Resource efficient business model case study: incentivised return

Incentivised return of household electrical products

This case study looks at incentivised return of Electrical and Electronic Equipment, particularly the commercial opportunities presented by getting re-used electrical products back into the market place.

An incentivised return model works by a service provider purchasing used electrical equipment from individuals, refurbishing it and selling it on to new owners for a profit. This type of model is more resource efficient as it keeps electrical and electronic equipment in use for longer. It also encourages capture of end of life products for effective recycling.
