Sustainability continues to be a popular topic in the business world, and many companies strive to become more environmentally aware. As a value-added IT asset disposition (vITAD) service offering, ESG reporting helps enterprises reduce their carbon footprint by providing achievable goals and accountability for energy usage.
Technology continues to evolve, and e-waste is a significant issue. Electronic waste management is more critical than ever to protect the environment. When IT assets are not disposed of properly they tend to pile up in closets or be thrown out with municipal waste, which eventually leads to them being sent to landfills.
The business world has seen many changes during the last decade, many of which have altered business strategies and traditional industry norms. For example, the pandemic created a heavy dependence on digital communications and a great need for remote support, creating a new set of standards for business industries, including IT asset disposition.
As the digital landscape has evolved, clients’ needs have become more sophisticated. As a result, the ITAD industry is evolving to include a new list of criteria and expectations to meet these needs. As a vITAD service, ESG represents an enterprise’s environmental, social, and governance policies and provides transparency and accountability within the workplace.
Environmental standards examine what strategies are in place for potential environmental risks and how a company plans to manage or mitigate such risks. ESG environmental standards also hold businesses accountable and create motivation to achieve sustainability goals. ESG reporting is now something many companies look for before partnering with others to ensure their own environmental goal will not be negatively affected by the partnership.
Environmental goals are essential steps to preserving natural resources and protecting the environment from pollution. E-waste makes up 70 percent of the world’s toxic waste and has \caused numerous chemical fires. Improper IT asset disposition can also cause health issues for those who live near landfills and are negatively impacted by air and water pollution.
ITAD enterprises like HOBI prioritize environmental safety through every step of the disposition process by ensuring that e-waste is recycled instead of sent to landfills. HOBI’s R2v3, RIOS, and ISO 14001 certifications ensure all equipment is processed under full legislative compliance.
