As a responsible British company, Viglen is committed to developing products and solutions that protect the safety and health of our customers, our facilities and employees in the short term and the long run.
By making changes to the ethos of the company along with a more energy efficient product range, we can reduce our Carbon footprint while helping our customers reduce theirs. This attitude is present at all levels and facets of the company — starting with our energy efficient Headquarters near St Albans in Hertfordshire and ending with an energy efficient IT hardware and services delivered to you.
Viglen has been involved for a while in developing an exciting range of products and services designed to improve your environment. These EnviroQuiet products have much less energy requirements than standard, and much lower noise emissions. We feel that offering environmentally friendly computers allows our valued customers to join with us helping to lower total carbon emissions, while saving them money in the long run. The EnviroQuiet label doesn’t just cover low power PCs and Servers though — we also have new packaging to reduce discarded cardboard and new services covering recycling and safe disposal of IT equipment.
Highlight on WEEE
The WEEE compliance is a hot topic, and rightly so as it will go some way to reduce the poor ethical attitudes toward waste that some suppliers have. The WEEE compliance closes the IT hardware lifecycle loop, by making the supplier responsible for the recycling and disposing of their own equipment. Viglen has always operated a no-landfill policy when it comes to recycling and has been offering redeployment / recycling services for years.
Viglen is proud to announce the completion of signing up with recycling industry innovators Veolia as a WEEE Compliance scheme partner.
Recast of the WEEE Directive: The new WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU has been published in issue L197 of the Official Journal on 24 July 2012.
Veolia is an innovative company with exceptional credentials in all areas of recycling and government compliance schemes. Viglen will be working with Veolia to ensure we comply completely with government regulations.
Veolia membership number: WEE/GE0043SY.
