SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

For people and the environment

We recognise that how we conduct our business today should have a strong focus on sustainability. We believe in the philosophy that sustainable business is successful business and continue to refine our processes to ensure maximum benefit for both current and future generations.

Actively promoting refurbishment

Our aim is to make an effective contribution to sustainable development and to conserving resources. To achieve this aim we use our core competency of innovative technology management. By professionally refurbishing and remarketing IT equipment we extend its useful life.

Every year CHG-MERIDIAN refurbishes over 500,000 IT devices for remarketing. Our remarketing experts sell refurbished equipment all over the world and are thus able to generate revenue for our customers that is usually in excess of normal market prices. We are continuing to expand our re-use concept so that we can offer all customers certification that their old equipment has been reused and disposed of in an eco-friendly and socially beneficial way.

Economical: switching our global server infrastructure to cloud technology has significantly cut our electricity consumption.

Reuse is a top priority

CHG-MERIDIAN Belgium launched a new pilot project in 2014 – the first of its kind in the world. When procuring new IT equipment, customers can order an eco-friendly and socially beneficial certified process for their computers that also helps a good cause. Big-ticket orders were received from customers such as consultancy firm Deloitte and Belgian health insurance company CMA (Christelijke Mutualiteit Antwerpen).

Two non-profit organisations recognised by the United Nations (UN) are partners in the project: Close the Gap, which supplies schools and training establishments in developing countries with equipment that is still in good working order, and WorldLoop, which collects defective used equipment in developing countries and takes it to be professionally recycled in order to recover valuable raw materials.

Significant rise in energy efficiency

CHG-MERIDIAN has teamed up with the TÜV Rheinland safety standards authority to offer customers energy-efficient data centre certification. As part of the audit we check air conditioning systems, the power supply, CO₂ emissions, and data centre management and then use the findings to identify a range of actions for optimisation. A three-year certification cycle ensures that operators regularly invest in state-of-the-art technologies.

A successful outcome is a double win: our customers enhance their efficiency and make an important contribution to protecting the environment.

We focus on sustainability at all times, in everything we do. This attitude forms a firm and reliable basis for our growth and our relationships with employees, customers, business partners, and society.
