Office Depot® and CompuCom believe that sustainability plays an essential role in the success of our company, our industry, and our communities, now and for future generations. Together, we have 17 sustainability targets aligned with the internationally recognized Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Developed by the United Nations—and agreed on by other governments and over 500 companies—the goals aim to achieve a balance between three sustainability dimensions: environmental, social, and economic.
To increase our sustainability across all of our organizations, our primary focus is on energy consumption, transportation emissions, and enriching our local communities.
In 2019, our Integration center in Paulsboro, NJ implemented an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. This environmental stewardship program is a framework to minimize our environmental impact, reduce the risk of pollution, and ensure our facility is compliant with local, state, and federal regulations. CompuCom is committed to sustainably growing our operations and making sure all of your orders processed through our facility will be done following sound environmental practices.
CompuCom is in the process of evaluating the environmental impact of all the technology products we distribute to our customers. We use the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT), created by the Environmental Protection Agency, to evaluate things like energy efficiency, product longevity, product packaging, material usage, and manufacturing chemicals. We then rank products by their effect on the environment. CompuCom’s goal is to help you choose devices that not only fit your needs and preferences but also meet your environmental goals.
Electronics are the fastest growing solid waste stream in the world. It’s caused, in part, by manufacturers driving consumers into faster and faster upgrade cycles. CompuCom’s mission is to reduce e-waste by reselling and reusing devices. It keeps quality devices in use and out of landfills. For devices that can’t be resold or re-used, we use certified R2 recyclers for minimal environmental impact. In addition, every device that comes through our IT Asset Disposition service is properly wiped of sensitive data to protect your company and brand from costly data breaches.
To stay at the forefront of innovation for e-waste prevention, CompuCom partnered with Intel to develop a battery life diagnostics tool that identifies applications that shorten device lifespans.
