Green IT; Good Business
UN’s Global Goals outline it clearly: We must ALL assume responsibility for the environment and action is required right now. Therefore, we must rethink the way we use and consume IT. We must also rethink what it means to repurpose – to give new life. Our Global Device Management Service factors in Lifecycle Management for equipment right from the start. By using Secure It Recycling and Waste Management, you can establish a new and markedly greener profile.
How it is done: Automated Recycling
In Recycling and Lifecycle Management, a natural part of the focus is placed on bringing down low-tech issues and increasing productivity. Therefore, it is a great benefit that the service is automated. You will be notified if anything has run out or must be renewed and will receive the packaging for shipping. After that, we ensure that the equipment is picked up, regardless of where it is located in the world. This way, we also ensure that the shipping of the equipment is as environmentally friendly as possible.
A sustainable business which is also financially sustainable is a win-win for everyone. It is important to us that your green investment also generates business. Because of this, we create a noticeable financial gain for you. We often see buy-back prices of 10-15% of the investment price which is a gain that could be used for re-investing.
What Equipment Can be Repurposed?
Generally speaking, we buy all IT-related products. However, one prerequisite is that the equipment remains functional and in fair cosmetic condition. We have contacts ready to receive the product types below, regardless of manufacturer:
- Laptop computers and desktop PC's
- Smartphones and tablets
- Storage- and backup equipment
- Network equipment
Can all IT equipment be repurposed? No! If we receive used products that cannot be repurposed, we ensure that they are disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner through our experiences ISO 14001-certified partners.
What about our Data?
In 2022, we at edgemo along with our talented colleagues in edgemo green (formerly Npvision) became a part of Danoffice IT. It so happens that edgemo green are experts in sustainable recycling of IT equipment and they have implemented a management system for information security. In other words, they know what they are doing. In order to secure that internal security requirements are maintained, we conduct our own spot checks which are audited annually.
Therefore, we can confirm, your data is secure! We conduct a data wipe of the used equipment. After the data wipe has been concluded, an overall data wipe report as well as any separate certificates for each element containing data is provided. We are entrusted with the data located on the IT equipment we retrieve and process. This creates a need for a high level of mutual trust and more than anything, the adherence to GDPR. We guarantee 100% destruction of all data in repurposed equipment.
