A business built on sustainability

For us, sustainability is more than a must-have. It’s the foundation of our business.

After building a computer with second hand parts when he was 13 years old, our founder realised the value of using unwanted technology. It is this principle that moves us forward.

We started our business with a simple aim: to break the unnecessary 3-year IT replacement cycle. Technology today is often thrown away when it still has many years of life left in it. We think this is a waste of our planet’s precious resources – and your business budget. So we’re doing things differently.

Alongside our work helping businesses to implement more sustainable IT, we’re practising what we preach:
Since 2016, we’ve prevented more than 859,000kg of eWaste by extending the life-cycle of existing technology. We’re aiming for 1 million kg by the end of 2022, 5m kg by the end of 2025 and 10m kg by the end of 2030.
We benchmarked our business carbon footprint in 2020 and are working towards a 20% reduction before we reach 2023.
Our UK facility runs off solar power.
All of our packaging is reused or recyclable.

Even this website has been designed with sustainability in mind.

Are you ready to align your IT use with your sustainability goals?

Meet our Founder

Anthony Levy is the founder and CEO of the Circularity First Group.

Unable to afford a computer when he was growing up, Anthony chose to make one himself. Using second hand parts he built a machine that worked like new. And quickly realised the value of working with discarded technology.

Fast forward 14 years and he has helped change the behaviour of vendors and customers. He has delivered sustainable solutions to service providers, government organisations, and commercial customers across Europe, US and Asia.

And he has pushed back against negative perceptions of remanufactured technology. Shaping the future of the IT sector, step by step.

Anthony continues to promote the importance of the circular economy and its role in the IT industry. In fact, it’s never been more important.

Authorised remanufactured IT:

Going beyond industry standards

In 2017, the Remanufacturing Industry Council (RIC) developed an industry standard for the remanufacturing process, demanding that products should be ‘returned to a like new or better than new condition’.

We go one step further. Our technology is remanufactured by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), giving you the highest resilience and reliability of all sustainable IT products. Plus, the warranties and support you’d expect when buying new.
