Lightweight and Less Plastic Packaging for Flagship Phones
The HUAWEI Mate series and P series are Huawei's flagship phones. We improved the packaging for these flagship phones in 2020. As a result, the packaging utilization rate for the HUAWEI Mate 40 Series was 68% higher than the HUAWEI Mate 7 Series. Each phone's packaging used 55 grams less material, meaning 550 tons less paper for every 10 million units. That's equivalent to planting 9,350 trees.

We also replaced as much plastic packaging as possible with fiber-based packaging for the HUAWEI P40 Series, so that the packaging materials can be more easily disposed of. There was 17% less plastic in the packaging of this phone than there was in its predecessors. That means we used 17,500 kg less plastic per 10 million phones, equivalent to 1.8 million medium-sized supermarket plastic bags.
