Waarom Circulaire IT

Why Circular IT?

The way we use IT today is no longer sustainable. By making IT circular, we keep equipment in use for as long as possible. And at the end of its lifecycle, the raw materials used in its production are recovered and reused.

Reduce resources, CO₂ and e-waste

Business laptops are usually replaced every three to four years. But did you know it takes around 1,200 kg of metal-rich earths and almost 200,000 litres of water to make a single laptop? So let’s change the way we treat laptops and other IT equipment to make for a better environment.

resources and e-waste

Extend the life of IT equipment

The productive life of well-designed modern devices is six years, but many companies replace them after only three years. 80% of the carbon footprint of a laptop is related to production.  Each year thereafter is practically carbon-neutral. So, extending the lifecycle of IT equipment to more than three or four years is a no-brainer. Prolonging it up to six years is a score for people and planet alike.

IT Lifecycle extension

Comply with EU and national legislation

Sustainability and waste management regulations are getting tighter, especially in the European Union. By making your IT circular, you not only stay compliant with the latest legislation, but you’re also ready for any future changes to the law.  No need to worry about potential fines, legal fees and reputational damage. It also makes you more attractive to customers and employees who are committed to sustainability.

Save costs

Circular IT is not only good for the planet. It’s good for your IT budget too. Extending your hardware’s life or reusing components means you get the maximum out of your initial investment. Circular IT is a win-win: reduce your environmental footprint and your operational costs at the same time.
