The average business is projected to spend 22% more on technology infrastructure, staff, systems, and upgrades this year. Part of that expense will be replacing old equipment with new systems. Unfortunately, discarding old electronic equipment that becomes part of a landfill is a growing e-waste problem.
The Problem with E-Waste
Global e-waste reached 54 million metric tons in 2019, according to the United Nations, growing by 21% between 2014 and 2019, a pace that leads to e-waste doubling in 16 years. Fortunately, IT providers like Inteleca have taken note and offer sustainable options for clients to repurpose, reuse, recycle, re-sell or dispose of older equipment in an eco-conscious way.
How IT Partners Can Provide Solutions
That’s one of the reasons Inteleca, a global provider of IT Business Solutions, rebranded our tagline to, “Make the Most of IT.” We want companies to know technology shouldn’t be a one-time investment. These assets can be leveraged to deliver many more benefits over time with the right IT partner.
Inteleca helps strategically source and install businesses enterprise systems using both legacy and new equipment, providing seamless integration with a variety of products and services, including IT installation, hardware, security, and more.
