Not easy being green? Time to change that tune.
Becoming a green business starts with the same things we do at home. Recycling programs, carpooling and automatic light shut off represented an excellent start – but we knew that was just the beginning of a bigger, more impactful march towards sustainability. Going green has also evolved into a larger, more involved movement that goes beyond saving money and the planet. Your organization’s environmental efforts reflect your corporate citizenship, affecting your ability to attract and retain the best talent in your industry. Just as IT simplifies several aspects of your business, from operations to employee collaboration, it can also make your green journey that much easier.
Sustainability in action
Where do you start?
Our FutureValue program supports your team in selecting the right technology and lifecycle strategy that support your goals while helping your organization make a tangible push for sustainability.
Committing your technology to a second life at the time of purchase can net your business up to 20% off initial IT hardware costs and allows you to refresh your technology sooner. More frequent device refreshes allow for an improved staff experience, lower lifecycle costs, and fewer security risks. Participating in FutureValue also earns you carbon credits and sends a positive brand message to your customers, partners, and current and future employees.

Practicing what we preach
It's one thing to say you care about the environment and another thing to actually do something about it. Our head office in Richmond Hill, built-in 2010, is 120,000 square feet of environment-friendly office space. One of the design goals was to reduce our headquarters’ ecological footprint.
Inside the building, large picture windows reduce lighting costs by 40%, and electronic sensors automatically turn off the lights when rooms are empty. The configuration centre boasts energy-efficient heating and cooling racks that significantly reduce power costs. Follow-me print stations have allowed us to right-size from more than 80 printers down to just eight, translating to far fewer wasted printouts and lower electrical consumption. We’ve reduced water consumption by 60% through low-flow toilets and auto-on faucets and by capturing rainwater for our drought-resistant landscaping. We also offer electric car charging stations in our parking lot to support our staff’s sustainability goals and further ingrain the green movement on a personal level.
