The study furthermore questions the business enablers for remanufacturing with a view to proposing actions that could boost activity. It concludes that remanufacturing in the UK, driven by economics rather than environmental motives, is making a significant contribution to materials efficiency embodying substantial equivalent carbon savings. Remanufacturing has the potential for even greater contribution to sustainable consumption, and there are steps that all stakeholders can take to enable this.
Besides quantifying the financial and environmental impacts of remanufacturing, the report considers the barriers and enablers to expansion. In the light of this it goes on to recommend possible actions and opportunities for business and possible actions for RDAs.
