iameco Computers are honored to have received the Energy Globe Award Ireland this year.
The Energy Globes Award Jury in making this Award stated:
The global computer market has a high environmental impact: Global manufacture of ICT equipment, its use and disposal, accounts for 2% of the global CO2 emissions, which is equivalent to the entire aviation industry . 240 kg of fossil fuels and around 1.7 tons of raw materials and water are needed to manufacture an average computer; many of these are rare and finite materials. This year´s National Winner of the Energy Globe Award in Ireland developed a “green” computer in order to reduce, reuse and recycle computer waste, reduce CO2 emissions and fresh water use. Congratulations for your achievement!
The Award will be officially presented to MicroPro at the Austrian Embassy on June 18th, 2015.
