Every day we strive to become more sustainable. We are working towards becoming a greener and more sustainable company than we were yesterday. We want to set the standard for how a company in our industry can act responsibly in relation to the environment.
We think PEOPLE – PLANET – PRODUCT – PROFIT in all we do. All four elements must be positively affected by our actions for us to live up to the standards of being a sustainable company.
WE HAVE A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS STRATEGY
Our entire corporate strategy is based on extending the life of liquid-damaged electronic devices to bring them back to life instead of them ending up as scrap. By combining water and Nordic Swan Eco-labelled soap in a patented process we bring the liquid-damaged electronics back to life.
WE REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF ELECTRONIC WASTE
At Techsave, we work hard every day to reduce the huge amount of electronic waste in the world. Since 2007 and until today we have cleaned +25,000 liquid damaged laptops and smartphones. When we save a device we extend the life of it by up to several years and save the environment from between 60-400 kg CO2 per unit.
WE SORT WHAT WE CAN’T SAVE
When we clean a laptop or smartphone that turns out to be damaged beyond repair, we ensure it is disassembled and reused after sorting. Smartphones and computers contain metals such as lithium, aluminum, nickel, gold, silver and copper. The extraction and processing of these metals is a major environmental strain as the processes causes large amounts of CO2 emissions, drains the Earth’s natural resources and destructs natural areas.
Therefore, we make sure to sort the waste so it can be recycled and used for new products. The more we can divide the electronics into fractions, the better we can recycle each metal from the device.
