Our Sustainable Approach
Sustainable business practices are no longer the future - they are the now. Global efforts will ensure change, but we must act now. Here's what D-Tech is doing to create a brighter future for our planet.
As an international business, we believe we must take action, implement effective policies and help our customers and libraries around the world spread awareness by making learning materials accessible for all.
Did you know?
The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in our atmosphere, as of July 2021, is the highest it has been in human history.
Last year, D-tech came together to rethink our sustainability strategy to speed-up change and create long-term value for our business, clients, and our planet.
So, what’s new in our sustainability strategy?
D-Tech has made the tough decision this year to minimize our presence at big industry events to save on costly CO2 emissions. For our most recent event, ALA Conference and Exhibition, we saved more than 3000kg in CO2 emissions by operating a smaller stand and not shipping our products over to Washington as we did in previous years.
Minimized Power Usage
Self-service is about to get a lot greener!
Our self-service products now require less power to serve your patrons and streamline your library operations. Don’t worry! The performance of our self-service products has not been compromised. Your library technology will still run at full performance.
We are committed to the sustainable production of D-Tech products whenever possible. Our products are produced using reputable parts to ensure simple and sustainable manufacturing.
Growing Our Demo Capabilities
At D-Tech, our technology is best seen in action!
To continue bringing the D-Tech experience to our customers without increasing the size of our carbon footprint, we’ve grown our virtual demo service. Our conscious effort to reduce our carbon footprint has enabled us to happily offer live video demonstrations of any product in our extensive range.
Providing Superior Sustainable Support
Superior support doesn’t have to cost the earth. Our aftercare team is dedicated to providing the highest level of service possible.
iNNOVATE, the latest self-service software from D-Tech, allows our support and development team to remotely identify and solve problems, often before our customers have noticed issues themselves. This not only gives our customers access to fast and reliable support but also eliminates any unnecessary travel.
However, when you need in-person support, our team of friendly engineers will be right there with you! We ensure that all our engineers car-share wherever possible to reduce environmental impact.
