Even in this age of the virtual cloud, smartphones, computers, tablets, servers and other connected objects are very much physical. Their impact on the environment starts from the day they’re manufactured and continues through the end of their life cycle. Digital technology not only uses up many of our resources, but it also emits 2.5% of greenhouse gas emissions and consumes about 10% of the electricity in France. As our societies’ digitalization increases so does its impact on the environment. Our rapid renewal of devices puts a strain on the environment. To remedy this, we need to change our consumption habits and our usage.
ALTERNATIVE helps you meet these challenges by ensuring the responsible and circular management of your IT assets.
Compliance and accountability have guided the company’s development since its creation in 1999.
Sustainable IT means taking into account economic and environmental aspects throughout the lifecycle of IT products, from design to disposal.
Sustainable IT includes practices such as optimising energy consumption, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, energy-efficient design of equipment, use of sustainable and recyclable materials, and educating users about good practice.
IT asset recovery refers to the process of collecting and recycling obsolete or end-of-life IT equipment. Rather than throwing these devices away, the aim is to collect them, repair them if necessary, and put them back into circulation or recycle them appropriately. This is done after erasing the data. This helps to reduce electronic waste, save natural resources and limit the environmental impact of the IT industry.
