While many claim to do so, Sage is one of the only ITAD providers placing the secure reuse of electronics at the forefront of our practice in order to slow climate change.
By partnering with Sage Sustainable Electronics to reuse more and recycle less, IT departments can securely produce higher yields of like-new refurbished devices while also meeting corporate responsibilities to decrease carbon emissions.
LEading the Industry for Over 25 Years
Who We Work For
Our co-founders, Bob Houghton and Jill Vaské, are ITAD sustainability pioneers. As founders of Redemtech, they defined best practices for the ITAD industry in security, asset management, and responsible recycling—including foundational support for the e-Stewards Certification program, the Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher program, and the Coalition for American Electronics Recycling.
When they founded Sage in 2014, their combined ITAD expertise and unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability resulted in an ITAD company designed with sustainability at the forefront. Our mission is to serve the following (and in this order): the planet, our customers, our colleagues, our communities, our suppliers, and our shareholders.
