We know that we cannot afford to be a throw-away society and that we need to find better and easier ways of reusing the things we make and the resources we use in their production.
We have put in place a number of systems that are designed to extend the working life of parts and components, in some cases giving them new and different applications. For example we have an extensive parts remanufacturing operation and, at a global level, we are seeing hybrid batteries being retrieved from our vehicles and put to work storing clean, solar-generated power.
The reuse concept also applies to our mission to conserve water by using as little as possible and recycle any waste created by our production processes. Our attention to detail means that we even make sure the boxes in which our parts are supplied are designed for purpose and can be reused again and again.
