Recompute, Technology and the Circular Economy

Posted by Team Recompute on 4th Apr 2023

The circular economy is a concept that has been gaining traction in recent years, particularly in the technology sector. It can refer to the idea of using sustainable computing practices to reduce the carbon footprint of the technology industry. With the exponential growth of the technology sector, it has become increasingly clear that we need to take proactive steps to ensure that our computing practices are sustainable and environmentally responsible.

At its core, Recompute is about rethinking the way we use technology. It means finding ways to use products that are built to last, with the ability to be upgraded, or repurposed, rather than being discarded and replaced every few years.

Recompute is not just about reducing our environmental impact, though. It is also about creating a more equitable technological future. By making technology more sustainable, we can ensure that everyone has access to the benefits of technology, rather than just those who can afford to upgrade to the latest and greatest devices.

As individuals and business leaders, there are many steps we can take to support sustainable technology. We can choose to buy refurbished devices, recycle our old electronics, and support companies that are committed to sustainability. We can also advocate for government policies that support sustainable computing practices and incentivise companies to prioritise sustainability.

We also need the technology industry as a whole to commit to sustainability and make it a priority. We need companies to design products that are sustainable from the outset, rather than simply trying to retrofit existing products with more sustainable features. We need data centers to be powered by renewable energy sources, and we need hardware and software to be designed with energy efficiency in mind.

At Recompute we only play a minor part in the puzzle but it builds on an essential concept that we must all embrace if we want to create a more sustainable technological future. Let us all commit to making sustainable technology a priority, and work together to build a better world for ourselves and for future generations.

If you are considering buying a new laptop or computer why not consider a refurbished option? At Recompute we only stock the best business grade models that are backed by industry leading warranty and sold for a fraction of the price.
