Environmental Sustainability

The Foundation of Our Business

The PureWrx business model aligns well with environmental sustainability, green business, and the circular economy, and we strongly support these values on behalf of our customers and OEM partners. PureWrx believes that environmental sustainability can be a profitable endeavor, bringing real economic gains as well as social benefit. It has been our experience that programs related to the circular economy, and  OEM Certified Pre-Owned™ in particular, offer a unique business model where participants on all sides can make money even as they embrace more altruistic goals. We believe PureWrx is unique in its impact for a greener economy in the computer networking equipment field.

In addition to its environmental focus, PureWrx is committed to running its own business responsibly, embracing diversity and community involvement for its employees and the company as a whole.

PureWrx has been endorsed by the US Chamber of Commerce Circular Economy Toolbox under the Product Takeback category.

Reman Day Texas

Circular Economy Toolbox

In 2017, PureWrx was honored to be named by the US Chamber of Commerce as one of only twenty companies in their Circular Economy Toolbox.

Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, and Mayor of Austin, Steve Adler, recognized PureWrx for its efforts as the founding sponsor of Reman Day in Texas, April 11, 2019 — on which day, PureWrx also held a successful electronics recycling event.

Remanufacturing Day

Did you know that properly remanufactured products are as good as new products and are also better for your wallet and the environment?

Remanufacturing is a comprehensive and rigorous industrial process by which a previously sold, leased, used, worn, or non-functional product or part is returned to a “like-new” or “better-than new” condition, from both a quality and performance perspective, through a controlled, reproducible, and sustainable process.

In addition to supporting well over 180,000 full-time U.S. jobs. the industry produces more than $45 billion of remanufactured goods per year. Remanufacturing saves, on average, 85% of energy use, 86% of water use, and 85% of material use compared to new goods.

In pursuing this, PureWrx has successfully petitioned The City of Austin to declare April 11th as Reman Day. Our event and others like it around the globe are a way to spread the word about the benefits of remanufacturing, encourage support for the industry, and appreciate those who play an important role in its success.

Reman Day is an annual national event executed at the local level supported by remanufacturers as they host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses, plant tours and presentations designed to showcase the economic and environmental benefits of remanufacturing.

In celebration of Reman Day, PureWrx will host an event to promote the value of remanufacturing and draw attention to this critical part of the US economy. For more information on Reman Day, visit http://www.remanday.org/.

OEM-CPO = Environmental Sustainability

Last year we saved over 40 tons of electronic waste from entering global landfills, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation officially recognized the PureWrx OEM-CPO Platform as a major contributor to the Circular Economy.

Buying OEM-CPO from PureWrx minimizes incremental manufacturing, saving raw materials and carbon emissions. Our OEM-CPO platform acts as a reverse cycle —accelerating circular economy initiatives, and filling the sustainability “market gap” for customers.
