DURABILIT is an award-winning company (http://www.durabilit.eu/Plone/company/history) that has been active in Green IT since 2005, serving customers all over the world. Apart from being a European leader in the field of refurbished IT network hardware, DURABILIT has also been involved in policy making and raising environmental awareness. As consultants and advisors DURABILIT helps many organisations to make their IT greener and reduce their overall CO2 emissions in a cost effective way.
In the last couple of years DURABILIT’s work has gained international recognition through several nominations and awards.
DURABILIT has developed the innovative and widely recognized Greener Network Methodology which shows the negative environmental impact of the supply chain and the production phase of products. Most CO2 emissions take place in the production phase of products, and not in the usage phase. By re-using products and extending their lifecycle, the negative impact of production is minimized and significant reductions in CO2 emissions are achieved.
DURABILIT also champions the idea of DURABUYING – which basically means that if you can purchase the same item used/refurbished and there is no difference in quality, then you should always do so. After all, it is called global warming, and not local warming!
