Long live tech™
Extending the life of every electronic device saves the planet (and your bottom line). Since 2014, Fortune 100 companies have entrusted Sage with the secure refurbishment or ethical recycling of hundreds of thousands of devices per year.
Your tech's extended life is our mission.
E-Waste is one of the most pressing issues of our time
In 2019, we created 53.6 M tons of electronic waste
Only 17% was processed appropriately
The total weight equals 350 cruise ships
This number is expected to double by 2030
Sage envisions a world free of toxic eWaste, where tech is available and affordable for everyone.
Our unwavering commitment to making the world more sustainable and equitable means your assets are always secure, protected, and bound for a higher purpose.
This is Why We Exist
Reusing Tech generates 23x the environmental savings.
Creating one new computer, laptop or phone requires a tremendous amount of fossil fuels, which takes a significant toll on our planet’s natural resources. That’s why it’s always best to reuse rather than buy new.
In fact, according to Gartner, the embodied carbon of endpoint devices accounts for nearly half of overall IT greenhouse gas emissions. When these devices are “recycled” they are likely to cause further environmental damage.
Why e-Stewards Certified Recycling is important
Tech doesn't biodegrade
When a computer is recycled, many of its materials don't decompose. Heavy metals and other toxins can be released into our water, rivers, and oceans.
Rogue cross-border shipping
In 2019, an estimated 5.1 million metric tons (9.5%) of the global e-waste was shipped across borders, while 35% of this transboundary movement was controlled and 65% was not.
Massive ewaste exposure
30 million people in 15 countries are exposed to e-Waste every year. Underdeveloped nations bear the brunt of this crisis.
True impact starts within your IT Lifecycle
Today’s IT leaders have an opportunity and, we would argue, an obligation, to dramatically decrease their corporation’s carbon footprint.
With mandatory climate reporting rules for major U.S. and European companies on the horizon and with corporate boards more incentivized than ever to meet Environmental Social Governance (ESG) standards (Wall Street Journal), for many corporations sustainability across every aspect of an IT department is no longer optional.
Fortunately, Sage is dedicated to guiding our clients toward making these goals a reality.
