Quantifying e-Waste in Corporate IT
Studying 3.5 million PCs can tell you a lot about Green IT and hardware decision-making.
Much of the discussion today surrounding climate change and technology focuses on data centers, cloud computing, and big tech companies like Google and Facebook.

In this edition of Nexthink Insights, we set out to answer the following questions:
- What percentage of old hardware (+3 years old) is salvageable?
- How much can your company save with smarter hardware refresh cycles?
- Is there a single IT issue that contributes to an enormous amount of energy (and productivity) loss?
- How does employee software and internet consumption impact the environment?
