Tier 1 have been a client of summ.it for over 12 years and it has been wonderful to see them achieving many amazing things in this time.
Tier 1 are an Asset Management company who specialise in the secure and ethical disposal of end of lifecycle IT equipment, offering a high level, totally managed solution that covers collection, guaranteed data security, re-marketing and environmental disposal. The company works with leading organisations in various industry sectors including financial and professional services, energy and utilities, technology, retail and increasingly in central government and the public sector. Tier 1 manage some of the largest and sought-after IT disposal projects in the UK offering a sustainable, ethical, and innovative solution to the inevitable cost versus risk dilemma.
In September 2017 it was announced that Tier 1 was to be featured in the 2017 Parliamentary Review, which is a great achievement for the company and recognises the positive contribution Tier 1 makes to their community and the environment. “The Parliamentary Review is an independent publication which aims to share the best practice among policy makers and business leaders”. The publication is sent to over 500,000 leading business executives and policy makers which means this feature is a great reach for Tier 1.
The feature praises the great work Tier 1 has been doing in partnership with HMP Forest Bank which is allowing equipment which was previously shredded and smelted by recycling partners to now be undertaken by prisoners who are able to benefit from the training and qualifications the process provides. The prisoners benefit from 30-40 hours of skilled work per week along with an NVQ in IT recycling and also a donation of the revenue made from this process goes to ‘Antz Junction’– a local charity who aid the rehabilitation of prisoners. The Parliamentary review stated “Ultimately, this new approach to recycling is aimed at reducing re-offending rates together with the associated benefits that this brings to the community.”
Laura Brogden, an accountant here at summ.it has worked with Tier 1 for many years, “Having worked closely with the team at Tier 1 for several years, I know how important supporting the local community is for them. It is wonderful to see them receiving this recognition knowing how much it means to everyone.”
We are proud to call Tier 1 and their amazing team our clients and look forward to continuing our relationship and seeing what other great things they achieve. You can read the whole feature from the review here: https://www.theparliamentaryreview.co.uk/editions/environment/environment
