The state of Colorado, home to the Rocky Mountain Institute, has a decidedly green patina in the world of sustainability. Headquartered in Denver, Arrow Electronics proudly joins the ranks of environmental leaders, recently garnering the coveted “Gold Leader” status in the Colorado Environmental Leadership program.

Arrow Electronics, a Fortune 150 company, provides products and services that span the entire life cycle of electronics. Arrow’s Value Recovery business (AVR) brings the highest standards of environmental stewardship to the handling of electronics no longer needed by corporations. Putting a priority first on reuse, AVR ensures the most environmentally positive outcomes by remarketing, donating and redeploying usable equipment. Before scrupulous recycling, AVR harvests usable parts and breaks down unusable equipment to as near commodity status as possible, maintaining downstream transparency for all materials.

I’m proud to be part of AVR, knowing that the work we’re doing truly makes a difference. If you’d like to hear more about what we do, drop me a line at cbaroudi@arrow.com.

Carol Baroudi works for Arrow’s Value Recovery business, promoting sustainability awareness and action. She is the lead author of Green IT For Dummies. Her particular focus is on electronics at the IT asset disposition stage, e-waste and everything connected.
