Sustainable IT

Take advantage of the value in used IT equipment

Make your business more sustainable and CSR responsible

All major companies must adhere to CSR and corporate social responsibility. This is both something customers expect, but also a requirement in the Danish Financial Statements Act. With increasing environmental regulations and reporting requirements, the focus on sustainable operations is constantly increasing. With an increased focus on an IT life cycle approach, your company / organization's profile can be made more sustainable.

At Foxway Distribution, our business is primarily surplus products, which includes both new and used IT equipment. We work to ensure that the use of IT equipment shifts from a "use-once" culture to a more sustainable, circular and recyclable approach. It is a step that any company can take to create a more sustainable world and not least the future. The circular economy is the economy of the future.

Take advantage of the value in used IT equipment

For many companies and organizations, sustainability is a growing concern. How do you, as a company, ensure that as many of the company's business parts as possible are sustainable and responsible? Our life cycle management is a strong example of how companies can take an active part in the circular economy. Choosing a more sustainable way to dispose your IT equipment helps both the environment and saves your business money.

We often see that many companies sell their used IT equipment after 3-4 years of use. And by repairing, deleting data and updating the devices we receive here at Foxway Distribution, we get the opportunity to extend the life of the equipment for another 3-4 years. This allows the used IT equipment to be reused rather than being sent for destruction. The computer devices we receive that cannot be recycled directly, we take components from for other use. What cannot be used is sent for destruction, where the materials are recycled for new production.

UN world goal #12

Responsible consumption and production.

In 2015, the UN adopted 17 world goals for more global sustainable development. One of these goals was responsible consumption and production. Here, the UN's focus point is that effective management of common natural resources, and the disposal of toxic waste and pollutants, are important objectives for achieving this goal. In addition, the UN wants member states to encourage industries, businesses and consumers to recycle and reduce their waste.

Denmark must be transformed into a circular economy.
The Danish government also wants to make an ambitious contribution to the realization of the UN's 17 world goals. On 1 September 2018, the government therefore launched its strategy for circular economy, where they, based on 15 concrete initiatives, focus and push in the transition to a more sustainable society, where materials and products are recycled and thereby minimize waste.

3 tips to make your business more IT sustainable

Formulate an IT procurement policy

Sustainable procurement can advantageously be included as an integral part of your CSR efforts, and, as in all other areas, management support is necessary for focus and progress in the work. Think about your goals and assess when, buying, reusing and possibly leasing IT equipment can have different benefits in your company depending on its needs.

Reuse IT - with guarantee included

When a meeting room needs to be designed or a computer replaced, it is a good idea to consider recycling. Used office furniture, computers and telephones can easily be given a new life without your organization having to compromise on functionality, durability or appearance. Used IT can have advantages like IT budget savings, and often it can be purchased with a guarantee, so you as a company ensure, that the purchase also becomes a sensible choice.

Consider the divestiture phase

Phased out IT can be of great value. Optimize your purchases in relation to opportunities to send discarded goods for direct recycling. For example, when buying new electronics, it may be possible to sell or donate obsolete phones or computers.
