Quadrent signs first green lease agreement in Australia with Allens

Quadrent has signed its first Quadrent Green Lease agreement in Australia with Allens in a move that will see disadvantaged children receiving laptops from the top-tier firm.

Allens will donate 50 high-quality, end-of-lease laptops to The Smith Family's Learning for Life programme, which supports young Australians facing economic challenges with their educational needs, especially via the provision of digital devices.

“Agreements like this go a long way to ensuring all Learning for Life students are equipped with a laptop and have access to reliable internet, a necessity for a 21st century education”, The Smith Family CEO Doug Taylor said.

 The firm confirmed that under the agreement, all laptops, computers, monitors and mobile phones leased through Quadrent will be “securely wiped and environmentally repurposed, recycled or redistributed” following their retirement from corporate use.

“As Allens continue to refresh their current devices through the Quadrent Green Lease, together we are creating ‘a river of digital devices’ into the future. Collaborating at this level with our customers means that together we can reduce Australia’s digital exclusion problem in a sustainable manner”, Quadrent Australian GM Simon Cubbin said.

Allens COO Matt Graham added that the partnership with Quadrent “combines two of the strategic pillars of our community strategy – alleviating disadvantage and promoting sustainability”.

Non-bank lender Quadrent specialises in equipment finance and lease accounting software.
