At IGEL we are committed to developing technologies that reduce the impact on the environment and support sustainable business practices.
End User Computing generates 1% of global GHG annual emissions through the manufacturing of 460 million devices and the associated energy consumed by 4.2 billion users.
IT shouldn’t cost the earth, sustainable End User Computing means repurposing, not replacing. Repurposing existing devices rather than purchasing new computers reduces scope 3 supply chain carbon footprint by 60%. Remote working solutions enabled by thin client computers reduce scope 3 employee commuting emissions by 40% on average and energy efficiency, delivered by the IGEL OS, is improved by between 22-49% depending on the solution and approach.
In fact, a UK financial services customer with 3,150 staff using IGEL OS on existing devices rather than buying new will reduce emissions by over 256,000 kg CO2e , this is equivalent to cutting car travel by 1.5 million km or having an extra 307 acres of mature woodland removing pollution.
