Key areas of focus for the Investment Recovery Association and its members:

Maximizing Value Through Asset Recovery & Recycling 

Asset recovery and recycling are more than Eco-friendly buzzwords—they are vital practices for modern businesses. By effectively recovering assets, companies can reclaim significant value from unused or end-of-life equipment. Our members, IR professionals who buy, sell, and manage surplus assets, understand that recycling goes beyond basic environmental compliance. They tap into the latent value of recycled materials to fuel a circular economy. We help our members create innovative solutions that contribute to a greener future.


Optimizing Lifecycle Value with ITAD and ITAM

IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) and IT Asset Management (ITAM) are essential components of modern IT governance. In an era where technology rapidly changes, managing the disposal and turnover of IT assets presents a significant challenge. Investment Recovery Association play a crucial role in this sector by offering training and networking opportunities that empower our members. Our members understand the complexities of IT asset lifecycle management. We help them stay updated on the latest industry standards, ensuring secure, compliant disposal of obsolete technology and maximizing the utility and financial value of every asset.
