Facts & Figures 2023 and Outlook

Driving the age of use!

CHG-MERIDIAN continued to grow successfully in 2023!
Our latest corporate figures show that modern usage models based on the circular economy are continuing to establish themselves successfully. The age of use has begun. Now we need to shape it with our technology2use solutions and leverage its potential.

The principle of "using over ownership" plays a significant role in the transition from a linear economy to a circular economy. In this context, modern, globally scalable technology2use solutions are crucial. With usage-based models, companies not only gain access to cutting-edge technology, but also optimize their liquidity and improve their sustainability footprint.

We were able to take advantage of this upturn in the 2023 financial year, as the CHG-MERIDIAN Group once again achieved stable growth and successfully contributed to the digital and sustainable transformation of our customers with our solutions.

For us as a company, this goes hand in hand with economic, environmental and social responsibility, which we address in our sustainability strategy. In our latest Corporate & Sustainability Report 2023, you can find out how we are putting this into practice.

"A key pillar of our growth strategy is targeted internationalization. For us, this means expanding our presence in line with the needs and significant growth areas of our current 12,000 customers - particularly in the Asia-Pacific region."
Mathias Wagner, CEO of CHG-MERIDIAN

Driving the age of use

If companies rely on modern technology2use concepts, they can reduce the CO2-emissions of the IT hardware they use by more than 50 percent thanks to efficient lifecycle management.

This strength of circular usage models will receive an additional boost with the entry into force of the European CSRD reporting obligation, as the aim of the directive is to place sustainability reporting on the same level as financial reporting. As part of this regulation, companies will also have to be measured by their carbon footprint in the future.
