Procurement and sustainability in IT
Working with our resellers and OJEU compliant frameworks, we have seen a development within public procurement as our remanufactured laptops are making budgets go much further without compromising on performance or quality.
Committed to sustainability and supporting your bespoke social values is at the core of what Circular Computing™ provide with our carbon-neutral remanufactured laptops.
Our unique remanufacturing process means our products are kind to the public purse as well as the planet.

Benefits to a UK City Council
Saving on cost and saving the planet
Purchasing over 1000 remanufactured, carbon-neutral laptops, one major City Council in the UK has found that as well as getting high quality, enterprise-grade laptops from leading brands, they could also get a full three-year warranty and a multitude of sustainability benefits:
- 1,200 tonnes of waste avoided by preventing the production of new laptops
- 380 tonnes of CO₂ equivalent greenhouse gases prevented at manufacture
- 5,000 trees planted in India & Africa
- 600 tonnes of CO₂ equivalent greenhouse gases sequestered from the atmosphere
Understanding the Social Value Index
The true cost of sustainability in procurement
We are continuing to create resources to help build the understanding of what the social value index can do for local government, council and public procurment in general.
We look forward to launching our Social Value Index whitepaper in relation to our products, but in the meantime check out our blog introducing the subject and what it means to public procurement.
Need to purchase on a framework?
Circular Computing™ is on the OJEU compliant Everything ICT Framework
Everything ICT enables public sector and local authorities to purchase technology directly to save time and money on procurement. There is no longer a need for three quotations to be gathered which makes it easy for public procurement to purchase our remanufactured carbon-neutral laptops.
30-day free trial laptop
The quality of our laptops is so good, people have difficulty believing that they are remanufactured second-user units. The only way to find out for yourself is to take a closer look with a no-risk, no obligation trial unit.
If you are not impressed, just put it back in the box and send it back – we’ll even pay for the return postage.
Of course, we think you will want to keep it and order a whole batch because you love it as much as we do!
