Ergo First HP Partner in Ireland to Achieve 5-Star Sustainability Award

Ergo First HP Partner in Ireland to Achieve 5-Star Sustainability Award

Dublin — 10th March 2021: Ergo has become the first HP partner in Ireland to earn a 5-Star Sustainability Award from HP, the highest accolade in the multinational’s global sustainability partner programme. Two new projects met HP’s criteria to win the award, one was a sustainability project in the community, the other an educational initiative that promoted ‘the circular economy’ of recycling, as well as waste management, green procurement and transportation.

In the first, Ergo provided Coláiste Eoin, an Irish language secondary school in Dublin, with 200 refurbished laptops to help students further their education. The devices are being tested and updated with a version of the Windows Operating System, after which they will be deep cleaned and delivered ‘as new’ to the school.

As part of ‘the circular economy’ project, Ergo revised its baseline CO2 emissions to meet updated policies and targets that align with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030. Ergo first baselined its carbon footprint back in 2011and has continued to accelerate its environmental actions as the climate change crisis deepened.

John Purdy, CEO of Ergo, commented, “We are proud to be recognized by HP for our sustainability initiatives and environmental policies. As a pioneer of Managed Print Services in Ireland, recycling and eco-friendly devices have always been part of our proposition. Today, sustainability is core to our values and all our business practices.”

Neil Dover, HP Inc. Ireland Country Manager said, “It is inspiring to see the work Ergo are doing in Ireland to drive positive sustainable impact. Collective action is vital, and at HP we have invested in working with our partner ecosystem for 20+ years to bring about meaningful and lasting change. We look forward to our continued partnership with Ergo in accelerating towards a circular and low-carbon economy, building a more diverse, inclusive and equitable supply chain, and improving the vitality and resilience of our local communities.”

Paula O’Brien, Principal at Colaiste Eoin, is delighted to be involved in the project, “Our school is very grateful to Ergo and HP for their support and I’m still in shock from the generosity of this initiative. I have no doubt that the contribution of 200 laptops will make an enormous difference to our pupils in their education.”

Ergo will continue to pursue new ways to reduce the environmental impact of its business through maximizing energy efficiency, cutting down carbon natural resources and reducing the burden of waste and emissions.
