Circular IT is the future
Within the Mutonic platform, you can find many ways to transition to the circular economy with your IT purchasing. Here we list 5 ways to reduce your CO2 footprint when purchasing IT. Reach out to one of our representatives to learn more.
Make your products last longer – ‘Reduce, reuse and recycle’ rather than ‘take, make and dispose’.
Get the right sparring partner with your purchases and service levels to ensure a longer lifespan for your purchases.
The Mutonic database contains several hundred thousand refurbished product numbers that you can look up directly and purchase – or you can set them up as default products within your account.
Trade-in of used devices is a built-in function of our platform. You can have the advantage of earning a bit of money in your trade, or simply make it a part of your purchasing plan to always trade-in old equipment to help the circular economy.
As part of the Mutonic platform, you are given the advantage of purchasing and shipping locally in the country where you also need to deliver. This will massively reduce the CO2 emitted during shipping.
The Mutonic database can be set to show CO2 data for those clients who wants to keep an eye on their CO2 footprint. You can see both the CO2 footprint on individual products, as well as a calculation for when the products are traded back in.
Circular IT is when there is an economic model in place that aims to eliminate waste by reusing, repairing, remanufacturing, refurbishing, and keeping your devices longer in the circle and in the loop.
Technology companies today are constantly pushing for and looking to repurpose valuable metals and other elements from electronic devices that are no longer fit for purpose and using them to build new products.
We provide ways to access and embrace this way of thinking.
With 57.4 million tonnes of electronic waste in 2021, electronic waste is the world’s fastest growing waste stream.
A smartphone contains more than 62 different metals, 17 critical raw materials, and up to 5 different conflict minerals! During the production of a laptop, 1,200 kg of waste is generated. This has major consequences for the environment.
Up to 95% of the environmental impact associated with a PC can be traced back to production. It is therefore absolutely crucial that we are able to reuse and recycle either the whole unit or parts of it – so we ensure that important metals and minerals are used circularly.
