Designed for Sustainability: Introducing a Refreshed Video Collaboration Product Suite


This week, Logitech unveiled a significant development in our video collaboration devices powered by the CollabOS operating system.  Moving forward, these devices will be manufactured using next-life plastics, aligning with the sustainability goals of enterprise customers. Rally Bar, Rally Bar Mini, Tap IP, Tap Scheduler, and Scribe are being refreshed with materials that lower the carbon impact of each product. This move allows organisations to work with Logitech as a partner in proactively managing their carbon footprint more effectively. 

“By transitioning our portfolio of conference room devices to a lower product carbon footprint, we are helping other companies navigate their sustainability challenges,” said Prakash Arunkundrum, Chief Operating Officer at Logitech. “We’re not only designing and manufacturing new products with recycled plastic and other lower-carbon materials but refreshing existing products to provide IT leaders with a new way to evaluate their workplace technology investment in conference room systems – one that includes people and planet.”

Efforts to reduce negative environmental impact have rapidly become a critical business imperative for companies around the world. Analyst research firm Frost & Sullivan found that 65% of IT professionals believe that becoming a leader in sustainability practices is an important business objective in the coming year. Logitech is committed to helping businesses address the growing imperative of reducing environmental impact without compromising on quality or increasing prices. Let’s take a deeper dive into how. 

Design for Sustainability (DfS)

Applying Design for Sustainability (DfS) principles to Logitech’s video collaboration portfolio means that Logitech customers can outfit entire conference rooms, including Microsoft Teams Rooms and Zoom Rooms, with technology designed with sustainability in mind. This development expands on the progress already achieved with personal workstation peripherals such webcams, headsets, mice, and keyboards.

A key tenet of DfS is the use of circular materials that can be recovered from the waste stream and given a second life, including post-consumer recycled plastics (PCR) that Logitech calls “next-life plastics.” 

Opening Access for Greater Impact

Logitech has decreased its Scope 3 emissions by 21% in 2022 with the goal of removing more carbon than it creates by 2030. To drive carbon reduction at an even bigger scale and stimulate industry-wide progress, Logitech is offering to openly share its DfS principles, tools and its knowledge of how to incorporate more sustainable materials in the manufacturing process with any organisations in the consumer technology industry interested in increasing their sustainability efforts.

Transparency and Accountability

As more companies hold themselves accountable for measurably reducing their carbon impact, they increasingly seek out technology vendors who provide transparency via key performance indicators, reporting, and third party certifications. Logitech is on track to achieve its 2025 target of having a product carbon footprint for every product in its portfolio, making it easier for company technology buyers to make informed decisions about–and report on– the scope of their impact when outfitting their global workforces for meeting rooms, personal workstations, and flex desking. Logitech annually reports on its progress toward its Climate Action goals in the 2023 Impact Report.

In the ever-changing business landscape, sustainability has transformed from a mere buzzword into a fundamental requirement. At Logitech, we wholeheartedly embrace this shift and are actively taking strides throughout our business and consumer offerings to provide solutions that align with our unwavering commitment to Design for Sustainability

The Australian Red Cross are an organisation focused on humanitarian values. Everything is about face-to-face relationships and that’s very difficult to do when you have 120 sites across the country. Now, with everyone able to communicate and collaborate face-to-face, it’s changing the way we work.

We tried upwards of 10 different manufacturers and devices... Once we found a solution that worked, we put it in every single room so the user experience got a lot better.

We share a lot of learnings and knowledge with local Tasmanian organisations – they’re looking at the Universities meeting rooms and Video Conferencing solutions to guide the design process of their own spaces.

Manager, Unified Communications IT Services
University of Tasmania

Our previous video conferencing service was proving inadequate, which was deterring employees from using it. We decided to switch to Logitech. The new solutions have been a real hit with our employees, delivering excellent performance and seamless integration with our existing work collaboration applications. Being able to manage the technology in house also means we can now be proactive in our incident response, meaning less downtime for users.
