At Island Joe, we don’t just talk about helping the environment, we do it. As a role model for environmentally sound IT practices, Island Joe Group can share the lessons we’ve learned with our clients. We will design a Green IT program that sets your company apart as a leader in environmentally sustainable green practices for the IT industry.
Responsible E-Cycling and Data Disposal
Island Joe Group brings practical expertise through our strict standards for environmental excellence. As an experienced Green IT partner for our clients, Island Joe will work with your local and regional companies and organizations to responsibly dispose of your company’s e-waste. In addition to providing you with a customized e-waste plan, we will work with your in-house environmental or IT managers to determine if your data is being sanitized in compliance with all relevant government regulations. Depending on the needs of your business, we can help ensure that the data destruction service you receive from Island Joe positions your company to comply with state regulations and such federal data privacy laws as:
- Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA)
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
- Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
- Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB Act)
- Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
Once we’ve designed your Green IT program, we’ll see it through by helping you take complete control of your asset’s lifecycle: we’ll track your equipment from cradle to grave, and provide certification that the unit was properly recycled, and that the data was destroyed beyond forensic reconstruction. As an added service, Island Joe will pick up your electronic materials and unused equipment, either as needed or on a regular schedule, and ensure that those materials are disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.
Saving Costs, Reducing Your Power Footprint
Not only will your business publicly benefit from demonstrating your commitment to the environment, but by choosing Green IT services you can save money as well. Island Joe can help you save hundreds or even thousands of dollars annually by configuring your equipment to conserve power automatically without disrupting your business.
Companies can realize even more savings by using Island Joe’s server virtualization option. By consolidating multiple server applications on a single physical server, you can save equipment and electricity costs without affecting performance.
Your Site—A No-Waste Zone
One of Island Joe’s key commitments to its customer is to never leave waste at your business site. You can be assured that when we install equipment or come to your location, we will remove any waste – including product packaging – and ensure that it is disposed of in compliance with our no-landfill policy.
Finding the Right Green IT Partners
Like you, we take pride in associating with only qualified and experienced vendors who take our needs seriously. At Island Joe, we have strict criteria that we apply to all of our vendors — from waste disposal to computer and equipment acquisition — and work only with recycling vendors who have a no-landfill policy for electronic materials.
Practicing What We Preach
To demonstrate our full commitment to Green IT, Island Joe headquarters and branch offices have a 100% no landfill policy. All paper, cardboards, cans, and bottles are recycled locally. We take our equipment to an e-cycling facility with a no landfill policy and take pride in obtaining electricity that is 100% wind powered.
