D&H Distributing has entered the second year of its “Go Green” initiative to promote environmentally friendly technologies.
The company now offers more than 6,300 green-certified products, a 50 percent increase in the distributor’s total portfolio of ecologically conservative products, up from approximately 4,000 in January 2010 when the D&H Earth Day promotion was first launched. Since that time, D&H has sold 10,133,265 eco-conservative items overall.
Green certified products are defined as using less power, incorporating renewable resources, being Energy Star- or RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)-compliant, or having some other ecologically-conservative attribute.
In addition, the distributor’s Engaged Recycling program provides opportunities for dealers, retailers, resellers, and installers to repurpose or safely discard electronic equipment. This offering was conducted in conjunction with the Engaged Recycling company, a developer of simple, safe and smart trade-in and recycling solutions.
“Our goal was to help drive the adoption of more environmentally responsible technologies, and to make the supply channel more conscious of conservative practices,” said Jeff Davis, senior vice president of sales at D&H. “We’re proud that we could play a role in the success of the widespread endeavor to promote eco-friendly technology, and that its influence has only grown over the course of the year at D&H.”
