Over the next decade, the emphasis on sustainable IT will only continue to grow with businesses of all sizes and sectors having to adapt. But you can start reaping the benefits today.
With specialized programs and initiatives designed to simplify corporate sustainability, CSI can help you achieve your green goals, easily, affordably, and efficiently.
Listen to Emery Geosits, Executive Director of Global IT Alliance; Tom Willshaw, Sustainability Programs Lead, Compugen Systems, Inc.; and Brent Smiley, VP, ITAD Programs, Green4Good™, as they discuss the top 3 IT Sustainability Trends for 2022 and where to start your journey.
Today’s CEOs have discovered that “sustainability” and “profitability” are synonymous. Not only is sustainability good for the planet, but it’s also an essential element in a successful business strategy for attracting customers, employees, and investors.
Here are three key IT sustainability trends to watch:
Companies are looking for eco-friendly solutions around purchasing, maintaining, and upgrading IT equipment. The circular economy reimagines IT asset management by incorporating sharing economy models, product-as-a-service, product use extension, resource recovery, and more.
Circularity should start at procurement. More manufacturers are incorporating post-consumer materials and other sustainability practices into their products, so it’s easier than ever to procure equipment with a lower environmental footprint. Your company stands to benefit greatly from environmentally-preferred purchasing.
Green Data Centers are the key to reducing IT's environmental impact and your company's operating costs. Greening up your data center, either through a cloud migration, colocation, or consolidation initiative, is more than a noble cause; it's a smart business move.
65% of consumers say they want to buy from purpose-driven brands that advocate sustainability, and 73% are willing to change their consumption habits to lessen their negative impact on the environment.
The TCO of PCs goes beyond the cost of hardware. It has to cover installation, software, networking, communications, applications, maintenance, technical support, etc., which increase as a piece of equipment ages. Refreshing PCs every 3 years reduces TCO by 24% compared with hanging onto them longer.
Recycling legacy technology and giving devices a second life can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 17% per laptop. A comprehensive tech refresh strategy ensures that e-wastes are properly treated while precious metals such as lead, lithium, nickel, cadmium, and copper are removed, recycled, and reused.
“We will have a positive, rippling impact on the world around us; each and every day.”
You know going green is good for the environment, good for your brand, and good for your bottom line; but, getting to green is where most companies get stuck. CSI makes sustainability simple, bringing the principles of the Circular Economy down to a tactical level for your business.
CSI is committed to making the world better and businesses greener. Here are some of the programs we've developed to further this initiative.
Committing your technology to a second life at the time of purchase can net your business up to 20% off initial IT hardware costs and allows you to refresh your technology sooner.
You'll also earn carbon credits which send a positive brand message to your customers, partners, and current and future employees.
Support your team in selecting the right technology and lifecycle strategy that meets your goals while helping your organization make a tangible push for sustainability.
More frequent device refreshes allow for:
an improved staff experience,
lower lifecycle costs, and
fewer security risks.
