Resource-efficient business models
By developing more resource-efficient business models, we see that we can contribute to society’s shift from a traditional linear approach to manufacturing, use and waste - toward a more circular economy.
We are working to identify and evaluate new business opportunities that contribute to a higher degree of resource efficiency.
Our growing sales of spare parts and repair service, which are available in all markets, means that we are extending the lifetimes of our products. We also help customers to reuse products, for example, by collecting and recharging deposits for ink cartridges.
We are carrying out and evaluating pilot projects, such as installation and tool rental, to define relevant targets.
How we work
We prioritize and evaluate project initiatives based on investment needs, complexity, risks and resource consumption in relation to potential return and repayment period. When this is done, the prioritized projects are included in our overall project planning. We will further focus on this forward.
