When optimising your processes, focus on cleaner and more efficient energy with cloud computing brands such as Azure who can improve energy efficiency by up to 93%, and be up to 98% more efficient in carbon footprint than local servers.

Digital Transforming

Embrace more digital solutions and collaboration tools to reduce vehicle carbon emissions. Smarter productivity with Adobe Acrobat and interactions with Cisco Webex and Google Workspace for both the office or classroom.

Eco-friendly Materials

It's time to start sustainable sourcing of products made from recycled material or brands that are carbon neutral, to create a more circular economy. Targus has an impressive sustainable lineup with some products manufactured with up to 30 recycled plastic bottles.

Choose Cloud services

Use green web hosting services that decarbonise data centres. This can include modern cloud services like Google that produce zero net carbon emissions or Amazon aiming to achieve the same by 2040 through wind and solar farms.

eco-friendly packaging

Choose brands that implement eco-friendly packaging. In 2018, Lenovo began implementing the use of an innovative bio-based packaging made from bamboo and sugar cane fiber. Their Thinkpads are delivered in packaging made from 100% biodegrable material or recycled cushioning materials.

Energy-efficient Upgrades

Make energy-efficient upgrades with energy-efficient appliances. Move to LED lights, automate lights with sensors, use smart thermostats and take advantage of natural light for a smarter office in 2023.
