How donating laptops boosts CSR and long-term profits

By: Alex (freelance writer)

CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into company’s business models. The purpose of CSR is to self-regulate social responsibility and active compliance with the law, norms, and ethical guidelines. 

It is something necessary to keep businesses, intent on turning over massive profits, in line with moral standards. By appealing to consumers, stakeholders, and the media, the corporation will conduct better, long-term business with the public.

A new initiative of redistributing old but still working laptops with open source software and application to the homeless launching in London will boost corporation’s CSR tremendously. Created and monitored by SocialBox.Biz, their “Laptops for Homeless Initiative” will permit corporations to recycle all redundant IT components, corporate computers, servers, routers, laptops, etc to the members of society who need it most.

The entire act of donating and reusing will help Corporations who pair with SocialBox.Biz improve their public, environmental, and philanthropic standing immensely.

And, it costs corporations often nothing to establish this partnership. SocialBox.Biz is ready to take all excess IT elements and re-home some of them to struggling people. A mutually beneficial alliance, corporations CSR will be through the roof !

    The, Laptops for the Homeless Initiative is a perfect example of how businesses can benefit from being socially responsible. The companies who participate, and recycle their equipment in this manner get great PR and feel good about their contribution. The recipients – the homeless or disadvantaged – receive much needed access to technology which might help them improve their situation. I love programs like this where everyone wins. Thanks for sponsoring this event, and hopefully inspiring many people to jump on the bandwagon and follow your socially and environmentally friendly lead.

    I’ve never before considered what kind of impact that donating this equipment to underprivileged people could have. So much of the world today is geared toward technology, and the sad part is that there are people who just don’t have access to it and therefore are missing out on so much. So even when a computer, laptop, etc. seems obsolete to us, there are most definitely people out there who can greatly benefit from it. I guess the saying that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” is absolutely true!

    Computer access for the homeless is so, so important. In some cases it can literally be the difference-maker in their lives. Internet access is the gateway to so much, and I think it’s a tool that everyone – homeless included – should have some sort of access to. I think it’s wonderful that what could sit in a landfill somewhere is instead being used to better someone’s life and give them opportunities that they may not otherwise have.

    I’m also greatly in favor of keeping businesses in line with moral standards! It’s really a win-win situation for everyone involved.

    This a win-win situation! I’m in the process of launching two organic bakeries in Chelsea and I definitely need to do this when I’ll change my business laptops. All my older laptops ended up being reused by my nephews so I didn’t have any need for a recycle solution but this is just perfect. If I can give my business a boost and help people/have an environmental friendly approach in the process then this is the kind of service that I want to use and promote.
