Maxey Moverley can help you achieve your ESG goals. Sustainability is built into our business model.
Our repair activities are not just carbon neutral, they are carbon negative, meaning every repair saves carbon being emitted. We are a real manifestation of the circular economy, re-using rather than wasting precious resources.
Each repair saves over 50kg CO₂e on average, with many saving far more. So repairing saves carbon as well as money, making it by far the most cost effective way you can reduce your environmental impact.
Carbon footprint of electronics
Electronics have a far greater carbon footprint than their size or weight would suggest. This is a function of the nature and variety of the precious metals used in their manufacture together with the massive carbon footprint of the computer chip (semi-conductor) manufacturing process. Read More

The circular economy
The circular economy is a systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. It is a model for the economy which maintains and recycles goods rather than the throw away culture of extraction of raw materials, manufacture and discard after use. Read More
The IEC 62402:2019 standard states that ‘the objective of obsolescence management is to ensure that obsolescence is managed as an integral part of all design, development, production and in-service support in order to minimize cost and detrimental impact throughout the product life cycle’.

The wasteful mind-set that has been all too common is to discard electronic devices when they fail. Each time this happens all of the embodied CO2e is thrown away and a replacement unit with an equivalently high footprint is produced. In the vast majority of cases this is not because the unit is worn out. Read More
