“As one of the most well-known brands in gaming for decades, Turtle Beach has had a long-term commitment to ESG initiatives and today’s announcement articulates our future goals,” said Juergen Stark, Chairman and CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “With the guidance of the team at RPS Group, amplified by the energy within the organization to continue to do more and do better, we are excited to share these plans and our goals with the community. We want to ensure that when consumers buy Turtle Beach, ROCCAT, and Neat Microphones products, they have confidence knowing we’re focused on minimizing environmental impact, in addition to knowing they’re getting the highest-quality product.”

One of Turtle Beach Corporation’s commitments to date includes reducing plastic use in packaging by 88% (by weight) for the Company’s Stealth 600 Gen 2 headset for Xbox (as compared to the original Stealth 600 Xbox headset model). In addition, with other headset models, plastic use was reduced by 87%-96% (by weight). Turtle Beach Corporation has also re-engineered product packaging over time to reduce the overall size and allow for more efficient shipping, which reduces the carbon output associated with shipping products.

Nevertheless, Turtle Beach Corporation plans to go further. By 2023, the Company aims to introduce carbon neutral products and place carbon impact labeling on select products. Turtle Beach’s ESG team is investigating potential sources of post-consumer recycled plastics (PCR) and ways to best integrate PCRs into future products. By 2024, the goal is to incorporate at least 10% PCRs into select products. These actions will not only minimize Turtle Beach Corporation’s environmental impact, but will also enable Turtle Beach, ROCCAT, and Neat Microphones customers to make informed purchasing decisions that support a more sustainable lifestyle.
