We Gave IP Phones a Second Life

Talk To Us About Your Retired IT
One of our partners mentioned that they no longer needed their IP phones. They were taking up space in the office and they wanted to know if they’d be of any use to another organisation. Of course, we offered to help.

The challenges

IP Phones are used around the world, particularly in telecoms and the healthcare industry. Often, when organisations have finished using them, they are unsure what to do with them and assume they have no further value.

The solutions

As champions of the Circular Economy we keep technology in use for longer. Following testing and cleaning at our Danish facility, we used our market insight to find a user for these phones.

The results

In December 2021 we completed a product tear down for some of the most used networking and telephony equipment.

Using the life cycle analysis data we have from this work, we were able to give our partner real world data.
Keeping these IP phones in use prevented 1.73 tonnes of embodied carbon* from being wasted before the end of its useful life.

Or, to look at it another way, 1.73 tonnes of embodied carbon wasn’t created as the organisation who is now using them, didn’t need to purchase new ones.

These IP phones are now being used by a healthcare provider. Less eWaste, less landfill, less carbon and more raw materials in the ground.

Aligning to the principles of the circular economy has never been more important.

Small actions have big impacts.
