Techies Go Green is a movement of IT and tech-oriented companies who are committed to decarbonising their businesses, making them green and verifiably sustainable.
Dublin, September 1st, 2022 – The ZeroNet today announces that it has joined Techies Go Green, a movement of IT and tech-oriented companies who are committed to decarbonising their businesses.
Established in 2012, the ZeroNet is transforming the way we think about e-Waste and our award winning technology – now live in the UK city of Brighton since 2020 – is proving that that there is a better way of managing the massive global challenge of e-Waste.
It joins the community of organisations who are aiming to become carbon-neutral by 2030 at the latest. Techies Go Green enables each member to purposefully improve their energy efficiency by collaborating and sharing practical know-how.
Started by IT distributor DataSolutions, more than 200 companies have signed up to the initiative to date.
Paul McSweeney, founder of ZeroNet creator Zerobin Group Ltd said, : “We are delighted to become part of this really inspiring movement, e-Waste is a global scourge and it is scandalous that over 57 millions tonnes of this waste stream is produced each year with less than 20% being formally recycled. We’re doing something about this problem and our extended UK pilot in Brighton – in partnership with Tech-Takeback - is showcasing a whole new and dramatic way of reducing this problem”
Michael O’Hara, Techies Go Green co-founder said: “We are delighted that the ZeroNet has joined Techies Go Green – an important initiative which aims to benefit companies, people and the planet.
“It is vital that every business takes responsibility, sets targets and reduces their environmental impact on the earth. Techies Go Green is designed to support this, share ideas and make a sustainable difference.” To learn more about or become a signatory with Techies Go Green, visit www.techiesgogreen.com.

About the ZeroNet
We created the ZeroNet - the world's first cloud based technology platform designed explicitly around the logistical requirements of the Circular Economy (CE), arguably the most important sustainability movement in the world right now and one that is firmly linked to a zero-carbon, zero-waste and resource-efficient future. Our core proposition is to transform the way in which products and materials are recovered – typically from the home – and facilitate a revolution in high value zero-waste recovery activities including reuse, refurbishment, remanufacturing, refilling as well as providing the core logistical infrastructure to enable the adoption and scale-up of circular business models.
The platform has been live in the English city of Brighton since November 2020 and available to over 100,000 homes. It has transformed that city’s e-Waste landscape facilitating unprecedented levels of reuse in both data bearing equipment (35%) and also in other forms of EEE as well. In fact, over 20% of small household appliances recovered via the ZeroNet platform are now being reused; if this were scaled throughout the UK, then this figure could reach over 100m items. This would create truly transformative benefits across the spectrum of social, environmental, economic in addition to having a very positive impact on carbon reduction.
