For every repurposed or recycled item we get a certificate that guarantees the destruction of all the data,” says Smals CEO Frank Robben. At the same time, we are extending our social mission by supporting social protection and health in a fully-fledged CSR policy, in terms of good governance, working conditions, environment, fair business practices and community involvement. For example, Smals uses 100% green electricity and keeps down the energy bill in its data centres with innovative air and water cooling. We fully reimburse commuting by public transport and sort our waste conscientiously. The specialist processing of ICT material, the proceeds from which we now donate to Natuurpunt for tree planting, is another very tangible return to society.
