George M Cook

Honorary Chief Executive, Computers 4 Charity

About this speaker

George established Computers 4 Charity on behalf of Microsoft (see the personal video from Bill Gates) and works in partnership with Business in the Community (BITC). Our donors are government departments, multinationals, education bodies and organisations of all kinds. We don’t just datawipe … we upgrade older devices to use modern software and donate free-of-charge for re-use over ½ that we receive to other charities, recycle as few as possible and waste none. Donations reduce CO2 emissions: we dismantle, refurbish, rebuild and upgrade devices, doubling their working lives from 5 to 10 years. Our beneficiaries are: • Young carers • Homeless youth • Hospice patients • Charity volunteers • Unemployed veterans • Bereaved Forces children • UK charities supporting schools in Africa
