IT Assets’ Place in Your Sustainability Plans

From entrepreneurial startups to the Fortune 100, a rural elementary school or a global non-profit, electronics play a key role in day-to-day operations for nearly all organizations. While most use IT assets — desktops, laptops, tablets, smart phones, printers, copiers, servers and routers — few businesses incorporate these electronics into their sustainability plans. If your organization’s IT Assets aren’t part of your sustainability plan, you are missing out on powerful and achievable opportunities. You can read more about this story here:


You’re absolutely right, incorporating IT into sustainability plans is a huge missed opportunity for many organizations. I see it all the time – businesses constantly chasing the latest tech, mountains of e-waste piling up, and barely a whisper of green alternatives. It’s like they’re missing the eco-friendly elephant in the server room!

But there’s good news! Simple steps like prioritizing repairs over upgrades , choosing energy-efficient tech, and responsibly recycling or donating outdated equipment can make a world of difference. We’re not talking about sacrifices or compromises, just smart choices that benefit the planet and the bottom line.

Think about it – by extending the lifespan of our IT assets, we reduce waste, conserve resources, and even save money. It’s a win-win-win situation. I’m curious to hear what others in the community are doing to make their IT operations more sustainable.
