THE STORY

Sharing responsibilities starts with you…

As business and private users of ICT equipment, selling, donating or simply deposing of our old or aging products typically marks the end of their use. But have you ever thought about what happens with these products after that? And, did you know that value can continue to be extracted even though these old computers, monitors, phones and servers are no longer of practical use to us?

 

In the circular economy, everyone from product owner and user, to recoverer and recycler, can contribute to making sure this process works effectively.

It starts with building in transparency and responsibility so that we can take control of what happens with our equipment when we no longer need it while improving the financial, social and econological costs and benefits of using ICT at the same time. The Recover-E® Program is a shared responsibility solution that helps us do just that…in a smart, circular way.
