Industry standard for measuring the environmental benefits of reusing IT
Inrego presents a new industry standard for measuring the environmental benefits of reusing IT
Inrego and IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute have published a new database model to measure the environmental savings of reusing IT. The model is open and free to use for the entire IT reuse industry and anyone who is interested in measuring the environmental savings of reusing IT. The goal is to create a standard for the entire industry and to help companies and organisations to purchase and dispose of used IT equipment. The new database is independent and was developed by scientists to calculate environmental savings for IT equipment down to component level. The model contains information on many different categories of IT products such as laptops, monitors, smartphones, tablets, printers as well as accessories such as adapters, keyboards, and RAM memory.
Christoffer Sandell, CEO Inrego Global:
"I hope that this report will help companies working with Reusing IT by offering a clear and unequivocal tool to show their clients the actual CO2 benefits. And by doing this, to increase the awareness around the positive impact the ITAD-industry has. We have been working with CO2 reporting since 2010, and this has helped us grow. Now we want to use the years of accumulated data the report is founded on, to help the whole industry grow and increase their participation in reducing CO2 emission."
