At CHG-MERIDIAN, we believe in end-to-end sustainability, efficient technology management with the highest level of information security, fair competition, and respectful dialog with stakeholders.


Sustainability has been at the core of our business for more than 40 years. We offer equipment leasing with subsequent refurbishment in line with the principles of the resource-efficient circular economy. Sustainability is an ongoing process for us and we are continually expanding our commitment in this area. In this context, we understand sustainability as the intersection of the three dimensions of economy, ecology and society. A holistic view of all three sustainability dimensions is essential for CHG-MERIDIAN to operate successfully in the long term.

Technology Center Groß-Gerau

Sustainability put into practice

Nowhere else is the success of CHG-MERIDIAN’s lifecycle management model more evident. Here, in the larger of the company’s two technology centers, IT assets returned after the first use phase at the customer are given a second life. Demand for these services in Gross-Gerau has increased so much that the center was expanded by 2,000 square meters last year.

CHG-MERIDIAN has set itself the target of becoming carbon-neutral across the business from 2021. To achieve this, we hope to avoid, reduce, or offset all CO₂ emissions generated in the course of our business activities. CHG-MERIDIAN considers corporate emissions to not just include the usual scope 1 and scope 2 emissions because it also feels responsible for any scope 3 emissions that it can influence.

All non-avoidable emissions are offset through selected climate change mitigation projects. We will carry on the measures introduced in recent years to reduce the CHG-MERIDIAN Group’s carbon footprint and will continue to refine them.
