For a better future

Our world needs a change. The issue of sustainability is at the heart of our company. We want to contribute our share to a positive future. Because only if we preserve what we love tomorrow’s generations can experience an intact nature.

Our Goals

 

Prime Computer does not simply aim to comply with legal requirements but play a leading role in sustainability. We want to do everything we can in terms of our CO2 footprint, waste reduction, and social responsibility.

  • Since 2020, we have been working in a completely climate-neutral manner at our headquarters in St.Gallen.
  • We aim to manufacture all our products along the entire production chain in a climate-neutral manner through CO2 savings and compensation.
  • We join the “Climate Action Partnership at the European Technology Chamber” and commit ourselves to the UN’s sustainable development goals in the fight against climate change.
  • We follow a circular approach that focuses on our products’ energy efficiency, sustainable materials management, reuse and recycling of products.

Our Actions

  • Prime Computer offers a Second Life Cycle Program where retired hardware can be returned for a second use. This is ecologically much more advantageous than direct recycling. The residual value of the hardware benefits you when you buy new hardware from Prime Computer. More information can be found on this page: Second Life Cycle
  • When leasing Prime Computer products within the Prime Computer as a Service program, retired hardware can be handed in for a second use, too.
  • We plant two trees per sold product.
  • Our company car fleet consists exclusively of electric and hybrid vehicles. The employees who travel to work by car, if possible, form carpools. Apart from the employees in production, all staff members have the possibility (independent from Corona) to work several days a week in the home office. This saves car trips.
  • We promote diversity because we are convinced that we all benefit from diversity and equal opportunities and because we are firmly opposed to any form of discrimination.

Our Products

Sustainability is in focus from the very first development step of a new Prime Computer product. For this reason, no mechanical parts are built into our mini-PCs and servers, and they are protected by a milled housing made of recycled aluminum. Thus we achieve numerous environmental advantages over conventional IT hardware.

  • With passive cooling, we have to install extremely energy-efficient components and no fan has to be powered. This way, prime computer products consume up to 80% less power.
  • Without mechanical parts, with high-quality components and the omission of fans that can get dirty and clogged, our products are extremely reliable and fail-safe. This applies to dirty, dusty, or greasy ambient air as well. As a result, our products fail less frequently, need to be replaced less often, and much less electronic waste is generated.
  • Our mini-PCs and servers are designed for a much longer product life than competitor’s products. Over a longer period of time, you save additional hardware, which reduces electronic waste and saves resources that would have been necessary for additional mini-PCs and servers.
  • We make sure that our products remain easy to repair despite their resistance to dirt and dust. With all Prime Computer products, the exchangeable components are easily accessible and nothing is glued. So in the event of a component failure or an upgrade, only one component needs to be replaced and nothing intact is wasted.
