Our Sustainable Solutions

We offer technology solutions which are carefully designed and managed with the environment in mind.

We ensure that all our partners share this ethos and are utilizing sustainable technology in the same way we are. We arrange frequent calls to discuss new technology and introduce ways to involve our customers.

We also like to share advice to help business's start taking small steps to make difference. For example, office equipment energy consumption could be reduced by 23% if all office equipment had and utilized low-power mode. If all desktop computers and printers were turned off for the night, energy consumption would be further reduced by 9%. If every PC in the world were shut off for one night, the energy saved could light the Empire State Building for over 30 years.

Apollo is also a valued contributor to the WEEE recycle scheme where we organised the collection and disposal of old or unused electrical equipment. Responsible recycling and we always guarantee to use certified electronics recycling companies to ensure the proper disposal of used electronics.

We arrange frequent calls with manufacturers such as Google and Acer.

Another way in which we are contributing is by trading in old devices, our suppliers and special distributors offers are available for you to trade in old devices (Apple recycles old devices to reduce waste, while also lowering the cost for next device purchase.) - giving the customer benefits for being sustainable.

Google Flex is a perfect example of how technology is moving forwards and allowing us to prolong the life of old hardware in order to reduce our hardware waste. GoogleFlex is an operating system that can be installed on any old device and can restore.

Sustainable for us is sending the same engineer on your managed service visits within a certain area to reduce unnecessary travel and journeys.
