Improving your Carbon Footprint through Data-Driven Insights

Most businesses take a “one size fits all” approach to providing mobile devices and services. However, a lack of visibility and data on the real usage of those devices, often hides significant wasted investment on technology that simply isn’t needed or used.

Taking Carbon Responsibility Seriously

We’re Committed to Reducing the Impact of Carbon in IT

Step 1: Don’t Buy What You Don’t Need

If up to 60% of your users aren’t regularly using their work mobile phone, do they really need it?

At Utelize, we typically see between 20%60% of users who are not regularly using their corporate mobile and between 5%15% of users who no longer use their phone at all.

Which begs the question of whether current mobile strategies are keeping pace with the needs of end-users and whether IT resources and investment can be more effectively allocated.

To meet these changing needs, Utelize have developed a wide range of sustainable alternative mobile device and network solutions that can reduce your carbon footprint and deliver more productive technology to your users.

Step 2: Device Lifetime Sustainability

We’re offsetting the lifetime carbon emissions of all new devices that we supply

On average, approximately 80Kg of carbon emissions are generated from the production and use of a corporate smartphone over a three year lifecycle,

As part of our own ESG programme, Utelize has committed to not only offsetting device carbon emissions for all devices that we supply, but to achieving that during the typical lifetime of a mobile device (3-4 years). So, where you do need to invest in new devices, you’ll do so knowing you’ve offset the impact.

Our Reforestation Partner 

The Eden Reforestation Project is a non-profit NGO that works in developing countries to rebuild natural landscapes destroyed by deforestation. 

To offset the approx. 80Kg of carbon emissions produced by new smartphones, Eden will plant 5 new trees for every new smartphone we supply, with each new sapling typically absorbing around 20Kg of carbon per year.

Why replant in Madagascar

Madagascar is Eden Projects’ most prolific tree planting project nation, however, tragically more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed.

As of November 2020, over 360 million trees have been planted in Madagascar by Eden Projects employees, with an average of 14 million more trees being planted every month.

Thousands of local villagers now have consistent employment and are now able to send their children to school, provide food and clothing for dependent family members.

‘More than 90% of Madagascar’s primary forests are destroyed, impacting people living in extreme poverty the most.’

Step 3: Reducing the Digital Divide

Building Digital Classrooms in South Africa

You might take access to computers, the internet and technology in general for granted – but imagine if you were growing up in a town or community where such access was non-existent.

That’s where Solar Learning Labs come in. Built from converted shipping containers, these computer labs are solar-powered, which means they are self-sufficient and can be placed just about anywhere in the world. 

Teaming up with Computer Aid and Dell Technologies, Utelize has created a simple innovative solution that offers unique CSR benefits, allowing companies to securely gift their old devices whilst making a real difference in the world.
