CFA Trading (based in Poole), is one of Europe’s top IT refurbishment companies and are already helping to reduce the electronic waste in the UK, by repairing, auditing and erasing all data from laptops and PC’s and giving them a new lease of life and helping to keep them in the consumer market place. The UK produces 2 million tonnes of electronic waste per year, current estimates put the Global figure of e-waste at approx. 50 million tonnes.

The idea behind the new eco-trading estate is to help increase the renewable energy produced by CFA and to help with the challenges of reversing, or slowing climate change.

Leon Lindblad, CFA Founder says, “As part of CFA’s mission to further its own environmental credentials and to encourage other businesses to change their own processes, CFA is currently designing Dorset’s most eco-friendly trading estate, which they are hoping to start building in 2019.

We want to attract like-minded businesses who are also doing good”
