Our Approach

Developments in society and political landscape give us the option to connect issues we face with the topics that are being discussed. No fights though informing, influencing and convincing policy makers.

Extending life-cycles, repair and reuse are gaining as topics as elements of a circular economy. Where the focus was first on energy reduction this is now shifting to value retention, resource efficiency or more simply said; reduce the need for taking out too much raw materials from our planet. This should be arranged in an open system; not a range of eco-systems managed by manufacturers.

This is a change that will happen, so the experts in repair/maintenance, upgrading and reuse/resell are required: The independent service providers. Policies, laws and practices that would hinder this market to operate should be addressed to create freedom to choose by users/owners.
