Remanufactured laptops for Public Procurement

Reliable and sustainable IT in the public sector

Sustainable IT for a circular economy

Circular Computing™ offers a smart and sustainable IT strategy for your organisation.

Our remanufactured carbon neutral laptops, from leading brands such as HP, Dell and Lenovo, are not only good for the environment, but they also cost up to 40% less compared to buying new.

There is no compromise on quality either. Our laptops are remanufactured to the ISO9001 accredited processes, meaning every laptop has a complete inside-and-out refresh - guaranteeing consistent premium quality with every laptop.

Covered by our return to base warranty

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.

CASE STUDY:
Bristol City Council

For several years now, Bristol City Council have been using remanufactured laptops as part of their IT infrastructure, with the majority of employees using ICT solutions daily.

However, technology is a big contributor to CO₂ emissions in the production phase. Bristol City Council's challenge was to maintain the required operational levels while not contradicting the Green Capital remit, or compromising the user experience.

There was also the concern of cost – particularly when spending public funds, it is imperative that purchases represent the best value.

“Of course environmental commitments are at the heart of all decisions here at Bristol City Council, so it is fantastic that we have sourced machines which are environmentally sound as well as being fit for purpose. [...] Remanufactured laptops also represent a substantial saving against brand-new products.”

Henry Stiles, Lead End User Computer Specialist at Bristol City Council

Providing social value through IT

The way we address procurement for the public sector, much like the rest of our company, is based within the circular economy and with one thing in mind: sustainability; without compromising quality.

With Circular Computing's unique remanufacturing process, when you want to upgrade or change to newer machines, we can take back the previous products to begin the remanufacturing process all over again.

Our remanufactured laptops are certified carbon-neutral, helping reduce your organisation's carbon footprint and contribute towards the UK's Environmental Bill of net zero by 2050' and can be included in an organisation's Scope 3 report.

We also invest into reforestation, carbon reduction and clean energy projects that create significant social value, in-keeping with environmental policies that pass on to your organisation.
