As a value-added ITAD service, ESG reporting provides accountability and transparency for companies seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and achieve social requirements in the workplace. Social ESG criteria focus on issues such as human capital, labor regulations, diversity, DEI, safety, human rights, and community involvement. Partnering with a woman-owned ITAD enterprise can help companies achieve diversity spending, social ESG goals, and a number of other enterprise benefits.
Partnering with a WBE-certified ITAD provider can benefit an enterprise in several ways. Using a minority-owned business as a service supplier creates new opportunities for revenue growth and opens the door to many federal and state tax incentives. Tax breaks are provided to enterprises that use women-owned businesses as suppliers. Additionally, the federal government offers a second tax incentive that may reduce certain liabilities for companies using diverse suppliers who provide services to a state or federal-grant-funded project. Certain states also offer tax incentives to businesses that contract with women-owned goods and services suppliers.
A WBE certification enables other companies to identify diverse suppliers and enhance their ESG goals while helping promote women-owned businesses to major corporations looking to do business with a woman-owned company.
