Sustainable IT with IGEL

IGEL’s vision is to transform the way the world works, creating better outcomes for people, organizations and our planet.

IGEL helps reduce your carbon footprint by using aging hardware for longer, optimizing resources across your IT infrastructure, and reducing energy consumption which shows
a positive effect on IT budget savings.

The challenges IT faces

57 M

metric tons of e-waste in 2021 worldwide

2.5%

of global emissions comes from End User Computing 1

3%

of global power generation is consumed by EUC

83%

of a device’s total carbon footprint is generated during manufacturing 2

Steps towards a sustainable future

Responsible business practices to protect the environment are a fundamental part of our policies and partnerships. IGEL creates better outcomes for the planet through the interconnected principles of the three R’s – reducing, reusing, and recycling resources and products.

REDUCE CO2 EMISSIONS and CONSERVE ENERGY

Making responsible choices for energy-efficient devices and optimizing the resources available can reduce the impact IT makes on the environment.

  • Choose responsibly manufactured hardware and energy efficient devices
  • Transform the endpoint device into a unified workspace with IGEL OS
  • Reduce power use by more than 22% with lean IGEL OS on the device*
  • Replace Windows with IGEL OS to reduce power use on the device by up to 49%*
  • Cloud environments decrease reliance on energy-hungry legacy data centers
  • Enable secure hybrid work to cut the commute

Reuse

REPURPOSE HARDWARE

Reuse the resources you already own through repurposing and optimizing greatly reduces the environmental impact.

  • Upgrading aging thin clients, PCs, and laptops with IGEL OS extends the lifespan of that device
  • IGEL’s ecosystem of compatible solutions optimizes resources and offers a modern digital workspace
  • Enable secure and quick access to apps and data from anywhere supports device sharing
USE AGING DEVICES FOR LONGER WITH IGEL

Recycle

Reduce e-waste

The responsible management of IT asset disposal reduces e-waste in landfills and the associated adverse affects on human health. Recycling precious metals and minerals used in devices reduces the demand for mining natural resources.

  • IGEL partners with services that recycle e-waste responsibly in each region
  • IGEL supports social projects to reuse disposed of devices

Responsible Partnerships

  • Commitment to corporate social responsibility is a core ethos of IGEL. A clear code of ethics, supply chain policies, and environmental reports are based on the sustainable development goals (SDG) set by the United Nations General Assembly.
    • IGEL’s partners HP, Lenovo, and LG Business Solutions use sustainable practices to reduce carbon footprint
  • Responsible IT asset disposal; IGEL partners with ITAD services that recycle e-waste or repurpose as computing resources for social projects
