Circular Economy

The circular economy aims to reduce or avoid waste by recycling or repairing existing products. In the ICT industry, this often refers to electronic equipment that is refurbished and reconditioned for reuse.

The circular economy is a particular advantage of rental models for electronics, which are currently gaining in popularity.


Our refurbishment company Webinstore has been around since 2004 and is part of ALSO Germany since 2013. The focus of the work is the preparation and marketing of hardware. In addition to electronic goods that are returned to the seller within the 30-day right of return, this also involves devices that are returned at the end of their first life cycle, i.e. after use, e.g. as part of an as-a-service contract. In this way, we are making an important contribution to responsible resources and support our partners in acting in a sustainable manner.
