Lidl donates proceeds from old IT equipment to Closing the Loop Foundation

Huizen, 18 December 2023 – Lidl is committed to sustainability and corporate social responsibility. This commitment extends to IT equipment.

Last year, Lidl had its surplus IT equipment safely and responsibly removed by ITdonations. After data deletion, the equipment was given a second life wherever possible. Lidl donated the proceeds of the equipment, valued at € 46,569, to Closing the Loop (CTL Foundation), a charity chosen by Lidl employees.

Reducing the impact of e-waste on the environment
René Bout, Lidl project manager, said: “We are also doing our part for sustainability from an IT perspective. Our old equipment is given a second life, which saves a significant amount of CO₂. At the same time, we are helping a good cause, in this case CTL Foundation, to reduce the impact of e-waste on the environment.”

Joost de Kluyver of CTL Foundation said: “With Lidl’s donation to our foundation, we can work on the broader and more impactful application of One for One, on increasing the positive impact in developing countries, and on raising awareness in the sector that waste reduction can be concrete, inclusive, and positive.”

ITdonations is part of Circular IT group.
