We Gave Our Financial Services Client More Than They Banked On
With our proven history in sustainable IT asset recovery, we were able to give a leading global financial services company a bespoke, flexible, and intuitive solution that larger companies couldn’t.
Our client needed to consolidate network infrastructure across their North Eastern data centres in a way that made good commercial sense and supported their net zero goals.
The client presented a list of several thousand parts to be recovered and asked for a proposal that would be measured against other bidders. They needed robust operational, logistical, and time-sensitive solutions that would continue to put the bank on course to a more sustainable future.
Our client reached out to us on the recommendation that we are pioneers in IT sustainability. Our experts brought a level of knowledge and innovation that was essential for this advanced technology environment. Our insight in this space meant we could anticipate what clients often aren’t in a position to see, with an over the horizon view to quickly reconcile oversights in their equipment inventory.
As well as offering the best-case commercial outcome, our tailored approach enabled us to co-engineer a strategy that looked at solutions through a consumer, manufacturer, and redistributor lens. Our specialists guaranteed that, post recovery, every acquired asset’s utility could be extended to the highest degree.
Alongside seamless asset disposition, our client received a report that included a comprehensive breakdown of embodied carbon in every item we had recovered.
This gave measurable, positive data relating to product re-use, with a level of detail that delighted our client, who came away with the tools to help target the areas for future improvement on supply chain and Scope 3 impact, based on the principles of circular IT.
Our white glove service took the client on an end-to-end journey that handled their technology estate with due care and consideration, delivering a transformational outcome of tangible sustainability that they had not anticipated.
The internet has a physical footprint as it requires electricity to run the datacentres, the networking infrastructure and the devices we use to access it. This electricity produces a carbon footprint. Websites that are designed in an energy efficient manner produce less carbon. The more autoplay video, high res images and content on a site, the more energy it takes show this content- meaning a greater carbon footprint for the page.
Our Low Carbon Mode reduces energy consumption by displaying darker colours.
"OLED screens that light up each pixel individually are becoming increasingly popular. They present an opportunity for digital designers to save energy. As you might expect, darker colours require less energy to illuminate, with black being the lowest energy colour and white being the most energy intensive." sustainablewebdesign.org
We were inspired to build a more energy efficient site through our friend Gerry McGovern and from learning about Wholegrain digital. We consciously designed and built this site to highlight this issue by showing a standard and low carbon mode. Our standard mode is ‘cleaner’ than 95% of all other websites tested and we’re focussed on continually improving this.
