As the world’s first remanufacturer of IT, Circular Computing’s mission is to change the way the world buys IT and create positive environmental, social and ethical impacts so we can all live in a better world with a brighter future.
Circular Computing have invested over €5 million in the world’s first purpose-built computer remanufacturing facility, that will extend the life of laptops by another 3 – 4 years. This circular business model is unique to Circular Computing. The company re-purchases these laptops every 3 years when they will re-join the remanufacturing process and be redeployed to other customers. In total, the company estimates three re-loop cycles and another nine years of useful life, which in turn creates enormous positive environmental, ethical and social impact. This is made possible due to the intensive 5-hour industrial remanufacturing and upgrade process that every Circular laptop undergoes, resulting in products that look and perform the same as new. They are backed with a 3-year advance replacement warranty, offering complete peace of mind.
Serious and committed about its plans, Circular Computing invests a percentage of its profits into high impact environmental and social initiatives in India and Africa. Working together with WeForest, a Belgian NGO, Circular Computing plants five trees for every laptop sold. This environmental and social commitment helps to mitigate climate change, create jobs and empower local communities to become more sustainable. Over 600Kgs of Co2 is sequestered by every laptop. This means Circular Computing laptops has a zero-carbon footprint for three years of use as well as having the original CO2 from OEM manufacturing reversed.
Firmly rooted in the circular economy and working exclusively with a network of partners who are all committed toward this shared vision, the company aims to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable future.
