Lifecycle Extension

For a better world

Extended Lifecycle Management

Company laptops tend to be replaced by new ones every three to four years. But did you know around 1,200 kilos of mined metal-containing earth and almost 200,000 litres of water are used to produce a single laptop?

The productive lifespan of well-designed modern devices is seven years. So, let’s change the way we manage laptops and other digital devices for the greater good.

Extending the lifecycle from three to seven years is an economic, social and environmental win.

Extending the lifecycle beyond three or four years makes perfect sense, considering 80% of the carbon footprint is related to production. Each extended year is near net zero for our planet.

Maintaining, refurbishing, repurposing and remanufacturing is what we do. We have one keyword: happiness. It’s about happy co-workers, customers, citizens, climate and compliance.

And because it’s also more economical, we’ve added a sixth C to the equation: happy cash flow to cover the reduced of the total cost of ownership (TCO).
