With a growing legislative push towards circularity and benefits in terms of staff attraction and retention, investment and turnover to companies who can display good sustainability credentials, more and more companies in the data centre sector are interested in adopting circular economy practices.

It also identifies the best use cases for refurbished components and remanufactured machines.
