US companies still cautious on ITAD
An increasing number of American companies employ ITAD practices but (there’s always a BUT) they don’t go all in, simply because they’re not fully comfortable yet with the idea of ITAD. So, in parallel, US companies employ other practices of disposing of electronic hardware, like waste, direct donation and selling. These disposing practices are neither safe nor environmental.
This picture of the American ITAD market is painted in a new report from research firm Compliance Standards.
Inrego CEO Christoffer Sandell has read the report:
- It’s very much like the situation here in Europe. The European ITAD market is also maturing and gaining ground but yes - there are still a lack of knowledge and even misconceptions we need to address.
To Christoffer Sandell, there’s only one way to go for Europe's ITAD’s:
- The more IT equipment we reuse in a correct manner, the faster the ITAD market will be recognized. This will, in turn, create sustainable growth and give a positive impact on the circular economy.
