Every business is looking to reduce their Carbon footprint. Could changing to Rugged devices help?
The hidden benefit of owning a rugged bit of tech is that it is designed to last.
The fact that you do not need to replace it as often will have a massive positive impact on our planet. If you look into what goes into making a modern smart device anything the industry can do to reduce it will help all of us in the future.
The majority of carbon emissions come from the process of making the device.
Analysis showed that smart tech emissions will reach 125 megatons of carbon dioxide by the end of 2020. That’s an increase from 4 percent of total ICT emissions in 2010 to 11 percent this year. This footprint, more like bootprint, is driven by the meagre two years that a device is used on average. And if you factor in that less than 1 percent of smartphones get recycled the picture only looks worse.
The majority of tablets and phones are manufactured in China, a country using coal as their main source of power generation and we all know the damage that does to the ecosystem.
