ROMANIA, 2016-Jan-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — On 20 January, Carrefour Romania was presented with an award in the “Give IT” competition that is staged every year by Ateliers Sans Frontières. The purpose of this competition is to reward companies which decide to donate their old IT equipment so that it can be reused for educational projects and initiatives designed to help vulnerable people reintegrate into society throughout the country. This year, Carrefour has been ranked third on the list of companies which have decided to show evidence of their responsibilities and of the active roles that they play as social partners through concrete initiatives.
This year, Carrefour ranks third on the list of companies which have donated the most amount of electrical and electronic equipment waste to “Ateliers Sans Frontières”, thus helping to reduce waste and promote its re-use before it is recycled and destroyed. Most of the IT equipment donated by Carrefour Romania will be restored to its original condition and then given to schools and charities in underprivileged communities.
This equipment also creates jobs in the social reintegration workshop for underprivileged people.
