Sustainable Technology Solutions for Your CSR Plan

vernon sustainable technology

What sustainable practices has your organization incorporated into your Corporate Social Responsibility plan? A great place to start is by redeploying your old IT assets. Throughout the pandemic, employees many shifted to remote environments, offices were left empty, and IT devices sat to collect dust. But did you know that you can get money back from your existing equipment?

On top of the economic value that you will receive from redeploying your assets, it will also help to better our planet. You can make the most of your CSR plan by refreshing your office IT equipment, supporting your returning workforce with device upgrades or creating a positive plan of action if you are planning or downsize or close an office.

What is a Corporate Social Responsibility plan?

Unsure of what a CSR plan entails? We’ve got you covered!

A Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) plan is “a self-regulating business model that helps a company be socially accountable to itself, its stakeholders, and the public. By practicing corporate social responsibility, companies can be conscious of the kind of impact they are having on all aspects of society, including economic, social, and environmental,” (Investopedia, 2022).

Engaging in a CSR plan means an organization is carrying out ways to promote positive social, environmental, and sustainable practices instead of contributing negatively to them.

Examples of Sustainable CSR Practices:

  • Optimize your device lifecycle with ITAD & redeployment services
  • Switch off office lights and equipment when not in use
  • Create a walk or bike to work program
  • Use recycling and compost bins in the workplace

The Importance of ITAD & Compliance

ITAD (IT Asset Disposition) is a set of operations and processes that focus on getting rid of obsolete device assets in an environmental-friendly and responsible manner. Businesses should deal with certified ITAD vendors, such as Vernon Technology Solutions a division of DCR Systems Group Inc., when disposing of, refurbishing, or reselling unwanted devices. This will help to decrease the risk of data breaches and minimize contributions to the global electronic waste issue. By extending the life of electronics through asset remarketing services, we can work together to minimize our environmental impacts.

Did you know Vernon and DCR are R2 certified companies? The R2 (Responsible Recycling) certification is an electronic recycling standard accredited by Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI). It is recognized as the global environmental, worker health and safety standard for electronic recyclers. Each facility must undergo an audit to ensure demonstrated conformance to the requirements in R2. We are proud to be R2 certified and to be a part of the sustainability journey in helping to build a circular economy.
