Waste management

Our program for collecting and recycling solid and universal waste meets established best practices and local regulations. Over the past two decades, we reduced our hazardous waste generation by more than 99%. In 2022, we generated zero hazardous waste from our operations in the U.S.

All electronic equipment we sell (both our products and those sourced from other vendors) complies with the European Union’s (EU) Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive mandating electronics to be free of certain heavy metals, flame retardants and phthalates. We also work to comply with and regularly monitor the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation and legislation in each jurisdiction in which we operate.

We’re further committed to minimizing waste from our products by actively focusing on areas within our control, such as design and end-of-life recoverability and recycling. When distributing products, we endeavor to opt for environmentally safe packing materials and shipping cartons.

The Unisys end-of-life product disposition program has been active since 1997, well in advance of EU legislation. Since then, we have recovered 45.5 million pounds of obsolete products internally and products from clients globally and processed them through recycling partners and third-party facilities. In 2022, more than 200,000 pounds of end-of-life electronics were collected as a part of this program, which is designed to incorporate applicable compliance obligations, including with the EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive.
