The Liberty Global corporate responsibility strategy is all about multiple wins – for our environment, for our business, and for our communities. By repurposing used IT equipment, we are demonstrating this in practice.
Our partnership with Close the Gap, a UN-backed not-for-profit organization, offers a sustainable way to recycle used office IT equipment and help bridge the digital divide in developing countries. In 2011, we donated 11 pallets of computer hardware, which were refurbished and sent to Kenyan schools and hospitals.
As part of our Climate Challenge program, employees produced a short video following "Dave," one of our desktop computers heading for a new life. Dave went first to a refurbishment center in the Netherlands for a check-up and makeover, and was then shipped to the Ngara Girls' School in Nairobi, where the students put him straight to work alongside other computers we had donated.
