Apto Solutions Named as the 2018 Winner for Circular Economy SME

“It is an honor for our organization to be a part of such an important movement and global organization.”

James KilKelly, CEO of Apto Solutions

It is with great pride and excitement that we announce Apto Solutions’ most recent achievement: The Circulars 2018 Young Global Leaders Award for Circular Economy (SME). James Kilkelly attended the interactive Circulars event in Davos in late January and was presented with the award in front of over 100 global public and private sector leaders. There, he was able to share with industry giants—like HP, Apple, and Google—the innovation and the passion behind Apto Solutions’ contributions to sustainable business practices and the circular economy culture.

According to The Circulars committee, Apto Solutions was selected over other contenders due in great part to our efforts supporting the enterprise sector, including AptoPulse’s IT lifecycle management services, Apto FLEX’s mobile-device-as-a-service offerings, and our trade-in programs that have processed over 100,000 devices since 2001. Moreover, The Circulars commended us for the 20,000 metric tons of e-waste that we have successfully diverted from landfills and for the consequent resources that we successfully recycled back into the economy.

We are thankful to all who have contributed in helping Apto Solutions earn this prestigious award, and we are proud of your commitment to the cause. Congratulations to all of the winners, and let’s continue to push forward; here’s to the next 20,000 tons.
