Wisetek Shortlisted for ESG Award at Business and Finance Awards
Wisetek is proud to announce that the company has been shortlisted for the ESG Award at this year’s Business and Finance Awards, which will take place on the 1st of December, at the Convention Centre in Dublin. This nomination is in recognition of the significant efforts across Wisetek to ensure sustainable practices and the integration of the circular economy into our operations.
Robust and impactful environmental, social, and governance policies and structures are an essential aspect of the strategy and day to day operations of Wisetek.
Wisetek’s ongoing work in the area of IT Asset Disposition, as well as our Zero-Landfill Policy that reduces needless e-waste and instead reuses or recycles redundant IT assets, formed the basis of this nomination. The nomination also recognises our work in launching our new e-commerce site, the Wisetek Store, which facilitates the sale of high-quality and sustainable refurbished IT devices to consumers.
Wisetek’s social and charitable initiatives were also a key reason for this recognition. This includes our work to assemble ventilators for the Irish healthcare system during the Covid-19 pandemic, our work with Tech2Schools to supply laptops to primary schools, our donation of batteries to the Deng Forest Community in Thailand, our partnership with Trees on the Land, and our internal e-waste collection initiatives.
Sean Sheehan, CEO of Wisetek, said: “This nomination is a tremendous honour and a true endorsement of all of the hard work put forth across the company to ensure that our Environmental, Social and Governance practices and initiatives are planned and executed to an incredibly high standard. While some organisations view ESG as a ‘nice to have’ aspect of their operations, to us it is a guiding principle which informs everything from our overall strategy to our day to day work at Wisetek.”
Wisetek was recently recognised as a finalist in three categories at the first ever Business and Finance ESG Awards, namely: The ESG Company Award (Enterprise), the Sustainable Supply Chain Award and the Circular Economy Award.
