Mitel Creating Green Opportunities
From teleworking to virtual conferencing, Mitel’s portfolio of IP solutions assists companies in reducing their carbon footprint by facilitating daily collaboration and communications without the need for travel.

“Mitel’s green initiatives started with a number of employees who were interested in environmental factors,” says Jim Davies. “We started some new initiatives with our new range of IP products to reduce the carbon footprint. Such as reducing commuting by teleworking and reducing international travel by using collaboration tools. Even the products themselves reduce the power consumption. For example, our average telephone uses about half the power of other standard phones in the industry.”

An ISO 14001-certified company since 1999, the Mitel end-of-life equipment-recycling program ensures that all e-waste designated telephony equipment is decommissioned at local area facilities. The equipment decommissioning and destruction is carried out in such a manner as to not be harmful to the environment; and that scrap metal and precious metal components are recovered and recycled for re-use. The end-of-life equipment-recycling program is available in the U.S. and the U.K.
