Green Products
Green design

Green purchasing

Carol produces green products and uses only approved suppliers. Suppliers must state their non-use of restricted environmental substances in the specifications or purchasing contract when Carol is selecting new suppliers or certifying new specifications/materials.
All suppliers are required to progressively restrict or prohibit the use of harmful substances in accordance with the schedule. Suppliers also undergo regular mentoring with testing of parts and materials to establish a system for ensuring that products conform to regulatory and customer requirements.

Green production

Controls on the use of chemicals in product parts, components and production processes have been strengthened. Strict controls are enforced on environmentally-sensitive chemicals during the production process. All packaging used with products upon shipping are made from recyclable materials. Packaging must also be re-usable to minimize the amount of packaging and waste.

Other Programs
Customer Care

● Customer satisfaction
Carol conducts annual customer satisfaction surveys that ask for customer feedback on quality, price, delivery time and technology. The responses are collected and analyzed so that improvements can be made. We aim to achieve 100% customer satisfaction.
● Trusted partner
Carol hopes to grow with our customers. In addition to providing a variety of solutions based on our understanding of the customer’s requirements, we have also established enduring partnerships with global distributors and made them our trusted partners through long-term cooperation and development.

Supplier Mentoring

Suppliers that pass our incoming materials inspection receive mentoring on obtaining ISO 9000 quality system certification. For new purchases or new material specifications, the relevant specifications or contracts include prohibitions on the use of environmentally-sensitive substances. Documentation on compliance or non-use of environmentally-sensitive substances must also be provided.

Non-use of conflict minerals Suppliers are required by Carol to ensure that all of the parts and components contain no “conflict minerals” such as Gold (Au), Tantalum (Ta), Tin (Sn) and Tungsten (W). Our purchasing management in the supply chain will hopefully provide tangible support to international human rights organizations.
