We take a step-by-step approach to sustainability, aiming to create a supportive environment for tech products and services that's environmentally and socially responsible.

Our team have undertaken this:

  • Via the implementation of cardboard packaging, aligning with the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines;

  • Developing a first-of-its-kind education resource, Closing The E-Loop, that addresses the e-waste crisis by providing a range of sustainable solutions that can enable change at home, work and school; and

  • Implemented a portfolio of cables using third-party certified recycled plastic, which reduces the use of virgin fossil-fuels that are typically used in the creation of plastic due to our use of this valuable secondary raw material.

With over 30 years of experience in the electronics industry, Comsol collaborates with partners to provide consumers with top-quality cables, chargers, and adapters, while also pioneering sustainable packaging solutions.

Our transition from traditional blister packs and magnet-plastic casings to cardboard packaging reflects our commitment to aligning with the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation's (APCO’s) Sustainable Packaging Guidelines (SPGs) and promoting environmental stewardship.

This strategic shift aims to address challenges in reuse and resource recovery, marking a deliberate move towards sustainability in our packaging practices.

Embracing APCO's Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) program, Comsol ensures clear recycling instructions on all retail packaging, empowering consumers to make eco-conscious choices and fostering a more sustainable retail industry.

In our B2B sector, we've shifted towards recycled plastic polybags further reducing plastic waste and promoting circular practices. Comsol's adoption of recycled materials, certified by the Global Recycled Standard, signifies our commitment to innovation and environmental stewardship in packaging solutions across both retail and B2B sectors.

The Sustainability Hierarchy empowers us to make eco-conscious choices at every stage of our products’ lifecycles, from refusing unnecessary items to recovering valuable resources, fostering a more sustainable future.

Making Informed Choices

All stages of the electronic product lifecycle are important to consider in order to be sustainable consumers. The Sustainability Hierarchy, also known as the Rs of Sustainability is a valuable tool to help guide business and consumers in minimising our impact and making conscious choices.

As a brand it is important to consider which stage of the Sustainability Hierarchy aligns best with our efforts to minimise impact and contribute to a more sustainable future, for us it is the early stage in product design and manufacturing.

  • Refuse: We have said no to unnecessary plastic and harmful materials in products and packaging, reducing demand for resources.

  • Rethink: We investigate both simple and innovative solutions to extend the life of products, including ongoing resilience and functionality testing of cables, adaptors & chargers, as well as creating products with multiple functions such as our docking stations.

  • Reduce: We have reduced the amount of packaging used in designs, assessing packaging attributes with APCO.

As an active consumer you can make actionable change too, encouraging brands to make a sustainable transition and taking your own part in managing products and packaging throughout the supply chain.

  • Refuse: Say no to unnecessary products or packaging, reducing demand for resources.

  • Rethink: Consider alternatives or innovative solutions that have a lesser impact on the environment.

  • Reduce: Use fewer resources, embrace simplicity, and be mindful of consumption habits.

  • Reuse: Extend the life of products by finding new ways to utilise them.

  • Repair: Fix items rather than discarding them, promoting longevity

  • Refurbish: Restore products to their original condition, giving them a second life.

  • Remanufacture: Rebuild products using existing components, reducing waste.

  • Repurpose: Transform items for new uses, encouraging creativity and sustainability.

  • Recycle: Properly dispose of materials to be used in creating new products.

  • Recover: Extract valuable resources from discarded products, minimising waste.

As part of our Closing The E-Loop education resource our team have created a Factsheet Library that provides an overview of Sustainable Solutions to the global electronic waste crisis. Click here to gain access to the content.


Being transparent about our actions is important to us because it can enable others to use the information that we have learnt to provide benefits to the environment and communities in a like-minded way. Learn more from the attached reports.
