Sustainability has become higher on the agenda for the majority of companies. Simply put, it has a focus today that it didn’t have 5-10 years ago, and rightly so.
In order to align our services to the needs of our customers, and to be a pioneer within our own sector, we have elected to become an ITAD Partner of Circular Computing™.

If just one of your computers is selected to go through this complete remanufacturing journey, there is a massive impact that can be accomplished for each and every laptop. As an example, One laptop leaves your company and, through our services, it passes to Circular Computing™ and their remanufacturing process.
Already, this means 5 trees are planted. Once remanufactured, the laptop is sold to another customer and another 5 trees are then planted.
Through our support of reforestation projects, we aim to plant trees in the USA, India and Africa. Every laptop delivered through partnership with Circular Computing™ plants 10 trees by the time it reaches its next home.
By being part of the reforestation initiative which helps cool the planet, and remove CO2 from the atmosphere, your old laptop is the catalyst for this climate benefit as each tree removes 120KgCO2eq. in the first 20 years.
Every remanufactured laptop prevents approximately 316kg (700lb) of CO2 emissions by not buying new. For just 1,000 laptops, that’s the same as taking over 80 cars off the road for a year.
Using a remanufactured laptop avoids the mining of valuable precious minerals needed to manufacture a new laptop. This in turn also prevents the added e-waste from the disposal of a second-user laptop.
Over 190,000 litres (50,000 gallons) of water is saved from being used for extraction, refining & production of a new computer and its components. That is enough drinking water for the average American for over 700 years.
Every remanufactured, carbon-neutral laptop available from Circular Computing™ means:
A certified carbon-neutral product
Through a unique remanufacturing process and carbon-offsetting program
Support of social projects
That help create jobs and empower vulnerable communities
10 trees planted for every laptop
5 for every laptop selected for remanufacture and another 5 at second-life. All to be planted in Africa, India and the US through our reforestation partners
Supporting clean energy projects
Solar, wind and clean energy projects across the world
Circular Computing™ remanufacture old enterprise-grade, leading-brand laptops and give them a new lease of life.
If you continue to procure new laptops, you can still benefit as a company – the computers that leave your business could participate in this scheme.
However, if you wanted to look at making a bigger difference in terms of reducing your procurement costs and making greater sustainability gains, you may wish to consider adopting remanufacturing and Circular Computing™ laptops into your organizations set up today.
Leading brand, carbon-neutral remanufactured laptops, offering 97% of the performance of the latest models (from an independent study commissioned by Cranfield University) and up to 40% savings compared to brand new.
