ThingsAt first in Australia to earn HP Amplify Impact 3-Star status
Wed, 21st Feb 2024

ThingsAt, the end user compute and outsource device management provider, has announced it is the first Australian Partner to achieve the HP Amplify Impact 3-Star Partner designation for 2024. Launched by HP, the Amplify Impact program is an international initiative aiming to advance sustainability, diversity, and social responsibility practices amongst partnering companies.

Ruy Franco, CEO of ThingsAt, expressed delight at the company's new recognition. "We are delighted to be the first HP partner to achieve this designation for 2024 in Australia," said Franco. "Through this program we can demonstrate our ongoing commitment to sustainability, diversity, and social responsibility, and our ability to drive positive change in the community and for our customers and employees who increasingly care about sustainable business practices."

The Amplify Impact program allows partner companies to advance and quantify their efforts towards implementing sustainable business practices. By achieving a coveted 3-star rating, ThingsAt has shown meaningful progress towards sustainable and socially responsible operations, which includes reducing environmental impact and promoting a circular economy among others.

Chris Hewlett, Director Commercial Channel at HP, commended ThingsAt on the accomplishment. "HP Amplify Impact partners understand that sustainability is not only good for the planet, but also for business. We are thrilled to see ThingsAt be recognised as the first Amplify Impact 3-star Partner for 2024—reflecting their commitment to driving a more circular and low-carbon economy and creating a more sustainable world. Congratulations to the team at ThingsAt."

A key aspect of the program that illustrates ThingsAt's dedication to sustainability is the inherent sustainability of Device as a Service (DaaS). The company manages end-of-life machines in a way that gives them a new lease of life by recycling, refurbishing, or repurposing them within organisations. Franco stated the extension of a PC's life can cut greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the carbon footprint.

Additionally, ThingsAt puts into action sustainability and social responsibility practices through volunteer efforts, aiming to support underserved communities. In March, the team is set to spend a day at the Medical Pantry, packing medical supplies for redistribution, thereby contributing positively to the reduction of waste sent to landfill each year.

Showcasing company-wide commitment to social responsibility and sustainability, Franco said, "As a company, we are deeply committed to sustainability and social responsibility, we have a long-standing relationship with HP and have consistently demonstrated a commitment to delivering innovative solutions that help our customers achieve their business goals. We look forward to many more years of collaboration and a commitment to excellence together."
