Environmentally Responsible Networking
With our long history of refurbishing and reselling IT equipment, environmental responsibility is a fundamental principal at Curvature. Our commitment to the environment drives us to develop programs that encourage green IT practices by making them financially beneficial as well as environmentally friendly.
Green IT can be a challenging proposition for many organizations. Recycling, eco-responsible, energy efficient and carbon-neutral innovations are often expensive to implement. Many IT managers want to adopt environmentally friendly practices, but not if it means sacrificing infrastructure, application or security budgets.
Asset Recovery: It Pays to be Green
By buying, refurbishing and reselling equipment, Curvature reduces e-waste. In 2013, 501,875 items we shipped were pre-owned/used. This resulted in 3,640,630lbs. (1,651,361kgs.) of potential e-waste that was saved from landfills. That equates to 1,820 tons (1,651 metric tons) and represents nearly 3,150 dump trucks lined up for almost 8 miles (or 13 kilometers)!
