Taking account of pollution generated from electronic sources (Laudato Si 21)
One of our IT Asset and Discovery Team responsibilities is to manage the disposition of decommissioned and retired information technology equipment. In June 2019 we partnered with e-waste vendor ER2. ER2 services all of CommonSpirit’s clinics, hospitals, data centers and system offices to securely handle the disposal of all retired electronic devices. ER2 is R2 certified, which means they responsibly recycle anything they cannot refurbish. Nothing ends up in a landfill. We are proud to report that since we began our partnership ER2 has recycled more than 1 million pounds of CommonSpirit e-waste.
