Circular Economy

Circular Economy

GP engages collaboratively with global clients to re-examine business models, to strengthen current approaches and to plan for continual evolution towards a circular model based on knowledge about disposition of retired electronic assets and managing their movement through reverse supply chains.

Reuse and recycling of electronic equipment impacts the entire supply chain in a positive manner. Reuse extends the useful life of IT assets, resulting in less raw material being needed to manufacture new products. Decreased demand for raw materials means less strip mining and less energy consumed. It also results in decreased landfill waste.

Recycling obsolete electronics diverts material from landfill or incineration. GP invests in innovative technology to produce clean recyclables that can be used as a feedstock to replace virgin raw materials in making new products.

Extracting more value from materials, through reuse and recycling, is a good economic decision and plays an important role in the circular economy.

Recognizing you manage what you measure, we have developed a sustainability calculator for measuring carbon savings by choosing to reuse and recycle electronics.

New Sustainability Calculator for IT and Data Center Assets

GP's Sustainability Calculator provides our clients with industry-leading environmental reporting when reusing, redeploying and recycling all types of IT equipment.

The calculator is powered by manufacturers’ data on the most commonly used IT equipment, including laptops, servers, PCs, monitors, networking equipment and printers, in addition to our own proprietary processing information. Clients are able to calculate carbon savings from their IT asset disposition program, which enables:

  • Aligning their IT asset disposition program closer to their corporate sustainability goals
  • Smarter and more sustainable decision making about managing IT assets
  • Quantifying Scope 3 emissions associated with disposition of used IT assets
  • Achieving higher utilization per device
  • Improving value recovery
  • Measuring and improving environmental outcomes

What is Reported?

Carbon savings from reuse of whole units and components, and recycling of IT equipment is reported from the calculator. In addition to tons of carbon saved, we also provide carbon savings equivalency metrics, which provide a user- friendly way to visualize the results.

The GP Sustainability Calculator provides clients with transparent sustainability reporting suitable to contribute to corporate carbon accounting. Our robust and up-to-date data sets and transparent calculations provide proof points to withstand internal and external audits.

How It Works

The engine behind the calculator is independently sourced and verified and regularly updated. It includes more product categories than others on the market, including a wide range of cloud materials.

Benefits of Working with GP

We provide accurate and complete quarterly reports to our clients, detailing carbon avoided by their current ITAD program. Because IT equipment continues to evolve, we recognize the importance of updating our calculator to stay in sync with the marketplace. We ensure that the information is current and relevant through regular maintenance and updates, including new product categories and the most current assay findings.

Reusing Assets Yields Significant Sustainability Gains

The new GP Sustainability Calculator empowers our clients to quantify carbon savings not only from recycling, but also from the reuse of IT assets, an important differentiator from most calculators available. This matters because compared to recycling, the reuse of electronics results in significantly higher carbon savings.
