PreZero partners with DXC Technology to reinvent Waste Recycling in Spain
DXC Technology, a Fortune 500 global technology services provider, has been awarded a four-year contract by PreZero Group, a leading Spanish environmental services provider, which is part of Schwarz Group, Europe’s largest retailer.
DXC will help PreZero to transform its IT systems, enabling it to develop innovative approaches to waste recycling for over 15 million citizens across Spain and Portugal.
DXC will work with PreZero to build a modern digital platform to accelerate the development of innovative and sustainable waste recycling methods, helping them with their mission to protect the environment and create a sustainable value chain using an efficient, digitized, circular economy recycling system.
PreZero is the waste and recycling management expert for the Schwarz Group, the company behind Lidl, one of Europe’s leading supermarket groups. Using a variety of environmental innovations, PreZero has a successful track record in converting waste into new products, directly contributing to the circular economy. For example, PreZero is one of the pioneers in using the larvae of black soldier flies to process food waste into high-protein animal feed. Elsewhere, PreZero is using AI-powered waste sorting technology and developing sustainable packaging solutions using plant fibers as an alternative to wood pulp in paper and cardboard packaging.
DXC will help PreZero to modernize and reconfigure the legacy IT estate that it inherited through the acquisition of Ferrovial’s environmental business in Spain and Portugal. By moving its operations to the cloud and introducing the latest automation and security technologies, PreZero will benefit from improved business continuity, decreased risk and increased flexibility to support its growth. DXC will also support the PreZero’s 17,000 employees with modern workplace services, helping to improve workforce productivity and collaboration.
“With DXC’s decades of IT industry expertise, it is a trusted partner for us in our journey to the cloud and next chapter of growth,” said Francisco Gimeno, Director of Digital Transformation at PreZero Spain. “We are counting on them to implement, advance and automate our IT estate and enable us to drive innovation in the waste management industry.”
“We are delighted to be selected as the trusted technology partner for PreZero Spain and are excited to support their goal of building a more sustainable future,” said Alfonso García Muriel, Business Director of DXC Technology Spain. “With this new agreement, we will build on our ten-year cooperation with PreZero Spain’s predecessor, Ferrovial Services (Cespa). We have a deep understanding of the complexities of merging the IT infrastructures of two companies and we will work closely with PreZero to build a new, modern IT foundation that will support their ambitious business and environmental goals.”
