World’s first carbon neutral laptops arrive in DenmarkISSUE NO. 1
UK based Circular Computing, the world’s first computer remanufacturer, is recruiting a network of partners across Europe to bring its range of carbon neutral enterprise-grade laptops to market.
Over 160 million new laptops are made every year, using critical natural resources and significantly contributing to carbon emissions and climate change. Meanwhile, 160,000 laptops are disposed of every day in the EU alone, resulting in million tons of e-waste. And it’s all completely unnecessary – over 70% of discarded laptops could be reused.
Using a circular economy business model, Circular Computing takes thousands of ex-lease computers from large corporations every month. These then go through a rigorous 5-hour remanufacturing process during which they are dismantled, cleaned, repaired, upgraded and refinished in a state of the art, purpose-built remanufacturing facility.
Organizations across the world which opt for these to replace their existing laptops have already saved millions of dollars, helping to reduce carbon emissions, preserve the earth’s dwindling resources and eliminate a mountain of e-waste.
Elitecom ApS, Denmark’s leading IT business, has been chosen to spearhead the drive for Circular Computing in Denmark as they have demonstrated a passion and a vision of a better future for people and planet.
Jan Roedahl, CEO of Elitecom commented, “We’re delighted to announce our exciting new collaboration with Circular Computing to bring sustainable, affordable and environmentally-friendly laptops to the Danish market. Circular Computing is globally recognized as a world first and Elitecom shares many of its core values. It’s a win for us, a win for our customers and a win for the planet.”
For the first time, IT procurement professionals, business managers and school headteachers in Denmark can now get great value for money enterprise-grade laptops, knowing that they are also the world’s most sustainable, ethically produced and eco-friendly computers available.
