A SUMMARY OF THE GOOD YOU ARE DOING
You are doing a whole world of good through deciding to buy this laptop instead of a new laptop.
Buying new laptops has a bigger footprint than you think. In fact, a Circular Computing remanufactured laptop produces only 6.34% of the CO2 compared with an average new laptop. That’s over 15 times less CO2.
This multiplies when you’re a medium or large business that procures thousands of laptops for your employees.
The sustainable alternative to new is remanufactured laptops.
For every circular computing remanufactured laptop, approximately 316kg of CO2 emissions are prevented by not buying new.
Over 190,000 litres of water is saved from being used for extraction, refining and production of one new computer and its components. For the average American, that is enough drinking water for over 700 years.
1,200kg of the earth’s resources are mined and consumed to manufacture the necessary materials to create each component of one new laptop. Remanufacturing prevents the consumption of these resources.
REVERSAL OF LEGACY CARBON EMISSIONS
We plant five trees for every laptop we sell to help compensate for the ‘embodied’ carbon emissions from its original manufacture and first three years of use.
The forests that you are helping restore will alleviate poverty through income diversity for the poorest communities, and restore soils, water and biodiversity.
We produce zero e-waste through the Circular Computing™ remanufacturing process.

Reducing the IT carbon footprint
5 trees are planted for every laptop purchased through our reforestation partners, WeForest and One Tree Planted. So far, we have planted 305,208 trees, which will help sequester and reduce the carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.
We also support social projects and solar, wind and clean energy projects that create jobs and continue to allow access to renewable energy - something the Earth sorely needs.
Remanufactured not refurbished - There is a world of difference
Every laptop goes through our BSI Kitemark certified Circular Remanufacturing Process. A 360 step, 5+ hour journey per laptop that "returns a used product to at least its original performance with a warranty that is equivalent to (or better than) new" as required by the BS standard BS8887-220 and BS8887-211.
