Computers are responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than chemicals, shipping or aviation.
To make every new computer you buy requires:
Average CO2e emissions – for 100 laptops that is as much as 8 cars produce in a year
Water is used – enough drinking water for the average person to last 700 years
Energy – enough to power the average UK house for 4-5 months
Of the Earth’s resources are mined and consumed
Cognition Cloud’s solution is simple
If you can continue to use your existing computers for twice as long – you displace the environmental impact by spreading it over a longer time frame.
We do this by moving computing power to the cloud. Ageing computers are repurposed with an alternative operating system. This allows them to be used for twice as long. They also consume between 22% – and 49% less power.
If you replace your computers every 3 years – then the embodied emissions from each computer amounts to 100kgs per year. Extend your replacement cycle to 6 years and you cut that in half.
How much CO2 can you save?
To get an idea of how much you can reduce your CO2 emissions for each extra year you continue to use your exising computers take a look at our calculator.
