Using technology to make a difference to the world
Myton St, Hull HU1 2PS, UK
TES and their partner, Cognition Foundry, are using technology to make a difference to the world in which we live.
From taking advantage of the infrastructure benefits of IBM LinuxOne, Power and Storage – greater virtualisation and security; less floor space, power and cooling, and CO2output; reduced networking and cabling infrastructure and simplified administration - to drive greater efficiencies in the data centre and then exploiting that technology to improve people’s lives.
Built on Blockchain, TES has created a “currency” based on plastic credits that have enabled Plastic Bank to empower the lives of millions and win an IBM Beacon Award in 2018 and a United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Award in 2019
Plastic Bank is a global initiative that brings waste plastic back into the supply chain through recycling (Social Plastic”) and rewards the people that find and collect it. The rewards aren’t just based upon the commercial value of the plastic – sponsorships are established with commerce and industry to provide them with a channel for social giving. This elevates the value of the rewards that the collectors can achieve and helps them “cash in” their collected plastic for education, healthcare, goods, and cash.
