Environment + Sustainability Everything in the green area!
First Choice 4 Second Life is a matter of great personal importance to us! With our recovery program, we aim to generate the greatest possible number of devices that can be used again in a second life. That is how we can promote sustainability, save and reuse raw materials, prevent devices from ending up in illegal landfill, and much more besides. We are a "circular company" and we stand for all that is good about sustainability and product life extension!
That's what we call win-win.
Sustainability that pays!
The joint TEQCYCLE and Deutsche Telekom take-back system has been awarded the Blauer Engel environmental seal of approval in 2019. We are the first returns system for digital mobile devices to receive this accolade. But what's it about? Very old devices generally don't have a resale value anymore, but they still contain raw materials such as gold, cobalt, palladium, etc. that can be recycled! We want to work sustainably and reuse valuable resources, and one of the ways we do so is with our Used Mobile Phone Collection Center! We gather these devices in Europe-wide campaigns, delete their data absolute reliably, have them disassembled and donate the proceeds to charity. We also collaborate with highly reputed research institutions that occupy themselves intensively with recycling and recovery, to underpin our activities in this field. Where we are is the forefront!
Teqcycle is our exclusive partner for trade-in concepts for mobile digital devices. The smooth take-back process is a huge added value for our customers, and hence a valuable addition to the service portfolio of Deutsche Telekom.
