We are reducing the carbon footprints of organisations every day through a refurbishment process, extending the life of hundreds of computers we receive daily. Every computer Camara reuses gives 21 children digital literacy.
When reusing computers, 70% of the energy that a typical desktop will use during its lifetime is consumed when it is manufactured – equivalent to 300 kgs of CO2 for a laptop and 300 kgs for a flat screen monitor.
So it makes more environmental sense to extend the life of company’s laptops, desktops and flat screen monitors by donating them to Camara.
Camara Education has shipped 75,000 computers since its inception in 2005. That is equivalent to the deferral of the release of 22,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions for the computers and a further 21,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions (based on 70,000 monitors) – so 44,000 tonnes in total.
Since 2005, Camara has raised and generated €20m, trained 20,000 teachers across 3,750 eLearning Centres, and installed 75,000 computers, enabling 1,400,000 children to become digitally literate and attain better grades.
