen free to minimize environmental impact.
Philips green monitors are packed in 100% recyclable packing materials and paper cushions that are non-EPE (Expanded polyethylene). They are biodegradable and can be recycled, thus greatly diminishing waste and cost, for a more sustainable eco-living. This eliminates the commonly used EPE (expanded polyethylene), which is a non-biodegradable plastic.
To deliver remarkably crisp images with vivid colors, this model utilizes IPS technology that makes it ideal for photos, movies, web browsing, as well as professional applications. IPS technology also provides extra-wide viewing angles of 178/178 degrees, which means you can view the display monitor clearly from almost every angle.
To keep users comfortable while they stay productive, this model is equipped with Flicker-free technology, LowBlue Mode and TUV Eye Comfort certification. These features were designed to reduce eye fatigue and prevent the ill effects of harmful blue light, which can help boost team efficiency.
