We have performed many carbon footprints on remanufactured products from printer cartridges to gear boxes. Could developing a carbon footprint for your product help you show the environmental benefits of remanufacturing in your business?
The CRR has studied a wide range of different sectors. As a result we have developed a unique perspective on the remanufacturing landscape. Click here to find out more or contact us for information on how we can perform a similar study on your sector.
Find out more about remanufacturing. We have an extensive database of information from basic principles to macroeconomic arguments supporting the use of remanufactured products.
