To mark Global Recycling Day on Friday, 18th March, Wisetek is calling on Irish companies to ethically manage the recycling of their waste and ensure that they have sustainable practices in place.
In September 2021, Wisetek launched a new e-commerce business, Wisetek Store that enables consumers to shop online for high quality refurbished IT equipment and a range of other hardware options.
Refurbished devices are 100% more sustainable than buying a brand-new device. Wisetek Store also plants one tree for every order, helping to significantly reduce the CO2 emissions that contribute to climate change.
The company has a dedicated environmental committee and Corporate Sustainable Initiatives programme in place, with the objective of continually improving the internal environmental policies and processes at its facilities across Ireland, the UK, the USA, the Middle East and Thailand.
Global Recycling Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on March 18th to demonstrate support for environmental protection.
This global awareness day was established in 2018 to recognise and celebrate the importance of recycling in conserving our precious natural resources and ensuring the planet’s long-term sustainability. It is a day for the entire world to unite and prioritise the planet.
Sean Sheehan, CEO of Wisetek, said: “Recycling is a key element of sustainability, and it is a core practice for Wisetek, both internally and in the work we do on behalf of customers.
“Wisetek has robust recycling systems in place at its facilities around the world, and also practices the recycling of e-waste materials every day in our work, which is one of the most rapidly growing waste categories.
“Wisetek operates under the ethos of responsible, long-term data destruction on behalf of customers. I would like to encourage all of our employees to continue to adhere to ethical and sustainable practices in this area.”
