Danby Appliances is taking a bold step towards environmental responsibility by refurbishing products and actively reducing the impact of electronic waste on our planet. At Danby, we believe in not just doing business, but doing the right thing.
Product Repurposing and Recycling:
Danby Appliances contributes strongly to the circular economy. Rather than discarding returned or faulty products, the company has established refurbishment and repurposing centers across North America, products are carefully assessed and refurbished to extend their lifecycle. This not only prevents items from ending up in landfills but also significantly reduces the need for raw materials and energy associated with new production. Danby Appliances is actively partnering with local communities, non-profit organizations, and recycling centers to create a circular economy model. We are proud to support job creation and environmental initiatives in the regions where we operate.
Gas Emissions Mitigation:
Danby understands that greenhouse gas emissions are a critical concern in today’s world. To combat this, the company has implemented measures to minimize gas emissions from its products. Danby is doing the right thing by reducing its carbon footprint, contributing to a healthier planet for all. An example of this is that they only partner with environmentally conscious scrap vendors who recover refrigerant instead of sending it into the environment.
Zero Landfill Policy:
In line with its commitment to sustainability, Danby has adopted a “landfill as last resort” policy. In the last year alone Danby has recovered over 70,000 units. This policy ensures that any returned defective products and byproducts don’t end up in landfills unless absolutely necessary. Instead, the company channels these materials into recycling, repurposing, or responsible disposal methods, thereby drastically reducing its ecological impact.
Danby Appliances is empowering consumers by offering refurbished products at competitive prices. This not only makes quality products more accessible but also encourages conscious consumption. In the last year over 50,000 refurbished units have been sold across North America.
Transparency and Accountability:
We are committed to being transparent about our refurbishment process and regularly share our sustainability achievements with the public, including metrics on electronic waste diverted from landfills and reductions in our carbon footprint.
Danby believes in giving back to the communities where we operate. Jim Estill, Owner and CEO of Danby appliances received the “Order of Canada”- the highest honor given to a civilian for his philanthropic work and has brought this mindset to his company. Danby actively engages in philanthropic endeavors, support local initiatives, and encourages employees to volunteer their time and skills to make a positive difference.
Our story is one of integrity, empathy, and the pursuit of Doing The Right Thing. We would love the opportunity to discuss how Danby Appliance’s core value drives our actions and shape our impact.
