Sustainable Synergy: IT Repurposing for The Lost Food Project by Rentwise and Arvato Systems

[Kuala Lumpur, 18th Dec 2023] – In a landmark collaboration, Rentwise, a leading remanufacturer of IT equipment, and Arvato Systems, a global IT services company, unite to support The Lost Food Project. This partnership marks a significant stride in using repurposed technology to fuel social change, tackling food waste and hunger.

In a notable effort
blending corporate responsibility with technological innovation, Rentwise and
Arvato Systems have embarked on a mission to empower The Lost Food Project, a
non-profit organization dedicated to fighting food waste and hunger. This
synergy has led to the donation of over RM21,000 worth of remanufactured
laptops and desktop computers. These devices, rejuvenated to contemporary
standards, are set to revolutionize the operational capabilities of the NGO,
enhancing their efficiency in redistributing surplus food to the needy.
The Lost Food Project, known for its dedication to sustainability and community
support, stands to gain immensely from this strategic alliance. The initiative
provides the NGO with advanced tools in connectivity and communication,
courtesy of Arvato Systems’ retired laptops, which have been expertly remanufactured
by Rentwise. This technological uplift is crucial in their ongoing battle
against food scarcity and waste.
“We are excited to join forces with Arvato Systems in this meaningful
venture to bolster The Lost Food Project,” expressed Lanz, Commercial Director
at Rentwise. “Our contribution of remanufactured business computers is a step
towards enhancing the NGO’s operational effectiveness, aiding them in making a
more substantial impact in their fight against hunger and food wastage in
Malaysia.”
This collaborative effort underscores the commitment of Rentwise and Arvato
Systems to sustainable business practices and social responsibility. By
repurposing and donating IT equipment, the partnership not only sequesters an
estimated 10 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere but also demonstrates the
influential role of technology in societal betterment.
The gesture is a shining example of how collaborative efforts between
corporations and non-profit organizations can instigate significant social
change, addressing key community challenges. Rentwise and Arvato Systems
continue to be dedicated to building partnerships that yield lasting, positive
effects on society.
