89% of organizations recycle less than 10% of their IT hardware1
It’s a shocking statistic in a world so desperate for businesses to take more action for the good of the environment. Capgemini Research Institute surveyed 1,000 organizations with annual revenues more than $1 billion to understand their outlook on sustainable IT implementation.
53% say they do not have the required expertise for sustainable IT implementation1

Hardware disposal poses a significant threat to the environment.
E-waste contains toxic substances that are hazardous to human health and the environment. In the survey, Capgemini Research Institute states that in 2019, 53.6 million tons of e-waste were generated worldwide—an increase of 21% in five years.2 The volume of e-waste is expected to grow to 74 million tons by 2030.3 Proper disposal of e-waste is therefore critical. However, current levels of e-waste recycling fall far short. Only 17.4% of global e-waste generated in 2019 was recycled.3
