Giving new life to used equipment
We were the first operator in Portugal to offer reconditioned Apple smartphones with a two year guarantee, promoting reuse and reducing the production of e-waste. Find out more here.
For customers’ devices, the new generation of TV UMA boxes was designed in order to consume the minimum of materials, using 61% less plastic than the prior version. In November 2020, we launched NOS’ first environmentally friendly auto-installation kit, in which, using sustainable materials in the packaging and excluding one-use plastics, NOS offered the possibility for customers to install their own service, without the need for the time and travel of a technician.
We collect and put back onto the market used equipment from the fixed service (TV boxes, routers), thus avoiding additional consumption of raw materials and energy, and increasing the levels of circularity of company processes. In 2020, we put back more than 479,000 pieces of equipment.
