Resource efficiency and recycling - Emily Darko - 07-22-2020

The conversation in the breakout room barely had time to start! What are your tips for nailing recycling? How have you maximised resource efficiency? Anything you'd advise others not to do?

We've worked with some awesome small businesses on recycling and resource efficiency. Our laptop and electronic waste recyclers (Tier 1 & S2S) have the highest environmental and security credentials (so all our confidential data is secure), they refurbish our old devices and resell them, so this has turned into a revenue stream for us.
