It’s also further recognition of the significant role we play in Cisco’s global initiative to responsibly repurpose or recycle end of use equipment to ensure that the technology that already exists, is used for longer.
Over the last fourteen years, Cistor has partnered with Cisco to keep technology in use for longer. As a key strategic circular economy partner in Cisco’s Refresh programme, we have utilised Cisco Refresh Technology in IT contracts around the world- including in Banks, the London Stock Exchange, International Service Providers, Government Departments, Universities, Businesses and Mobile Technology Companies.

Increasingly, we see organisations deep-dive into their environmental and social impact. The conversations we have with our clients is changing. Of course, organisations need technology to deliver continuity, to be secure, to be cost effective and to be resistant to supply chain challenges. However, the biggest change we are seeing is that organisations are now questioning how IT can align with their wider business sustainability goals such as eWaste, the circular economy and finite resource protection. Our Sustainability IT Consultancy offers support for organisations who crave this alignment.
Cisco Refresh provides our customers with the reassurance that the technology they are using is supplied with the same warranties and licences as new, and with the same SmartNet support. The bonus is that by utilising technology that already exists, our clients reduce eWaste and climate impact by not having to purchase brand new technology.
