Remanufactured laptops for charities

The sustainable IT procurement strategy

WHETHER YOUR organisation NEEDS 5 OR 5,000, OUR CARBON NEUTRAL REMANUFACTURED LAPTOPS DELIVER RELIABLE IT - AND THE COST REDUCTIONS CAN ALLOW MORE OF THE MONEY TO GO TOWARDS DOING GOOD.

Carbon neutral laptops with up to 40% cost savings

Single departments or entire organisations run smoother when everyone is using the same specification, brand and quality of laptop. Our unique remanufacturing process allows us to guarantee a consistent quality of HP, Dell and Lenovo laptops in large volumes.

Our remanufactured laptops not only offer up to 40% cost savings but empower you to maximise the amount of money that goes to your core charitable acivities. This aligns seamlessly with Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles, promoting transparency and accountability according to Corporate Social Responsibility Disclosure (CSRD) standards. 

Beyond cost-effectiveness, this directly contributes to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically addressing SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), and SDG 13 (Climate Action). Furthermore, our tree planting initiative aligns with SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 15 (Life on Land).

PROCURE REMANUFACTURED WITH CONFIDENCE

Our laptops all go through the same BSI Kitemark™ certified Circular Remanufacturing Process, meaning every laptop has a complete inside-and-out refresh - guaranteeing consistent premium quality in large volumes with every laptop.

The awarding of the BSI Kitemark certifies that our process produces products 'equal to or better than new' as required by the BS standard BS8887-220 and BS8887-211.

Become part of the sustainability story

Employees, stakeholders, industries and governments are increasingly demanding that more organisations are becoming carbon neutral and, in so doing, make a valuable contribution to protecting our planet and its fragile ecosystems.

Early adopters of such initiatives are seeing the commercial and PR benefits of such efforts. Achieving and maintaining carbon neutral status is something businesses can proudly shout about.

Buying a remanufactured laptop demonstrates that sustainability is a part of your core values and is a real, practical deliverable as part of your social responsibility programs. Additionally, it will enable organisations to make tangible progress in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) and Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) reporting. 

By reducing environmental impact, enhancing social responsibility, and promoting governance and transparency, charities can not only contribute to a more sustainable future but also strengthen their reputation as responsible corporate citizens. 

CASE STUDY

WWF UK

To align with the organisation's sustainability goals, WWF procured 560 HP 840 G5 laptops and opted into Circular Computing's buy back scheme for a truly circular IT procurement approach.

Dominic Elton, Head of IT Services, felt the experience has been really positive: not only does it send the right message to their peers, but it also aligns to their mission to change the way they purchase products across all parts of their organisation.

"We're delighted to be able to refresh our laptop estate with a truly sustainable, viable product, for the first time, thanks to our work with Circular Computing. We are facing a climate and nature crisis, and WWF-UK is focused on ensuring our own sustainability through procurement, including how we procure for IT. This is another step that will help to reduce our carbon footprint, without compromising on quality of delivery."

KINGS COLLEGE HOSPITAL FOUNDATION

After a successful initial trial to ensure compliance with performance, quality and network compatibility, King’s College Hospital Foundation Trust decided to rent 400 Dell Latitude Laptops.

Significant cost savings were made, laptops were delivered on time and performed as expected with no operational down time for the 12,000 staff that were trained. In addition, this sustainable IT procurement contributes to the NHS’s Green Plan and Net Zero 2045 ambition for Scope 3 emissions.

Julie Dinning, ICT Operations Manager of Kings College Hospital Foundation Trust stated:

"Working together with procurement and operations, we secured a really good deal for the Hospital and this meant we could redeploy budget and resources into other key projects that enable us to deliver excellence in patient care. Circular Computing were a pleasure to deal with and accommodated our tight deadline.."

A 1-year return to base (RTB) warranty is offered as standard on all our remanufactured laptop models, which can be increased to a 3-year warranty on the core models.

We will ensure a replacement is sent out the next working day; working from home or in the office, we’ll get them up and running again with minimal downtime.

ACHIEVE SUSTAINABILITY GOALS

The first step towards becoming a carbon neutral and more sustainable company is to assess your current footprint.

160,000 laptops are disposed of every day in the EU alone. For every new laptop made, an average of 331kg of CO2 is created, 190,000 litres of water is used and 1,200kgs of virgin earth and rock is mined.

To reverse the considerable environmental damage created by the IT industry, we need to make changes in the way we procure IT. By procuring remanufactured laptops instead of buying new ones, your organisation will be on the path to a more sustainable future.

Every Circular Computing remanufactured laptop means:

A certified carbon-neutral product through our unique remanufacturing process and further funding to carbon-offsetting programs

We support social projects that not only create jobs and empower vulnerable communities, but teach renewable farming techniques and conserve the local forests and wildlife

5 trees planted through our reforestation partners for every laptop purchased to be planted in Africa, India, the US and the UK

Supporting solar, wind and clean energy projects across the world

Laptops for Charities

When a Circular Computing laptop is purchased, not only do you get a leading-brand carbon neutral remanufactured laptop, but you also help invest in clean energy projects around the world and finance 5 trees to be planted in your name, through our reforestation partners.
