For this fifth episode, discover Pierre-Emmanuel Saint-Esprit, Co-Founder of ZACK. The company’s mission is to fight against waste by giving electronic devices a second life.


Created in 2016 by two fierce circular economy activists, ZACK is now the French leader in the management of second-hand electronic products. ZACK is 800 tons of electronic products saved from the landfill since its creation and 30 direct and indirect jobs created in our territory.

The project was born during his studies at Berkeley, which he joined following his career at ESSEC. After a work-study program in a consulting firm, and with the desire to have a job that has meaning, he embarked on the entrepreneurial adventure in May 2016, having just graduated.

He explains to us that it is possible to consume differently thanks to the circular economy, which tends to use as little as possible of newly extracted resources, reducing the environmental footprint and the impact on natural resources. He insists on the urgent need for it to become the majority mode of consumption today.


Pierre-Emmanuel introduces us to how ZACK works, which of course supports individuals in the reuse of their electronic products, but also companies in their transition to the circular economy: Zack provides solutions to reduce their environmental footprint, by taking back their equipment. IT, or by offering a CSR report.
