Track your impact on CO2 emissions with each transaction

Reduce your professional carbon footprint

With each transaction, you limit waste and the manufacture of new, unnecessary electronic components. You also reduce the carbon footprint of international shipping. Hexachip wishes to encourage you to use its services as much as possible and thus measure your positive impact and that of the community on the reduction of CO2 emissions linked to the life cycle of electronic components.

Know your impact to better reduce it

Our calculation algorithm shows you the amount of CO2 emissions saved with each transaction

Your euros cancel out kg of CO2 emissions

Depending on the type of electronic component and the amount of the transaction, our algorithm calculates an estimate of the CO2 emissions avoided and displays a ratio converting the € into kg of CO2.

Strength in numbers

Follow the positive impact and the cumulative kg of CO2 avoided by the whole Hexachip community.

Feature to come

You fund impact projects with every transaction

Thanks to you, Hexachip is committed to donate 1% of its turnover to finance ocean cleaning and renewable energy development projects.

Electronic products account for nearly 5% of global CO2 emissions

The evaluation of the environmental impact of an electronic product is all the more difficult to calculate, as its value chain is complex and involves strong strategic economic and geopolitical stakes worldwide

Our awesome features
Extraction of mineral resources

All life cycle analyses show that the extraction of raw materials and their transformation into electronic components have the greatest environmental impact. To extract these exhaustible natural resources (rare earths, ores, etc...), we need machines, energy to run them, often a lot of water or auxiliary products.

Our awesome features
Manufacture of electronic components

Once extracted, these raw materials are transported to the plants, which requires transportation, fuel and infrastructure. The manufacturing stage of the electronic components in turn generates a significant amount of CO2 in the factories. Production-related emissions come in particular from the chemicals used in the extraction and processing of raw materials, as well as from the energy needed to manufacture the components, especially semiconductors.

Our awesome features
Transport of electronic components

Then comes the stage of routing electronic components and semi-finished electronic products to user companies (EMS and OEMs) in Europe. Overall, air transport is responsible for 2.8% of CO2 emissions worldwide.

Our awesome features
Use of electronic components

In turn, European EMS and OEMs use energy to operate their machines and infrastructures to manufacture or assemble finished electronic products. These electronic products will then be transported to places of assembly or distribution or even use or consumption.

Our awesome features
Storage of unused components

The causes of the storage of components at this stage are multiple (over-stocking, stop of the manufacturing of a product, evolution of an electronic board, end of life of a component, loss of a customer, etc...), but it weighs its share, as small as it is, in the CO2 emissions, linked to the energy consumption of the storage place.

Our awesome features
Life cycle of an electronic product

The steps described above are only part of the life cycle of a finished electronic product, The places of extraction, manufacturing and assembly are multiple and on different continents. The multitude of factors and the complexity of the value chain make an accurate assessment of the carbon footprint difficult.

Our mission

Resell a maximum of of new electronic components

To fight against waste and CO2 emissions generated unnecessarily.
