Devices Are Not Dead: How Symec and SOTI Help Customers Reconsider Disregarding Their Devices
Transforming the way you recycle your redundant technology
Did you know over 40 million tonnes of electronic waste is thrown out every year? That is the equivalent of 800 laptops every second. Many of these devices are not dead – 52% of IT decision-makers say tablets and laptops are replaced according to expected lifecycles rather than when the devices stop working. In an era of conscious consumerism and green goals, how are enterprises still leading the way in creating e-waste year after year?
Read on to find out how Symec and SOTI can help with this challenge.
SOTI's Commitment to Zero Waste
SOTI’s most recent global industry report, Reduce Reuse Rethink: From Discard Mentality to Tech Sustainability, helps partners and customers understand the growing issue of e-waste within enterprises globally and how much IT Managers lean towards a discard mentality.
According to SOTI research the following are disposed of unnecessarily:
- 55% of printers
- 60% of rugged handhelds (including scanners and barcode readers)
- 64% of laptops
- 65% of tablets
- 68% of wearables
- 69% of mobile phones
How Symec are Contributing to a Zero Waste Society
Alongside the reduction of e-waste, SOTI Platinum Partner Symec helps businesses across the UK minimise post-pandemic upfront investment challenges by offering certified, refurbished devices. The devices offer high-quality mobile tools for a range of tasks without the brand-new hardware costs.
