Steve Byrne

Director, Green4Good, Compugen Finance Inc.

Moores Law and seemingly endless amounts of cheap storage mean we are all constantly replacing our computers with later and greater – a trend that leaves in its wake an ever growing supply of used IT assets. Enter Compugen Finance‘s Green4Good program, which, under Steve’s direction, merges the IT, environmental and philanthropic goals of corporate Canada by running an IT asset re-use and recycling program that has, so far, diverted over 580,000 different IT assets from landfill – providing 92% with a second life, and raised 1.2 million in cash for charities. Some of those “second lives” include providing PCs much needed by lower income families and charities. Win-win!
