Lead the Way for a Sustainable Future - Embracing a Circular Economy

In today's climate, sustainability has become a core focus for businesses across industries. Embracing the principles of the circular economy has proven to be an effective strategy for minimising waste, reducing environmental impact and creating a more eco-friendly future.

What is a Circular Economy?
In simple terms, a circular economy is an economic system that aims to minimise waste and maximise resource efficiency. It is a departure from the traditional linear model of "take, make, dispose" and promotes a more sustainable approach. In a circular economy, products are designed to be durable, reusable, and recyclable, and materials are kept in use for as long as possible. This concept is inspired by natural ecosystems, where waste from one organism becomes a valuable resource for another. By adopting circular economy principles, businesses and societies can reduce environmental impact, conserve resources, and create a more resilient and prosperous future. (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2023.)

Committing to Sustainability

Through partnering with global technology manufacturer Zebra Technologies, VisionID can help our customers on their journey towards a more sustainable future.

The Zebra Circular Economy Program promotes sustainability and reduces the environmental impact of standard product lifecycles in the supply chains of both Zebra, its partners and its customers. You can manage today’s challenges while planning for tomorrow with smart solutions that are good for your budget and friendly to the environment. (Zebra Technologies, 2023)

By prioritising sustainability, our solutions from Zebra Technologies deliver innovative technology that not only meets the needs of users, but also promotes environmental stewardship.

Designing for Durability and Recyclability

One of the key principles of the circular economy is designing products for longevity and recyclability. Zebra Technologies have developed rugged and durable technology solutions that can withstand the demands of various industries. Because these devices have a longer lifespan, it means the need for frequent replacements is minimised, reducing electronic waste and conserving valuable resources.

In the design and manufacturing process, Zebra Technologies consider the entire lifecycle of products, from sourcing materials to end-of-life disposal. They are committed to using eco-friendly and recyclable materials whenever possible, ensuring that products can be efficiently repurposed or recycled at the end of their useful life.

Zebra Technologies Circular Economy Program

Through partnering with Zebra Technologies, VisionID can help to integrate innovative, environmentally conscious technology solutions that can optimise business operations, reduce waste, and enhance overall efficiency.

Certified Refurbished Devices

The Zebra Certified Refurbished Device program gives new life into pre-owned Zebra Mobile Computing Devices so they can continue providing customers with the performance edge they need to run their business at a lower cost. These devices are fully functional and operational, undergoing a rigorous 24-step refurbish process to ensure they are at the highest standard for their next life.

Zebra Buy-Back Program

If you have Zebra devices you're no longer using, you can sell them back to Zebra and put money back into your own budget. Offset the cost of new Zebra technology, clear space and reduce your impact on the environment. This also helps when you are looking for a way to dispose of your older Zebra mobile computing devices so they don’t end up in a landfill, as Zebra provides a way for you to do this while also offering the potential for you to get money back for turning in your pre-owned devices, allowing you to reinvest in purchasing new Zebra technology to meet your changing business needs.

Zebra Recycling Services

The Zebra Recycling Service helps you to create a sustainable end-of-life plan for your used mobile devices, printers and more. We can help to facilitate the recycling of your used Zebra, Motorola, Psion, Symbol, or Xplore devices free of charge. This initiative can help business to protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gases and toxic chemicals, and will even provide a certificate of recycling.
