3 Step wins Sustainability award
The 13th annual Leasing Life conference, one of the main events in the asset finance industry’s year, was held in Amsterdam on November 30th. With over 200 delegates, most of the industry was there to hear presentations and panel discussions about the challenges and opportunities the industry faces. In the evening, against stiff competition from top European leasing companies, 3 Step IT won the sustainability award.
3 Step IT continually works towards greater sustainability in IT. We’re Product Life Extension specialists: achieving 98% re-use of devices returned at the end of their planned life. Product Life Extension is a circular economy business model, and besides taking pride in developing our remarketing business, we are evangelists for the circular economy generally.
Over the last 12 months, we made real progress: we resell more and recycle fewer end-of-lease devices, so we provide a more sustainable extended life for the 1.8M assets we manage. We extended ISO certification throughout the One Remarketing operation: this provides the assurance you need from a trusted partner for secure data deletion, and the quality assurance our resale partners seek when they buy used product from us.
When we received the award, Carmen Ene, our CEO, commented:
‘Sustainability has always been at the heart of what we do, and it is a credit to all of our employees that this has been recognised by our partners and competitors’.
