Carbon Neutral Hardware
Let’s be realistic, right now there is no such thing as a vegan laptop, desktop, monitor or smartphone. Or indeed any electronic device.
Animal products are used in the production of numerous electronic components such as screens, batteries and circuit boards. We’re talking with manufacturers about this issue but these are spread across a global supply chain. Worse, it’s a chain in which there are currently no vegan certifications and little consumer awareness.
It is however impossible to run a modern business without any electronic devices and beyond the direct use of animal-sourced materials in electronics, we are also very concerned about their environmental impact.
The manufacture of these devices is energy-intensive and polluting. Over 80% of the lifetime carbon footprint of an electronic device happens before you even open the box.
We’ve teamed up with Circular Computing to offer carbon-neutral remanufactured laptops.
Circular Computing™ exists to create a more ethical, sustainable, and socially responsible way to buy enterprise-grade IT.
Their carbon-neutral remanufactured HP, Dell and Lenovo laptops deliver 97% of the performance of the latest models and up to 40% savings compared to brand new.
What Is Remanufacturing?
Every laptop is separated into individual parts, which are tested, cleaned and repainted. This delivers a product that looks and feels like new, without the carbon footprint.
- 97% performance of new models
- Save up to 40% on cost
- Up to a 3-year warranty
- Certified carbon neutral product
Through an extensive 5+ hour remanufacturing process and 300-point quality check, Circular Computing™ delivers unrivalled quality and consistency you can rely on.
The laptops are remanufactured to BS 8887 standards by fully qualified technicians within Circular Computing’s purpose-built state of the art production facility.
