By recycling e-waste, massive amounts of CO2 can be reduced. NamiGreen E-waste Recycling reduces the country's carbon footprint by recycling waste from companies and households instead of landfilling.

NamiGreen E-waste recycling in Namibia, collects and recycles a considerable amount of used and broken electronics (i.e. e-waste) from both companies and households in Namibia. The company does so to create jobs, prevent landfilling and do something good for the environment.

In the company's pursuit to become even more green, NamiGreen's latest efforts includes measuring the carbon dioxide (CO2) impact  for all of e-waste collected and recycled. Those measurements are in turn presented to their clients with a socalledcertificate of disposal, which includes the amount of CO2-savings, that particular recycling effort has produced.

"Our clients have responded well with the new CO2 measurements, because it puts a concrete measure on their actual recycling effort. Now clients, can say 'we have saved the planet for e.g. 1 ton of CO2' simply by recycling old and broken electronics", says Mr. Per Hansen, CEO of NamiGreen.

In total, NamiGreen estimates that their clients have contributed to a total reduction of 420 tons of CO2 in Namibia alone. Put into perspective, that amount of CO2is what a normal passenger car would emit of CO2 if driven 42 times around our planet Earth!
