We call this Circular Transformation® for IT Asset Disposition
A proper sustainability plan should include reuse as the first option of IT Asset Disposition. Keeping products in use for longer increases the lifespan of resources. However, when products and their parts reach the end of their useful life, you need to be assured their materials are being used to manufacture new products. Circular Transformation® is an innovative process that provides the necessary traceability and tracking to create a closed-loop system.
Third-party certifications are the foundation of Circular Transformation®. All of Apto's facilities are e-Stewards certified, which is the highest standard in IT Asset Disposition. This standard prevents the improper disposal of hazardous e-waste while defining a downstream material tracking system. Learn more about e-Stewards and other certifications here.
Prior to Circular Transformation® many companies are experiencing a lack of transparency along with confusing tracking and reporting. Apto helps solve these problems:
Circular Transformation® provides direct data on raw materials from smelters and refiners with our improved tracking system and verified supply chain traceability. Transparency uncovered.
Previous Tier 4 companies are now at Tier 1. (We're simplifying the process by eliminating companies that aren't needed). Single tier downstream provides for better data and tracking. Smelters and refiners can provide direct data on raw material customers and circularity applications.
