The hardware is completely remanufactured and tested to BS 8887 standards by a trusted, Kitemark certified business.

Martin Brelsford, business development manager at Holker, said: “The Circular Computing remanufactured laptops are ideal for environmentally aware businesses and schools who want to reduce their carbon footprint without impacting on the performance of their technology.

“The hardware is ideal for general office users and pupils but comes at a fraction of the cost.”

Holker, who have also just taken delivery of their first electric vehicle, have also taken steps to make their offices more environmentally friendly. Not only have they fitted their offices with LED lighting, but Holker is also having two electric charging points installed for staff and visitors.

Holker also work with fellow Burnley business Recycle IT, a hardware recycling company passionate about electronic waste reduction.

Luke Doneghan, sales director at Circular Computing, said: “Congratulations to Holker and its customers who have helped to lower CO2 emissions by 133,200 kgs through the purchase of 222 remanufactured laptops.

“The Circular Computing initiative not only reduces carbon emissions, but also supports clean energy projects, boosting local economies, protecting woodland and helping to cool the Earth, all without asking the end customer to compromise on their IT requirements.”

Martin said the company has pledged to further support to improving Holker’s green credentials.

“We are delighted that 1,110 trees have been planted on behalf of Holker and our customers – but we’d like to take a step further. We will plant a tree for every five Circular Computing devices sold on our premises, or on the premises of our customers.”

A planting day will take place later in the year at their Network 65 headquarters.
