Eurotunnel’s corporate social responsibility policies targeting energy reduction and waste management received recognition when the company were awarded and IFW Environmental Award for Leadership in Sustainable Development during 2010.
Eurotunnel has continued to reinforce these policies and to further demonstrate their commitment to the environment and the right for every child to receive a good education. The computers donated will go on to impact 4152 Africa students as they have the chance to use PC’s for the first time.
Computers 4 Africa’s decommissioning service guarantees complete data destruction; the data wiping software used is up to both DOD and MOD standards. All equipment is PAT tested and refurbished prior to being shipped to schools, colleges and various non-government organisations across Africa. Equipping young people in Africa with IT skills can improve future career prospects and lift entire families and communities out of poverty.
After the collection was complete Geoff Bishop from Eurotunnel said:
“My complete experience of the hardware transfer from the initial feasibility study to planning and onto the collection process has been extremely positive.
I am very pleased that our redundant IT equipment has found the opportunity of a re-invigorated life. Computers 4 Africa provided support and partnership to make it all possible with the minimum amount of fuss.” Geoff Bishop, MIS UK Manager Eurotunnel.
