Alchemy partners with Greenly to certify carbon savings

To support businesses on their journey to Net Zero, Alchemy - a fast-growing circular tech company - has launched its partnership with carbon-accounting platform Greenly, making it the 'first and only' device refurbisher able to certify and calculate the CO2e savings of each device it sells.

With this partnership, Greenly carried out in depth analysis of Alchemy’s refurbishment process – from logistics, processing, repair and distribution – and collated details on the CO2e of raw materials for devices, manufacturing, transportation, and end of life emissions. This has allowed Alchemy to uniquely provide complete transparency on the CO2e of each device it sells, with the Greenly certification ultimately enabling businesses to understand the complete environmental impact of their device estate and report on sustainability metrics more accurately.

Stephen Wise, Global Marketing Director, Circular Economy, at Alchemy, says: “As businesses grapple with becoming more sustainable, we’re looking to provide ways for them to demonstrate positive impact more easily. The first step to developing a more sustainable business means reducing emissions as much as possible, before offsetting what cannot be reduced.

“Opting for refurbished IT devices avoids 76.05kg of CO2 emissions on average[1]. Our new partnership with Greenly makes us the only provider able to certify the CO2e avoided with each individual device purchased. Our partnership also means that businesses can filter the models they want to purchase by their sustainability credentials, making it easier to measure potential savings against sustainability goals.

“It’s important for businesses to understand both the environmental and financial impact of their tech in their strategies to meet Net Zero. Reducing a business’s CO2 impact through refurbished tech is particularly important for companies with large Scope 3 emissions, such as service companies or those that outsource most of their operations.”
