Sustainability has been at the core of CHG-MERIDIAN’s business for more than 40 years. The company offers equipment leasing with subsequent refurbishment in line with the principles of the resource-efficient circular economy. Sustainability is an ongoing process for CHG-MERIDIAN, and it is continually expanding its commitment in this area. In this context, company leadership understands sustainability as the intersection of the three dimensions of economy, ecology and society. A holistic view of all three sustainability dimensions is essential for CHG-MERIDIAN to operate successfully in the long term.
With this in mind, the company launched its first ever green financing solution, carbonZER0. This new option has been introduced in 27 countries – and will enable companies to make carbon-neutral IT investments by offsetting the carbon emissions that are generated during the production, transportation, use, and end-of-lease phase of IT assets. CHG-MERIDIAN is thus enabling its customers to make a core aspect of their IT infrastructure more sustainable.
To promote sustainability throughout the company and embed it effectively, CHG-MERIDIAN developed a sustainability strategy and created a sustainability governance structure in 2020 that includes the role of group sustainability officer (GSO). The sustainability strategy is based on the goals of the corporate strategy and contains key company-specific action areas: Strategy and Governance, Circular Economy and Climate Protection, Great Work and Shared Values, and Community Engagement.
