World Earth Day: Be the Change
If you are reading this blog, chances are you have a keen interest in protecting our planet. Great- We feel the same way too! If you are unsure of how or where to start, there is no better time like now to ‘Be the Change’.
We are soon approaching the 50-year milestone since millions of members of the public took to the streets to raise awareness for issues surrounding the environment. Pressing issues which sparked the movement of World Earth Day included: the increasing levels of pollution and the frightening effects on biodiversity. Today, World Earth Day is now celebrated across the globe on April 22nd with over 1 billion people in 192 countries taking part in what is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world earthday.org.
The Earth Day Network emphasizes how Earth Day continues to be a crucial point in time, a day that holds the status as the largest secular observance in the world and continues to inspire many corporations and governments around the globe to implement and action changes in environmental policies.
Getting Involved: Join the Movement
The question is how do you play your part? Efforts such as taking part in activities to clean up your street or endeavoring to recycle more are two simple examples of how you as an individual can start to make a real difference.
The next step then is deciding how your company can make sustainability a top corporate priority?
At Wisetek, we strive for maximum sustainability through various environmental policies and corporate initiatives. This is a top-down companywide commitment to environmental best practice and by supporting a zero landfill policy operation.
Our partnership with WEEE Ireland combines our efforts in the secure recycling of Irish data technology.
Corporate social responsibility has become a top priority for the world’s biggest companies but how do you know if your business is achieving its full potential? Wisetek’s Sustainable Earth Program provides participating customers with a certificate of assurance that all processing is fully transparent, secure, auditable and is compliant with the highest global environmental regulatory recycling standards.
In honour of Earth Day, we are excited to join forces with WEEE Ireland in assisting Apple HQ in Cork as part of their Earth Day Initiative this month. We will be providing on-site shredding services to Apple employees for small e-waste such as mobile phones. This is a great opportunity for Apple’s team to clear out any old or broken mobile phones they may have lying around the house while also positively contributing to the environment. There are many ways Wisetek can help your company “go green” and if you have some ideas in mind we love for you to get in touch.
