Circular Economy of the Year at CRN Tech Impact Awards

At Techbuyer we make it no secret that we are strong advocates for the circular IT economy and so we are delighted to be named Circular Economy Company of the Year at the CRN Tech Impact Awards 2022!  

Techbuyer joined the list of 2022 winners, alongside big names in the tech industry, such as Softcat, who were celebrated for contributions towards creating a more sustainable IT industry. We are proud to have been recognised amongst larger companies within the sector for our work in the sustainable disposal, purchasing and maintenance of IT equipment globally. 

The CRN Tech Impact Awards are a celebration of sustainability, circularity and environmental best practice, rewarding companies for their sustainability projects and performance on a yearly basis, and we were extremely proud to take home a win from this prestigious event.

The awards are hosted and run by CRN, the leading supplier of news and information for technology solutions providers, IT channel partners and value-added resellers. 

As a provider of sustainable IT solutions, championing circularity and the circular economy are key aspects of our business. We are committed to reducing the amount of valuable devices, components and material from ending up in landfill and work to extend the lifespan of technology, keeping it in use for longer. Because of this, we are extremely proud of our team receiving recognition for the work they do in advancing the circular economy within the IT industry. 

Judges announced that Techbuyer won “plaudits for using academic research to challenge the notion that new is best. The judges agreed that it is a true circular economy champion with an offering extending well beyond just disposal.” 

Circular Computing were highly commended in the Circular Company of the Year category thanks to the fantastic work they do promoting sustainability within the computing industry. 

The circular economy allows for materials, devices and products to be used to their full potential and prevents valuable resources from ending up in landfill. Techbuyer is a leading specialist in refurbished IT; we refurbish components and remanufacture devices to keep valuable IT and materials in use for longer. The technology we provide is refurbished to a high quality and performs as well as new.  By refurbishing IT to a high standard, our business is able to fuel the circular IT economy by extending the lifespan of technology and Critical Raw Materials. 

The circular economy is essential for creating a liveable future for our planet. Find out why we believe in the circular economy in our recent article here.
