Charlie Collett, Content Writer Jun 05, 2020

The IT industry is facing sustainability challenges. One example is e-waste, which is drastically increasing as equipment is sent to landfill far before its end of life. Another is digital transformation, caused by increasing demands for data which has a very real energy cost.

In order to contribute to industry leading sustainability research and targets, Techbuyer made a number of significant changes to its infrastructure. Our IT Director, Rich Kenny spoke to Circular about hardware configurations and refurbishment is the answer. Read the full article here.

  • In 2019, data centres used around 5% of global electricity, and this is expected to rise to between six and eight percent by 2024.
  • Refurbishment of existing technology is the only way that we as a world can meet the demands of expanding consumer consumption in the tech sector. Better configuration of hardware will also help to reduce energy emissions and electricity usage.
  • Many businesses simply aren’t aware that there are better alternatives on the market that can both save them money and have a significant positive impact of the environment.
  • At Techbuyer, we are contributing to the Global Goals in a number of ways including educating others about sustainable technology, donating refurbished equipment, and providing cost-effective and circular IT solutions.
