Preserving our environment
Our commitment to running a sustainable business
We recognise that Altodigital has a major role to play in crafting a cleaner planet. We are committed to managing our greenhouse gas emissions and going beyond the standard office pledges to turn the lights off and cycle to work. Sustainability is at the very core of our offering and the way we operate as a company.
Extending the Life of Devices
Our BSI-accredited remanufacturing facility extends the life of thousands of devices every year. Xerox remanufactured devices featured at the COP26 conference, with devices being donated to charities including Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity in the local area to extend the legacy of this landmark event in Glasgow.
We continue to invest in research and development in this important contributor to the circular economy enabling us to offer products that reduce waste by 90% and energy consumption by over 40%.
Sustainability With Support
Our engineers live and work in the communities they serve. Our remote teams and sensor technology enable resolution before you even know there’s a problem, or you can utilise self-help resources designed to empower our customers if this is your preference. This enables us to burn less fuel, have quicker response times and maintain your device uptime.
A Local Focus
Our community plays a vital role in our business and we like to help where we can. With staff volunteering activities, we support the local community with different projects - from fundraising to hands on tree planting and litter picking. We also believe that looking after your office environment means more than keeping your desk tidy!
As part of Xerox Business Solutions, we have become part of a worldwide drive to make a positive impact on our global communities. Xerox is operating business in a sustainable way, have a roadmap in place to achieve carbon neutrality no later than 2040 and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 60% by 2030.
Reducing devices and paper usage not only saves immediate costs through raw materials and energy usage, but also saves supply chain costs in manufacturing, transportation, and warehousing.
