Instead of adding to dangerous waste, APC has partnered with an internationally certified organisation (ISO 14001:2004) to ensure that many components of defunct UPS are reused and the remainder is disposed of with minimum environmental impact. APC is proud to provide this service free to Trade-UPS customers, and dispose of any brand of UPS safely.

Caring for our world

World energy consumption has risen 45% since 1980 and it is projected to be 70% higher by 2030. To limit energy cost and its impact on the environment, we must learn to adapt and manage energy consumption, costs and pollutants. Schneider Electric is committed to reducing the energy cost and CO2 emission of its customers.

Our products, solutions and services are present at every link in the energy value chain for the building, infrastructure, industry and residential market to ensure your comfort and performance, while taking into account environmental issues.
