IGEL Sustainability

IGEL’s vision is to transform the way the world works, creating better outcomes for people, organizations and our planet.

IGEL helps organizations reduce their carbon footprint and slash energy consumption by reusing hardware and optimizing IT resources.

IGEL OS is the managed endpoint operating system for secure access to any digital workspace from anywhere for productive workplace experiences today and into the future.

The facts

End User Computing generates 1% of global GHG annual emissions through the manufacturing of 460 million devices and the associated energy consumed by 4.2 billion users.

IT shouldn’t cost the earth, sustainable End User Computing means repurposing, not replacing. Repurposing existing devices rather than purchasing new computers reduces scope 3 supply chain carbon footprint by 60%. Remote working solutions enabled by thin client computers reduce scope 3 employee commuting emissions by 40% on average and energy efficiency, delivered by the IGEL OS, is improved by between 22-49% depending on the solution and approach.

In fact, a UK financial services customer with 3,150 staff using IGEL OS on existing devices rather than buying new will reduce emissions by over 256,000 kg CO2e , this is equivalent to cutting car travel by 1.5 million km or having an extra 307 acres of mature woodland  removing pollution.

Optimize IT Resources

IGEL OS powered endpoint devices reduce CO2 emissions and save energy costs and budget.

Work from anywhere
with IGEL OS

Flexible work models reduce commuting emissions and office energy consumption, while increasing flexibility for employees.


Let your people use their endpoint devices of choice wherever they wish, by supporting flexible and energy-saving work styles.

Extend the lifespan of devices

Repurposing hardware with IGEL OS to connect to the cloud reduces the number of devices sent to landfill, manufacturing energy consumption, and the mining of natural resources and mineral elements used for chips and boards.

IGEL Earth Day

Every day is earth day, but each year on April 22nd the world comes together to collectively contemplate how we can leave the planet in better shape for future generations. Tech can do its part as well to help care for this wonderful planet that sustains us so well.

Optimize End User Computing

IGEL OS and cloud technologies enable users to work on smaller, low energy devices such as laptops, thin clients or Raspberry PI endpoints, supporting BYOD strategies. This reduces the need for power-hungry desktops.

Adopt a hybrid cloud strategy

IGEL OS accelerates access to any cloud-delivered digital workspace. Using public cloud services to move workloads to the cloud can offload the environmental impact of maintaining power hungry enterprise data centers.
