Climate Change: The Critical Issue and the Circular Solution  

sustainable it

We stand on the precipice of a global crisis. Climate change isn’t just knocking at our door; it stormed in uninvited. Our planet has warmed by approximately 2 degrees Fahrenheit over the last century. This may seem like a seemingly insignificant number, yet it signifies a dramatic shift in our climate system. 

The repercussions are far-reaching, devastating, and undeniably real. Glaciers and ice sheets are melting. Sea levels are rising. Heatwaves are intensifying. These aren’t abstract concepts or distant threats; they’re tangible changes occurring now, inflicting irreversible damage on our people and planet. 

Every corner of our globe faces unique challenges. Heat waves, heavy downpours, and rising sea levels compromise infrastructure, agriculture, fisheries, and ecosystems worldwide. Meanwhile, extreme heat poses significant risks to health, energy, and agriculture. The health impacts alone are staggering, with climate change expected to cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year between 2030 and 2050. 

It is obvious that as a global society, we need to change the way we do some things. The carbon footprint impact of the aviation industry is well-reported, but the IT industry is equal to it in terms of its negative contribution.   

Now imagine if the laptop you’re using right now could help combat this crisis? That’s precisely what Circular Computing and remanufacturing offers. The power of innovation and technology has been harnessed to fight climate change through remanufactured laptops. Each laptop undergoes a comprehensive rebuild process, significantly reducing e-waste and positively impacting our environment. 

These aren’t your average laptops. They are not ‘refurbished’ they are ‘remanufactured’. They’re carbon-neutral, remanufactured to the highest standards, and come with a promise to the planet. Not only do we offset all our carbon emissions, in addition, for every laptop sold, we plant five trees. 

This initiative fights deforestation and helps to fight the balance of climate change. Trees absorb CO2, a primary greenhouse gas which contributes to global warming. Therefore, tree planting plays a critical role in mitigating climate change impacts, as well as positively impacting local communities. 

When you choose a Circular Computing laptop, you’re not just getting a high-quality, remanufactured device. You’re consciously reducing your carbon footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future. 

A Circular Computing Remanufactured Laptop produces only 6.34% of the CO2 compared with an average new laptop. Think about the significant positive impact of society mass-switching to Circular Computing’s carbon-neutral laptops. 

The sustainability benefits do not stop there as these laptops help to conserve water and precious mineral resources. A new laptop requires approximately 190,000 litres of water and the mining of 1,200kg of earth. By opting for a remanufactured laptop, you’re rejecting wasteful resource use and embracing a sustainable alternative. 

Isn’t it time we collectively take responsibility and choose sustainability? The choice is yours. Stand up against climate change and embrace the circular economy. Together, we can create a future where technology and nature coexist in harmony. 

Because IT shouldn’t cost the Earth.
