We are AfB social & green IT

AfB is Europe's largest non-profit IT company, specialized in acquiring used business IT, certified data erasure, refurbishment and remarketing. Devices that are no longer marketable are dismantled and professionally recycled. This preserves the environment and saves valuable natural resources. The name AfB is an abbreviation of the German "Arbeit für Menschen mit Behinderung" (work for people with disabilities). All process steps are barrier-free, because at AfB people with and without disabilities work hand in hand.


Our vision and mission

Our values

We live our values. Every company that commissions AfB contributes to more circular economy and resource conservation. Every purchase at AfB, promotes inclusion. Our values are our basic principles for working together and delivering professional IT services. 

Four values are fundamental to our sustained success:

  • Offering Chances
  • Being Ambitious
  • Acting Respectfully
  • Empowering Others

We all share these values and that is why we work at AfB. The letters of these four values form the word CARE - because we care about our our company, our employees and our shared ambitions.

Offering Chances

We work together to offer opportunities - to employees, partners and clients. We make responsible choices. We want to seize our opportunities. We want to tackle them with commitment. We want to be bold and learn from our mistakes.

Being Ambitious

Our ambition arises from our vision - We are demanding towards ourselves, our service, our quality and our customer orientation.

Acting Respectfully

We learn to understand each other's perspective and act responsibly when dealing with the company's resources.

Empowering Others

A company is only as good as its employees. Everyone should be empowered to fulfil their role and job to the best of their ability. We experience progress through active and conscious action.
Be courageous, act committed!
