Cisco Refresh: Sustainability and the Circular Economy
Minimising environmental impact
What goes around comes around! The circular economy is an alternative approach to doing business that keeps resources in use for as long as possible and maximises their value. Once their service life ends, products and materials are recovered, regenerated and resold.
This is a key requirement for organisations with corporate sustainability directives in place. We will deliver the quality products you expect from us with a fully sustainable low carbon footprint.
Cisco Refresh delivers a genuine Cisco product with identical characteristics to those that have come through the new supply chain but have previously been sold by Cisco:
- Identical warranty
- Identical support options (e.g. SMARTnet)
- 100% authorised product
- Identical software licensing
- Identical finance package options
- Leveraging the circular economy, extending equipment life and reuse
Global problem solving for the planet
Cistor and Cisco seek out opportunities that minimise environmental impact in every aspect of our business and supply chain. And we seek ways technology reduces energy use and protects biodiversity.
Building products to last
Cistor and Cisco is committed to leading the future of circularity when it comes to designing and selling technology products. This means materials flow continuously within the economy, rather than being used once and discarded.
Cisco products are designed to be maintained and upgraded to extend their life. And, it’s easy and cost effective for customers to return their unused products instead of disposing of them. By reusing, refurbishing, reselling, and recycling returned equipment, materials are kept in circulation and out of landfills.
Certified remanufactured products
What’s good for the world is good for business. The Certified Cisco Refresh remanufactured program demonstrates a commitment to minimising environmental impact and this flows through to the end user.
With Cisco Refresh, you get the quality products you expect from a global leader with a fully sustainable low carbon footprint. This is a key requirement for organisations with corporate sustainability directives in place. We will deliver the quality products you expect from us with a fully sustainable low carbon footprint.
