If a process cannot be maintained at a certain rate or level, by definition, it is unsustainable. End of life network assets falling into landfills is an unsustainable practice. Verizon & PICS work collectively to develop sustainable systems while setting out to reuse and recycle our existing waste to move forward towards a greener and brighter future.
“PICS is proud to receive this award from our partners at Verizon. This award is not just a testament to the PICS ethos of helping our partners deal with their networks in the most sustainable, green fashion but it is also a testament to Verizon’s commitment to be a leader in sustainability practice on a global scale”.Tim Williams CEO / President PICS Telecom
