Our Planet First

We want to play our part in building a more sustainable mobile industry, which is responsible for an estimated 1% of all CO2e emissions globally, releasing 580 million tonnes of CO2e annually.

Keeping technology alive for longer is vital as approximately 85% of a mobile phone’s CO2e emissions come from its manufacture, not its subsequent use. Therefore, extending the life of devices – rather than replacing them – has huge environmental benefits.

As well as reducing CO2e emissions, we are also offsetting.* Through our partnership with an organisation called Ecologi, we plant a tree for every device we repair. To date, we have planted more than 26,000 trees and have offset more than 160 tonnes of CO2e, and those figures are growing all the time.

We're doing our best to reduce emissions through business activities and retrofitting our facilities, but unavoidable emissions still remain. We're partnering with Ecologi to assist with offsetting these unavoidable emissions, planting a tree for every device we repair.

TMT First has set a goal of being carbon neutral by 2032 and we are actively working towards achieving that through a whole raft of measurable objective-based actions.

We have an Environmental and Sustainability Officer who oversees all we do to try and achieve carbon neutrality and zero waste, including:

Together we repair and refurbish

Together we recycle and repurpose

Together we resell and redistribute

Together we replant and reforest

We put our planet first in everything we do.

You’ve already helped us plant 27511 trees, offsetting more than 80 tonnes of CO2.

Partnering with Ecologi

Ecologi

We partner with Ecologi who provide simple, impactful ways to collectively reverse climate change. They work with businesses like us to fund climate projects and help us compensate for our carbon footprint.

We’re proud to join 80+ pledgers as part of the Million Tree Pledge collective. We are going to be planting a million trees over the next nine years and we can’t do that without your help.

For every one of you that spends £5 over £150 for a repair, we will plant 40 trees. You will be able to track how you’ve contributed, through a personalised portal that breaks down the number of trees/sub forests you’ve helped fund. It also calculates the estimated CO2e offset.
