Carbon Trust endorses Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer
The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer is the first hand dryer to be awarded the Carbon Reduction Label from the Carbon Trust.
To secure the Carbon Reduction Label, the machine’s total carbon footprint – the amount of carbon emissions (CO2 and other greenhouse gases) produced from its materials and manufacture, transport, in-use and end of life – were measured and certified by the Carbon Trust. As part of the certification, Dyson has committed to reducing the Airblade™ hand dryer’s carbon emissions further in the next two years.
The footprinting process revealed that the Dyson Airblade™ AB03 hand dryer emits 1,100 kg/ CO2e total emissions during its lifetime or 3 g/CO2e per dry1 – equal to the carbon emissions created by watching 2 minutes and 9 seconds of television2.
