CC_ATOS COP28 Blog_a

We are thrilled to announce our participation in the Atos Sustainability Conference 2023 – a hybrid event taking place during COP28. The urgency of the climate crisis underscores the importance of events like these in aligning collective action for positive change.

The event has high-level representation from Circular Computing which includes Steve Haskew, Head of Sustainability and Social Leadership, and Conrad Mohr, Director of Remanufacturing, who will be available for meetings from the 4th to the 8th of December 2023.

We will be supporting the Atos Sustainability Conference on Wednesday, December 6th, hosted by Atos, a top 5 global IT Managed Service Provider. The conference will feature thought-provoking talks by industry leaders including Amazon, ATOS, WWF, Pure Storage, Dell, and Circular Computing.

Our representatives, Steve Haskew and Conrad Mohr, are eager to meet with you during the conference. They’re ready to share insights about our innovative remanufacturing process that significantly reduces CO2 emissions compared to manufacturing new laptops. To book a meeting, either in person or virtually, please reach out through their LinkedIn profiles or via email.

We are proud to be the first and only BSI Kitemark certified remanufacturer. This certification is not just a badge; it’s a testament to our rigorous quality standards and our steadfast dedication to sustainability.

As pioneers in sustainable tech, we have developed a process to remanufacture laptops, reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 316kg (700lb) per laptop compared to buying new. A peer-reviewed scientific study by Cranfield University finds that a Circular Computing Remanufactured Laptop produces only 6.34% of the CO2 compared with an average new laptop. Such innovative solutions are essential to achieving net-zero targets and advancing towards a circular economy.

We actively engage with global companies, governments, NGOs, and quality standards agencies to accelerate the transition to a sustainable future for IT procurement and use. We have sold a huge number of carbon-neutral remanufactured HP, Dell, and Lenovo laptops, saved millions of pounds for customers, made huge reductions in CO2 Scope 3 emissions, preserved water and virgin earth resources. Moreover, we’ve successfully eliminated eWaste from our process and planted hundreds of thousands of trees across three continents, contributing to a cooler planet and healthier communities.

At COP28, we’re championing the cause for Technology & Innovation, urging the industry to rethink its approach. By remanufacturing carbon-neutral laptops, we offer a tangible solution to this pressing issue – a testament to our commitment to sustainability and ethical practices.

Atos Sustainability Conference will be providing a platform to discuss and promote our green tech solutions. In addition, we will be attending the Climate Action Innovation and Sustainability Zone along with other UK PLC attendees to discuss how our laptop remanufacturing factory in the UAE enables the circular economy of IT and accelerates the transition to Net Zero. By choosing remanufactured IT, we can contribute to a circular economy, reduce our environmental impact, and move closer to achieving the 2030 agenda and the SDGs goals.

Join the conversation at COP28 and be a part of the solution for a more sustainable and climate-resilient world. Circular Computing stands as a beacon of hope, demonstrating how innovative technology and a circular economy mindset can drive significant change and propel us towards a Net Zero future.

It’s time we responded to the planet’s SOS.

Embrace sustainability. Choose remanufactured IT. Make a difference with Circular Computing.

Because IT shouldn’t cost the Earth.
