As well as a financial benefit to your organisation our ReviveIT service provides a more sustainable model for IT usage globally. One study suggests as much as 240KG of fossil fuels, 22kg of chemicals and 1500kg of water are used in the supply chain and production of a single computer 1. By finding secondary markets for working Apple devices our ReviveIT service helps to reduce the global demand and therefore production of new devices, reducing emissions and the associated mining of raw materials.
We can also help organisations demonstrate carbon savings when trading in Apple devices based on a little known fact.
Up to 95% of a devices carbon footprint comes from its production and transportation 2, by trading in devices, organisations share this carbon footprint with its secondary and tertiary user. When taking this into account with the potential to reduce the number of new devices manufactured outlined above, our ReviveIT scheme can deliver a real difference in the battle against carbon emissions.
