Introducing TechAdvance™

Get paid today for your newly acquired technology in exchange for delivering it to us at a fixed time in the future. You can even receive carbon credits to help support your sustainability efforts.

Get Savings And Promote Sustainability
With Your New Technology Purchases

The TechAdvance™ program allows organizations to receive up to 20% additional discount and registered carbon credits on new equipment purchases.

The program is available for workplace devices including desktops, notebooks, smartphones, tablets, monitors, servers, network gear, and printer hardware.

How It Works

Let Us Know Your Device Needs

When acquiring new technology, reach out to CO2Neutral and let us know the number and types of devices you are looking to purchase, and how long you would like to use them for – refresh cycle of 1 – 5 years.

Receive Cost Reduction Option

CO2Neutral will provide a TechAdvance™ upfront discount value to show you how much you can save based on the value those devices will have when returned to us in the future. We will also provide the number of carbon credits you will receive by enrolling your new devices into the program.

Access Discounted Technology Today

Upon approval of the TechAdvance™ option, a formal agreement is signed between CO2Neutral and your company. Once signed, you can begin placing equipment orders and receive the future resale value today to reduce the purchase cost of your newly acquired technology.

Return Devices for Secure Processing

At the agreed upon return date, CO2Neutral will receive the technology back and securely sanitize the devices of any data. Devices will be refurbished to ensure they receive a second life at the end of the refresh cycle.

Why CO2Neutral

Receive Additional Up-Front Cost Reduction

Access up to 20% discount on new equipment purchases. The money you save can be put towards more devices and other services or peripherals that you need.

Improve Your Technology Experience

Don’t let old technology slow your team down or decrease your organization’s productivity. New devices provide better security and efficiency to make sure your company is performing at its best.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Get closer to your carbon reduction targets by offsetting your corporate carbon footprint with verified carbon credits earned through the program.

Free Up Capital For Other Projects

Leverage IT strategy to support business health and cash flow

Leverage A Full Lifecycle Solution That Prioritizes Security

The program will support your IT management needs from acquisition to end-of-first-life, adhering to stringent standards of data destruction that is compliant to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-88 data wiping protocol.

Be Part Of The Circular Eeconomy

All devices will receive a second life at the end of the refresh cycle through a reuse channel ensuring a zero-landfill solution and low environmental impact.

TechAdvance is ready to integrate with your company’s IT strategy

TechAdvance™ Qualifies As A CapEx Purchase

  • Businesses retain title/ownership of their devices throughout the lifecycle.
  • Businesses just sign a one-time agreement to return the devices to CO2Neutral at the predetermined date in the future.

Secure Processing For Returning Devices

  • Devices will be processed in an ISO-certified facility (9001:2015)
  • Processing includes detailed unit counts, serial numbers and asset tags scanned and stored, and 24/7 video and guard surveillance
  • All returned units will be de-branded and wiped to a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-88 compliant data sanitization protocol

What Are Carbon Credits?

A carbon credit represents a measurement of reduced carbon emissions achieved by one party, which can be used to compensate (offset) the emissions of another party.

By reselling refurbished technology that would otherwise be recycled or sent to a landfill, the need for manufacturing new technology (a process that creates carbon emissions) is eliminated, therefore generating a carbon credit.

Companies such as HSBC, Nike, and the Bank of Montreal are already leveraging carbon credits to reduce their carbon footprints. But unlike costly approaches to carbon offsetting, which involve buying carbon offsets from third parties, the CO2Neutral™ program enables you to receive carbon credits by leveraging a circular economy model that reduces the environmental impact of technology management.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I participate in the program if I intend to keep my devices for more than 5 years?

The maximum term for the program is 5 years with the most aggressive residual values occurring in a 2 or 3 year refresh cycle.

Why does carbon neutrality matter to me?

Environmental and climate action is becoming increasingly important to consumers, the workforce and other stakeholders. Reducing carbon emissions is a public interest. Organizations need to take action to reduce their carbon footprint. For emissions that cannot be reduced, carbon offsetting is a valid way to meet targets as long as the carbon offsets or credits have been properly vetted and verified to be real reductions/removals.

How do credits get generated through the CO2Neutral™ program?

By collecting, refurbishing and reselling end-of-first-life technology, the CO2Neutral™ program reduces the need for new technology. Thus, the carbon dioxide emissions (CO2e) associated with the production and manufacturing of new technology (e.g., extracting of raw materials, manufacturing, shipping, etc.) are never incurred. The entire refurbishment and resale process is documented and verified, after which carbon credits are generated and registered with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).

What if I want to hold on to the devices after the agreed return date?

At the end of the term, you have the following options :
– return the equipment , purchase it at the then fair market value or continue to use it for a predetermined rental amount per month.

How does the TechAdvance™ program determine tomorrow’s trade-in value?

CO2Neutral developed a process that uses market data and gathers intel to determine what value devices will have on the return date. Our organization represents longtime industry experts who are able to leverage the future value IT market trends.

Can I participate in the program if I intend to keep my devices for more than 5 years?

We can provide a discounted quote for 6-year old devices, but typically the upfront discount is maximized on a 2-5 year term.
