Circular Computing launches new IT Asset Disposition programme

Provider says its new initiative will be the most sustainable ITAD programme of its kind

Remanufactured IT specialist Circular Computing has announced the launch of a new global IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) programme.

Designed to help ITAD thought leaders provide a planet-friendly solution to reduce their e-waste, the new initiative will be the most sustainable ITAD programme of its kind, the firm says.

Circular’s programme will enable customers’ e-waste to be turned into sustainable remanufactured devices, extending their life cycle by three years or more – all while guaranteeing “equal to or better than new” quality.

“We are delighted to be launching a programme that enables the pioneers in ITAD to deliver a more sustainable service while delivering against the increasing demand for sustainable technology,” commented Scott MacMeekin, CEO at Circular Computing.

“This is all made possible through utilising the benefits of remanufacturing to close the loop in IT disposal, alongside the added sustainability benefits the programme offers.”

The scale of e-waste continues to grow around the world, with UN research revealing that an estimated 160,000 laptops are disposed of every day in Europe alone. 70% of these could be re-used – but only 20% currently are.

At its core, Circular’s new initiative has four key aims: to extend the life of IT hardware, move towards zero e-waste, plant and grow five trees for every computer sold through the programme, as well as measure sustainability impact.

All of the remanufactured devices sold via the ITAD programme will be carbon neutral, the firm says, which will help businesses meet sustainability targets such as the Climate Change Act in the UK, as well as wider Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the carbon zero obligations set via the UN.

“By launching our own global ITAD programme, we have the opportunity to impart our sustainability expertise to further help the industry tackle the growing e-waste problem, said Steve Haskew, Head of Sustainability at Circular Computing.

“This expansion of our offering will allow us to reach a greater number of partners through the ITAD network, driving the transition to a circular economy and helping businesses meet the UN SDGs.”
