[Richmond Hill, ON] April 17th, 2023—Compugen Inc., Canada's largest privately-owned and operated IT services provider, is pleased to announce it has achieved Cisco’s Environmental Sustainability Specialization, which recognizes partners who have demonstrated the ability to help customers reduce their environmental impact by implementing sustainable practices and technologies.
Compugen has a long history of caring for one another and the Earth. Recognizing that technology companies have a key role to play in fueling the circular economy, Compugen launched Green4Good more than a decade ago: a first-of-its-kind, award-winning program designed to help organizations responsibly and securely recycle their IT assets. Any value generated is then paid forward—either to fund new equipment or contribute to a charity or social cause.
"Environmental sustainability is in our DNA here at Compugen; it’s an area we have focused on for many years and continue to invest heavily in,” remarks Harry Zarek, President and CEO. “We are delighted to receive this designation from Cisco and see it as a reflection of our ongoing commitment to our customers, our communities, and our planet.”
Compugen is one of the few remaining North American Solution Providers that own and operate its own ISO 9001:2015-certified asset disposition warehouse. Additionally, it was the first company worldwide to offer carbon credits for end-of-first-life™ IT assets.
To date, Green4Good has:
- Processed nearly 2M IT assets.
- Raised $3.5M for 225 charities and counting!
- Reused 92% of processed assets (…and recycled the remaining 8%)
