Everything we make or use has a carbon footprint. It represents the total amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases generated during its life.
Working with the Carbon Trust, Dyson has measured the carbon footprint of the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer range.
Every single component
All components inside the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers were assessed. Materials and manufacture contribute 8% of total emissions.
Water vs. highways
Constant paper towel restocking relies on road transport. Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers use energy-efficient ships - representing less than 1% of total emissions.
Less energy = less carbon
Airblade™ technology has fast dry times and no energy-hungry heating elements. So it uses up to 80% less energy than warm air dryers.
End of life
With a 5 year guarantee, the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer is built to last. Even so, many components are designed to be recyclable with negligible environmental impact.
