AfB social & green IT has been an expert in IT remarketing for more than 18 years. From IT collection, data destruction according to the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO) to resale or disposal - your used hardware is in safe hands with us. We purchase notebooks, PCs, monitors, smartphones and tablets as well as servers and routers from companies, insurance companies and public clients and give this hardware a second life. With this value creation process, we promote circular economy and create jobs for people with severe disabilities in the primary labour market.

IT sale to AfB

Due to increasing demands on data security and hardware performance, companies replace their IT after a few years, even though most of these IT and mobile devices are still fully functional. By selling commercial IT to refurbishers, you can generate budget for the procurement of new equipment and promote circular economy.

Fair offers for your hardware.

Protecting the environment through green IT

AfB is specialised in remarketing as much IT devices as possible. For many years we have achieved a remarketing rate up to 68%. In terms of the circular economy, remarketing IT hardware is the best for the environment and the climate. Through an impact measurement based on a study by myclimate, we can precisely quantify the resource savings through IT remarketing.

What is IT remarketing?

IT remarketing is the process from purchase to data erasure and refurbishment to resale of used hardware such as notebooks, PCs, smartphones, servers or monitors. In this process, data erasure or data media destruction in accordance with the highest data protection guidelines, such as the German Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) or the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), is essential. IT remarketing enhances the circular economy and increases the life cycle of functioning hardware. This demonstrably saves resources compared to the production of new hardware. AfB enhances inclusion through IT remarketing. 48 % of our employees are people with disabilities.
