Sustainability will be a core priority for IT leads over the next two years with more than four in five (83%) saying that operating more sustainably is a key part of their plans, according to research from Brother UK.
The survey of 500 UK IT leads found that this ambition holds significant potential to cut energy use and the amount of waste that goes to landfill.
Just half of the respondents currently recycle waste (51%), only 43% use refurbished or recycled hardware and less a third (32%) choose tech and IT solutions that are energy efficient.
Liam Fitzgerald, Head of Distribution and Reseller Sales at Brother UK, said: “The findings show that enhancing sustainability will be high on the agenda for IT leads when it comes to purchasing decisions, from the products they buy and how they procure them to the green initiatives they can access.
“This presents resellers with a significant opportunity to provide added value to customer relationships, by understanding where they can cut the amount of waste they produce and energy their equipment consumes to provide the right solutions."
