Beltug, the largest Belgian association of digital technology leaders, recently issued a survey in order to shed light on the practices of Belgian organizations regarding the handling of their out-of-date computers.

The survey found that only one in four Belgian corporations donates their old computers to NGOs like Close the Gap. Beltug understands the importance of improving digital knowledge across the world and wants to stimulate and encourage Belgian companies to donate their aged IT material to professional organizations like Close the Gap, who aim to bridge the digital divide.
