Transforming your ITAD to sustainable ITAD

By Roger Grieve at SERI

Every organization performs an ITAD function, but just getting rid of your old IT assets and receiving some kind of return isn’t enough anymore. It’s time to transform your organization’s ITAD to Sustainable ITAD. 

Sustainable ITAD elevates the function to align with the goals of your entire organization, protecting you from data breaches, positively impacting your bottom line, and furthering organizational ESG and sustainability goals. And yes, ultimately moving out your old IT Assets.  

This session will discuss the differences between ITAD and Sustainable ITAD, outline the better decisions that create better outcomes, and give you the questions to help your organization rethink and reposition the ITAD function.
