“At HMD Global, home of Nokia phones, we are working hard on our business wide pledges which shows our commitment to work harder to protect tomorrow,” said HMD Global Senior Business Manager, East Africa, Gopher Ogembo.

Durability Planet

The body and back cover of Nokia G60 5G are made using 60 per cent and 100 per cent recycled plastic respectively while maintaining the superior durability Nokia phones are known for.

Nokia G60 5G is also housed in new packaging that has an increased amount of recycled content and uses FSC-certified materials.

If 1 million people held onto their Nokia G60 5G for an extra year, they would save the same CO2 emissions as needed to power 5,652 homes for an entire year.[3]
