Tapo and Earth Hour 2024: Uniting for a Greener Tomorrow

    Earth Hour symbolizes a worldwide commitment to combating climate change by turning off lights for one hour annually. Since 2007, this simple act has served as a powerful reminder of our collective responsibility towards our planet. By participating on March 23, 2024, from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM, you join Tapo's mission in making a meaningful impact. Let's make this Earth Hour our most impactful yet, together.

    So, what actions has Tapo taken for Earth Hour and to support environmental sustainability in the long term?

    The Tapo Earth Hour Initiative

    Tapo is committed to protecting the earth and is willing to engage in activities encouraging more people to engage in environmental protection. For Earth Hour 2024, Tapo has launched a “Lights Off” event that you can see in the Tapo app. This feature allows users to easily turn off their lights, inviting them to experience a moment of solitude and connection with the earth in darkness. By joining the activity, you’ll receive an e-medal—a lasting symbol of your commitment to the environment. You can post on Facebook using the hashtag #Tapoearthhour to reach a wider audience.

    Beyond Earth Hour, Tapo promotes everyday sustainable living, offering eco-conscious solutions and materials to facilitate this lifestyle.

    Tapo’s Commitment to the Environment

    Embracing sustainable practices and technologies, Tapo strives to minimize waste and emissions for enduring environmental impact and provides multiple solutions to reduce unnecessary energy consumption.

    • Green Products

    Tapo prioritizes the use of recyclable materials in product assembly to minimize waste. The company is also progressively reducing plastic use in packaging, favoring recyclable alternatives instead. This effort extends beyond mere material selection; Tapo is actively investing in more sustainable materials. With environmental conservation as a core focus, Tapo recognizes the critical need to safeguard our planet for future generations.

    • Energy-Saving Products

    As a user-focused brand, Tapo always designs its products with energy-saving in mind. Tapo's solar panels, for instance, harness the sun's power, a free and abundant energy source, making them eco-friendly and highly cost-effective in the long run. The brightness level of the 9W Tapo Smart Bulb is equivalent to 60W incandescent light bulbs, providing sufficient brightness with little energy consumption. Further, Tapo smart bulbs last up to 13.6 years, 15 times greater than incandescent bulbs and 2.5 times more than energy-saving incandescent light bulbs. A sustainable lifestyle can not only be achieved with hardware upgrades. Features such as scheduling usage time, monitoring energy consumption, and one-click turning off the lights are equipped to help users enjoy a more energy-saving lifestyle.

    Tapo’s Go-Green Program Together with TP-Link

    Tapo, in partnership with its parent company, TP-Link, has made significant investments in developing infrastructure dedicated to environmental protection. Their efforts are grounded in adherence to green principles, actively promoting the ethos of "harmonious coexistence between humans and nature."

    TP-Link has honored its environmental commitment by implementing a comprehensive green strategy, encompassing green systems, products, and operations across all facets of the organization.

    • Greenhouse Gas Management

    TP-Link aligns with the ISO 14064 international standard by systematically analyzing and addressing the critical aspects of carbon emissions. The company identifies and manages the responsibilities, assets, and risks associated with greenhouse gases (GHG), maintains a comprehensive GHG emission inventory, and implements robust mechanisms for quantifying, managing, and reporting GHG emissions.  

    • Energy Consumption Management

    In accordance with the ISO 50001 standard, TP-Link has gradually promoted the establishment of an energy management system by defining the management system of energy conservation and emission reduction, the management system of office space energy conservation, and other system specifications. TP-Link focuses on energy conservation and actively introduces new technologies to promote in-depth energy conservation.

    • Environmental Impact Factor Management

    Following the environmental policy defined in the Quality and Environmental Management Manual, TP-Link has formulated and issued the Regulations on Environmental Waste Disposal and the Hazardous Waste Disposal Standard, and has carried out systematic management of environmental impact factors in compliance with the 4R principles (Responsibly Recycle, Reduce, and Renew).

    Let’s go green together with Tapo. As we gather for Earth Hour, let us live a green life and unite to shape a sustainable future. By harnessing the power of Tapo smart devices, we can make significant strides towards a greener and more sustainable planet. Together, let us embrace Earth Hour and pave the way for a brighter future for generations to come.
