How Android Enterprise can help reduce e-waste

Global electronic waste (e-waste) is becoming an increasing problem, with businesses producing a significant amount of it. Over five billion phones were thrown away in 2022, which is enough to circle the Earth over 15 times. Business leaders are recognizing the importance of sustainability, with many committing to net-zero targets by 2050 and implementing circular economy practices. Companies with stronger sustainability practices can also expect higher earnings margins. One potential solution to reducing e-waste is a Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) strategy, where employees use their own devices for both work and personal use. This can significantly reduce e-waste and emissions from device production, as well as save energy from charging devices. Implementing a BYOD strategy for a 10,000-person workforce that needs one device per employee can save enough energy to power the average American household for nearly two years. It can also be cost-effective, with secure BYOD reducing spend on corporate hardware and management by up to 92% in the first year alone.
