Turn Surplus Assets into Assets that Drive Sustainability

Companies committed to sustainability need programs and processes that support their pledge to seek better ways to advance the initiative across their enterprise. Currently, the lack of a properly managed surplus asset program is misaligned with this pledge, and has a negative environmental, financial, and social impact.

EquipNet provides a surplus asset management platform that accelerates a company’s commitment to sustainability and mitigates the negative impact that results from undermanaged, or mismanaged surplus assets.  We deliver an enterprise-wide measurable way to track results.

Sustainability Benefits in the Used Equipment Market

Create a circular economy and focus on sustainability initiatives with EquipNet’s four-phase approach for managing your surplus equipment.

Positive Impacts of Surplus Asset Management 

Ensure Compliance

By managing asset disposals through a standardized, transparent process, your company ensures that the proper legal protections are in place and that all transactions comply with applicable corporate and government regulations.

Landfill Avoidance 

Substantial metric tons of surplus equipment previously destined for landfill is diverted for Re-Use (Internal and External)

Environmental Recycling

Through our strategic partnership with a leader in electronic recycling, EquipNet provides an environmentally friendly, safe and secure recycling program that complies with local and federal EPA guidelines. Our partner has implemented an environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001:2004. Our recycling partner, Windfield Alloy, is an R2:2013 certified environmental recycler.


Surplus assets previously “hidden” across the enterprise are unlocked to be redeployed (internal) or remarketed (external). Redeployed surplus equipment extends its useful life, as well as delivers substantial cost avoidance to the enterprise. 


Serviceable surplus assets that lack residual value (internal or external) can be donated to universities, school systems, nonprofits, and developing regions.

Running an environmentally-friendly business helps to promote sustainability. Reducing the impact on the environment and preserving natural resources is an organization’s responsibility, a concept that promotes sustainability and saves costs.
