Reduce your carbon footprint and make significant savings on refurbished IT equipment.
In the ongoing efforts to establish a circular economy of reuse, recycle and reduce for IT equipment and devices, reuse can be overlooked. As the world begins to shift towards environmental sustainability the fact is reusing IT equipment is one of the most effective ways to reduce carbon emissions.
Buying refurbished IT equipment creates less electronic waste helps to save the planet and save you more money. According to *(2019 Sustainability Report) reusing a laptop can result in a 36% reduction in CO2e.
For example, comparing the 300kg CO2e for a new laptop the carbon footprint of a refurbished laptop is 75kg, that’s equivalent to a reduction of 75%. You can significantly reduce carbon emissions if you buy refurbished IT equipment.
