MANAGE YOUR POWER USAGE
By charging your devices for around two hours a day and then setting timers so the power is turned off you can save around £2k per year on electricity bills through not allowing devices to trickle charge. At eduthing we can set this up for you for.
MOVING TO CLOUD SERVICES
Both major education Cloud providers – Microsoft and Google – run their data centres on green renewable energy and have made pledges to be carbon neutral by 2025. This means that using Cloud Services will not add CO2 to the atmosphere.
Cloud service costs are inclusive of power charges so there are no hidden costs apart from what you pay on the subscription charge.
Cloud services optimise the use of hardware in datacentres making the most efficient use of resources.
At eduthing we can help you map your journey to the Cloud so that your IT solution is as cost effective as possible and so that you reduce your carbon footprint as much as possible.
NOT ALL USER DEVICES ARE MADE EQUAL
Some us more power, some create more CO2 in the manufacturing process and some create more CO2 during their lifetime use. At eduthing we can help you understand the most cost effective approach to device procurement and management.
FRONT OF CLASSROOM DISPLAYS
Front of classroom displays are not all created equal. We work with the most efficient suppliers and those that take their sustainability pledges very seriously. We can help you make sure you have the best options for sustainability as part of you solution.
Understanding the supply chain – CO2 emissions come from the manufacturing, transportation, usage and then disposal of IT assets. At eduthing we have assembled a set of partners in our supply chain that are dedicated to ensuring the lowest possible CO2 footprint and the highest levels of sustainability for their products and solutions.
DISPOSAL OF ASSETS
We are of course dedicated to making sure that any electronic waste is disposed of ethically, but we also work with partners who will re-purpose old equipment and then put it back into use wherever possible. Re-purposing a device or the components from a device is by far the most sustainable approach to utilising equipment that is no longer fit for purpose in the classroom.
