Why sustainability credentials are now a ‘must’ and not a ‘nice to have’
by Evrim Eravci
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is no longer just a ‘nice to have’ for large companies and is now a business ‘must’. Research conducted by CRN has shown that sustainability is now one of the top three considerations for corporate decision makers when they select IT service providers. It has been estimated that the green IT market will be worth up to $30bn by 2024; so, there is undoubtedly a great deal of potential for both VAR’s and the partner ecosystem that support them.
Procurri have long been focused on increasing sustainability and maximizing the value from IT equipment to benefit both businesses and the environment. We are introducing a new Carbon Offset Calculator which can assist organizations to monetize the carbon value of their old assets by extending the life of older assets through our remarketing program and parts harvesting. This reduces IT disposals and feeds our circular economy.
So, what can your business do to help firm up your green credentials while maximising value? Consider the following:
Using the Procurri Carbon Offset Calculator tool
The Procurri Calculator coupled with the Procurri methodology statement creates a case for organizations to justify that by working with Procurri to have legacy assets reused rather than recycled releases a carbon offset value that can be included in an organisations ESG report. One such client has reported savings of 8,000,000 Kg of Co2!

Procurri’s ITAD (IT Asset Disposition) and Lifecycle Services program manages and tracks businesses assets providing a full chain of custody, right through from verification to redeployment or recycling. Assets that are truly end-of-life are recycled in accordance with WEEE, R2 and e-Stewards guidelines, although this is a last resort. We will always put forth our best efforts to maximize the value within existing IT equipment while guiding our customers through the process to achieve the best result.
Consider procuring laptops through Procurri
Through Procurri’s partnership with Circular Computing, remanufactured laptops, presented as new with a 3-year warranty can be delivered in place of brand-new equipment. These units are certified Carbon Neutral, enabling organizations to report a 300Kg Co2 saving per unit on their ESG reporting. In our experience the users see no material difference in either the quality or performance. In fact, the quality is such, that unless told, they are unaware their device is not a brand-new unit.
At Procurri, we always work to maximize value – for equipment, for businesses, and for the environment.
