After being cleaned and wiped of their data by BNP Paribas Group volunteers working on the 1MillionHours2Help programme, these computers will be reconditioned by or for individuals who are struggling.

What next?

By recycling this computer equipment, the two recipient charities will enable vulnerable individuals to get back on their feet through work and access to computers - an essential part of economic and social reinsertion.

Patrick de la Hamette, chairman of Digital Inclusion, was delighted with “this gift of computers – the biggest donation that Digital Inclusion has ever received. It’s a great opportunity. Given the current events in Ukraine and large number of refugees arriving in Luxembourg, this computer equipment will be more useful than ever”.

According to Isabelle Pélissié du Rausas, Head of Sales at Ecodair, “this donation supports the creation of long-term jobs for the disabled people working for us and those looking to get back into work; it will also enable us to further our commitment to narrowing the digital divide. At Ecodair, we really believe in the establishment of meaningful partnerships like this one, based on the key issues of the circular economy and getting vulnerable or disabled individuals into the workplace”.

As vital components of sustainable finance, social inclusion and the circular economy are an integral part of BGL BNP Paribas’ strategy. Béatrice Belorgey, Chair of the BGL BNP Paribas Executive Committee, said: “By giving a second life to our computers, we help make IT equipment accessible to those who need it in their daily life while limiting the environmental impact”.
