Buying new laptops has a bigger footprint than you think.

From the amount of resources used to CO2 produced, it’s staggering how much of an impact buying laptops has on the earth.
This multiplies when you’re a medium or large business that procures thousands of laptops for your employees.
The sustainable alternative to new is remanufactured laptops.

Together with our partners we help companies decarbonise their IT estate.

In order to promote a sustainable future, Outbound Hub and its partners embrace the need for change. In order to reduce the carbon footprint of discarding IT products, we collect, refurbish, and recycle old technology securely.

Environmental legislation and sustainability have come a long way since the introduction of the WEEE directive. The UK ranks fifth in the world for the volume of e-waste it produces per inhabitant, ranking among the most profligate producers of e-waste. Due to the shorter lifespan of consumer electronics such as laptops, tablets, and mobile phones, e-waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

You can significantly contribute towards your ESG goals by enabling a sustainable IT procurement strategy, without compromising on your IT requirements.
