Sacha: The fastest growing waste stream is e-waste. Did you know that 10% of global energy and 4% of CO2 emissions are generated through ICT? That’s enormous! The fastest growing waste stream is e-waste. We predict that by 2030, 74 million metric tonnes of e-waste are going to be on the planet if we don’t change now.

The impact is enormous not just on the environment but also on our health. And we need to act now and do more. When choosing sustainable tech it is really important that you choose companies that avoid and reduce CO2 emissions… that recycle their products… and that are third-party certified.

We decrease environmental impacts through our technology because we are 100% climate-neutral and that is over the lifetime of 5 years. We give 5 years warranty: [our products] are easy to repair, we use recycled material, we have a second life program where we extend longevity of our products.

And we are on the edge towards circular electronics! This means that we want to close the loop and actually reuse most of the materials. So if you look at the practical impact of Prime Computer products, then if you take…For example, a thousand products compared to regular devices, our products are 5 years which will save up to 1.6 tonnes of CO2 emissions. And depending on the region of where you are and the electricity cost–up to $960,000 US Dollars! Just on those thousand products over 5 years.

So it’s not about the one product but the scale of 1,000. So not just on the environmental impact of doing and prolonging life when using less energy, but if you look at the cost aspect of savings over due time, then it’s a no-brainer. We want to share our experiences and help your IT department make to make more a more sustainable choice. So, we created a Green IT whitepaper. If you’re interested, please click on the link below.
