Successful balance for 2018!
Last year we picked up and worked on more than 360,000 IT & mobile devices with a total weight of over 2,500 tonnes from 700 companies and public institutions in eight European countries.
We were able to remarket two thirds of the hardware after data erasure and refurbishment. 10,800 devices were distributed to schools and non-profit organizations.
By reusing the devices, we saved the following resources compared to new production:
- 16,440 tonnes of metals and minerals (iron equivalents)
- 11,600 tonnes of greenhouse gases (CO2 equivalents)
- 36,560 megawatt hours of energy
