Our customers and suppliers have made strong commitments to reduce their impact on the environment and in particular to reduce their CO2 emissions. Reducing waste, promoting recycling and reducing its carbon footprint have thus become relevant topics in their CSR policies.
Unlike the traditional “produce-consume-dispose” model, the circular economy concept advocates the sustainable production and consumption of goods that go through eco-design, repair, reuse, waste prevention and finally recycling and polishing of raw materials.
Faced with an exhaustion of metallic minerals and an increasing consumption of WEEE, their successful management is today a real challenge. Businesses are overflowing with thousands of electronic devices, which represent a haven of resources for circular economies.
Codeogroup can meet three of the challenges of societal demand from large companies by extending the life of their IT equipment, reducing WEEE and avoiding CO2 emissions linked to the production of new equipment.
Codeogroup provides concrete solutions to improve the circular economy performance of its customers. Refurbishing can not only support the digital revolution in business, but also respond to the challenges of sustainable development, depletion of raw materials and social responsibility while reducing costs and even making money.
Since 2017, we have joined the Union of Inter-professional Refurbishment and Regeneration of Computer, Electronic and Telecom Equipment (SIRRMIET), which is actively working for legal changes in favour of the circular economy and the reduction of WEEE through reuse.
Codeogroup is part of the ORDI 3.0 network, a "national territory project", developed with the support of the entire local authority to develop a national network for the collection, renovation and redistribution of IT equipment that will help reduce a digital divide.
When we cannot give a second life to a piece of equipment, we make sure that it is recycled in the best possible conditions from the following partners :
Collection and recycling of our electronic and electrical equipment waste.
Collection and recycling of our chemical waste: batteries and aerosols
Collection and recycling of our medical equipment components.
Collection and recycling of smartphones after deletion of data
In 2022, the Codeo Group and three partners from the Rhône-Alpes region have joined forces to create a center of expertise in reuse and the social and solidarity economy.
With a surface area of 7,200 m2 and a processing capacity of more than 500,000 equipments per year, this industrial site brings together a complete ecosystem under one roof: environmental, social and economic sustainability.
