Deloitte is donating 5,000 of its laptops to UK schools, charities and families. The pledge, announced by Richard Houston, senior partner and chief executive at Deloitte North and South Europe, is in response to the growing digital skills gap and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deloitte is committing that all of the firm’s used laptops will be reconditioned and given a second lease of life. Any devices unfit for future use, will be stripped and the parts will be recycled. Deloitte is working with IT disposal experts OCM and N2S Ltd to ensure all laptops are confidentially wiped to factory settings, rebuilt and upgraded.
Schools from Belfast to Jersey will benefit as Deloitte will distribute 2,600 laptops to its 26 partner schools across the UK. Deloitte will then distribute the remaining devices to its charity and social enterprise partners, and to other good causes nominated by Deloitte’s people.
