The Circular Economy and ITAD’s Role In Sustainability

IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) services play a pivotal role in promoting environmental sustainability. ITAD ensures proper e-waste disposal, preventing dangerous chemicals and metals from polluting landfills and ecosystems.

Key Industries affected and how the circular economy can alleviate their impact:

  • Textiles: Implementing circular practices could cut water consumption by up to 85%, land use by 40%, and carbon footprint by 44%.
  • Manufacturing: Manufacturing and product use account for nearly 50% of global greenhouse emissions. Embracing global circularity could reduce these emissions by 39%, contributing to climate mitigation.
  • E-waste: Recycling electronics in the circular economy, specifically through IT Asset Disposition (ITAD), not only mitigates pollution but also recovers high-value metals worth nearly $50 billion annually.

As environmental concerns grow, the ITAD industry's role in supporting sustainability and revenue goals becomes increasingly vital. Learn more about ServerMonkey's ITAD services and how they can support your enterprise's sustainability and revenue goals.

​Announcing a New Move: ServerMonkey Optics and Cables

Today we’re doing something we’ve never done at ServerMonkey, and we think you’ll like it. We’re releasing 100% OEM compatible, ServerMonkey branded and supported optical transceivers for Dell Technologies and HPE, along with optical cables for Dell EMC. We’ve partnered with leading manufacturers of Tier 1 optics, used by the largest telecommunications companies, to ensure quality, reliability, and value.

This is a big deal for our customers. Now we have new ways to support them with the network connectivity options they need to build high-performance, high-reliability infrastructure. Instead of searching the web for the right transceivers, armed with a part number, a description, or even just a picture, they’ll be able to come to us for help, choosing optics from our full range of options, from 10Gb to 100Gb. We even have a parts compatibility matrix, making it easy for you to match an OEM part with the ServerMonkey equivalent.

Not only are we giving you a full range of options, we’ve made our options better. For starters, we’re keeping the cost of our optics around 40-65% of the OEM optics. We’re adding a lifetime warranty with next day parts dispatch. And we’re making sure that our customers can buy optics with their servers or as add-on parts to support existing infrastructure. In other words, we’re offering speed and simplicity others can’t match.

So what else do you need to know? They’re immediately available, here’s a link to the press release, a link to the optics section of our website, and if you want hands-on assistance, email us here with questions or sales inquiries. We’re ready to help!
