Did you know that the IT industry contributes over 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions? Organisations are becoming more aware of how everyday activities affect the environment and the actions they need to take to reduce their carbon footprint. If you work for an organisation that wants to reduce its carbon footprint, enabling an IT sustainable procurement strategy will significantly contribute to your environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria without compromising its requirements.
At Espria, we fully appreciate and understand the need for laptops and technology; however, we do not know why businesses throw away perfectly functional laptops simply because they are a few years old and the warranty has run out. 70% of these devices could be reused, refurbished or remanufactured, all of which helps to cut down on the production of new devices and usage of raw materials.
Why use Remanufactured Laptops?
Firstly, what is so special about a Remanufactured laptop? Remanufactured laptops go through an extensive 5+ hour remanufacturing process and 360-point quality checks to deliver unrivalled quality and consistency you can rely on. All parts that are not defective are reused, and the device is rebuilt and refinished inside and out, while any damaged components are replaced or upgraded.
Finally, all devices are remanufactured to BS 8887 standards by fully-qualified technicians in a purpose-built state of the art production facility. The ISO9001 accredited remanufacturing processes mean that we can guarantee consistent quality of the same model in large volumes, and with comprehensive cosmetic detailing, every laptop is refinished to exacting quality standards. All devices come with a one-year replacement warranty which can be extended to three years together with a one year warranty for the batteries, giving you peace of mind.
The Environmental Benefits of Remanufactured Laptops
Many organisations are looking at becoming Carbon Neutral, and restoring your IT equipment is a great way of contributing to protecting our planet. The resources needed to build a laptop from scratch are vast, and the IT industry must work harder to ensure that our e-waste is dealt with properly, such as through legitimate recycling centres for reuse or repurposing. All our remanufactured devices are certified Carbon Neutral, and we plant five trees for each laptop delivered. It is estimated that every laptop reused saves 1,200kgs of waste and 190,000 litres of water compared to purchasing brand new.
Those businesses who have pledged to achieve net-zero and other environmental initiatives can put forward, in confidence, remanufactured laptops as a way of reducing their carbon footprint and e-waste for their organisation. Not only that, but having purchased your device, we can take the product back when you are finished with it so that we can begin the process all over again. If you would like to find out the positive impact you could make by switching to sustainable IT, then why not use a sustainable IT Calculator like this one.
We have seen in recent months a scarcity of devices and rising costs for IT equipment. This, however, doesn’t need to become an issue for you. Espria & Circular Computing offer consistent availability of computing equipment that can cost 40% less than purchasing brand new. On top of that, we can help meet your environmental goals, whether becoming Carbon Neutral or simply doing your bit for the environment.
