Remanufacturing is one of three pillars of the Circular Cars Initiative, a programme unveiled during the United Nations Climate Action Summit. Organised by the World Economic Forum and World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the initiative aims to reduce the automotive industry’s carbon footprint. EIT Climate-KIC, a European publicprivate partnership which promotes decarbonisation of business, is a partner. It says: “The initiative works towards transforming the industry through the lens of the circular economy and mobility-as-a-service. The joint partners have three focus areas: design for longevity through sharing and pooling concepts, improved materials management and advanced re-manufacturing.” Environmental services consultancy SystemIQ and car-as-a-service company LeasePlan are also involved.
