New Zealand’s e-waste per capita

Global e-waste per capita

Of owned devices are e-wasted

Of Quadrent’s leased devices are e-wasted

Growing ESG Expectations

Much of this e-waste comes from large corporate users of technology who dispose of their unwanted, unused or outdated devices as they would any other waste item. These items don’t degrade and must be treated carefully to reduce the environmental impact and increase the recyclability of materials.

Additionally, having access and being able to use a laptop, a mobile phone and the internet is something most of us take for granted. However, the sobering fact is that 1 in 10 New Zealanders are excluded from performing these basic tasks.

The Quadrent Green Lease is a circular economy initiative designed to enable an organisational culture change to improve your business’ sustainability, by ensuring products, materials and devices are in use for longer, improving the productivity of these resources.

It also provides the opportunity for these devices to get into the hands of schools and community organisations who are crying out for the tools to get online and take advantage of the information many of us take for granted.

Who is Quadrent’s Green Lease Suitable For?

A Quadrent Green Lease is more than just another finance product. It’s designed to allow New Zealand organisations to proactively take action to ensure your technology is reused after it comes to the end of its useful life within a corporate environment. By increasing the reuse, repair, refurbishment, recycling and responsible disposal of these devices to create a closed loop, organisations can play their part in minimising the use of resources, e-waste, pollution, and carbon emissions.

Not only does this provide peace of mind that your company is meeting its regulatory requirements, but it forms an important part of demonstrating to other stakeholders such as your investors and customers that ESG is more than an acronym in your organisation.
