OUR SUSTAINABLITY PROJECTS

5 tree planted for every laptop you buy

The 5 trees we plant for every laptop will absorb, over their lifetime, on average around 600kg of CO₂ to help compensate for the carbon emissions associated with the laptop - including 3 years of use by you.

211,973 trees planted

By purchasing one of our laptops, you have helped us plant 211,973 trees.

Working with our reforestation partners in Africa, India and the USA, we aim to help reduce the effects of global warming with our carbon reduction project investments. One hectare is enough space for 800-1200 trees. It takes just 240 Circular Computing™ laptops to fill an area the size of a football pitch with trees.

Sustainability projects

The forests that you are helping restore will alleviate poverty through income diversity for the poorest communities, and restore soils, water and biodiversity.

Mara, Tanzania

The aims of the project are to: restore the native forest, increase food security, create access to clean water and promote access to medicinal and other forest products and secure a regular income for the local villages.

Khasi Hills, India

The Khasi Hills project aims to restore native forest composition and protect diversity. It will also help support indigenous women and youth in the community and increase the income of the local communities.

Luanshya, Zambia

This project works with hundreds of small-scale farmers, providing them with training and tools in return for setting aside part of their lands to regenerate the Miombo woodland. As a result, they receive higher incomes, diversify their economic activities and learn new skills.

California, USA

Restore areas affected by wildfires throughout the whole of California, thus producing ecological benefits such as habitat restoration and erosion control. With these funds, hard-working foresters will dedicate time to promote improved vegetation planning and resource management.

Carbon-Netural-HP

A certified carbon neutral product

We take our commitment to the planet seriously, that's why we are a carbon neutral certified company and want to encourage other responsible business owners to do so too.

Our carbon footprint has been assessed following ISO 14064-1 and the GHG Protocol. Any residual Green House Gas emissions have been offset using verified projects to achieve carbon neutrality.

Clean energy and carbon reduction projects

Through our support of clean energy projects, we have offset the CO₂ emissions from the remanufacturing process so that every Circular Computing™ laptop is a certified carbon-neutral product.

These projects not only reduce the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere but helps some of the most vulnerable communities become more self sufficient, generate local income and help protect the Earth too.

2017 - 2018: Renewable energy

For our first year of carbon offsetting projects, we decided to invest in renewable energy initiatives such as Wayang Windu Geothermal Power, Kocaeli Landfill Gas to Electricity and Wind Based Power Generation by Panama Wind.

 

The electricity would be generated through sustainable means without causing any negative impact on the environment.

2018 - 2019: Clean drinking water

In 2018 we invested in 2 projects aimed at providing clean drinking water.

The project in Uganda is identifying broken down boreholes, renovating them and supplying a maintenance programme to ensure that clean, safe water is delivered as a result.

In Cambodia, producing locally made ceramic water purifiers means families no longer need to boil their water to make it safe; reducing indoor air pollution from wood burning- resulting in fewer respiratory illnesses.

2019 - 2020: Reducing degradation and deforestation

2019 saw our carbon offset investment go into UN-REDD (UN Reducing Degradation and Deforestation).

The programme supports countries that are leading the path to achieve reductions in emissions from deforestation.

It is a project which is close to our hearts and our ethical framework. It also achieves amazing results for the delicate ecosystem, and it is with great pride that we introduce such a project to our customers who are taking this journey with us.

2019 - 2020: Reducing degradation and deforestation

2020 - 2021: Reducing deforestation in Brazil

2020 - 2021 followed a similar theme to 2019, with our focus again being on reducing deforestation.

The Portel-Pará REDD project in Brazil is working to prevent unplanned deforestation in native forests, which has occurred due to logging, squatting and attempts to implement pastures. The project is expected to avoid over 22 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent greenhouse gas emissions over a 40-year period.

Together we can make more of these projects become a reality

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 five trees to be planted in your name, through our reforestation partners.

In the modern world, it is easy to feel powerless...but the actions of each and every one of us counts.
