The Royal Mint has agreed a deal to help decarbonise its IT estate by using remanufactured laptops from Circular Computing.
The unique Circular remanufacturing process sees Circular Computing produce second-life laptops that are certified equal to or better than new by a world’s first BSI Kitemark. Following a successful trial, the agreed partnership will see The Royal Mint use Circular Computing carbon neutral, remanufactured Lenovo ThinkPad T480 units, designed to meet its specific IT needs while allowing for a flexible procurement approach. Over 70 remanufactured laptops have already been delivered to The Royal Mint, with further deliveries set to take place later this year.
Simon Edwards, Head of IT Operations at The Royal Mint said: “Sustainability is core to the long-term future of The Royal Mint and our technology function is challenged with delivering sustainable computing for our employees. We teamed up with Circular Computing and ran a trial of their sustainable laptops to see if they would be a fit for our needs.”
“Not only do the remanufactured laptops meet our demanding specifications, they also have premium appeal – from the packaging they arrive in to the quality of the devices themselves. They also come with extended warranty options which made it an easy decision to move to Circular Computing.”
