Green Supply Chain Strategy:

Add Electronics Repair and Refurbishment to Your Recycling Program


When products are returned, there are many creative ways for companies to maximize value of the returns while expanding their green initiatives. The simplest and most often implemented green supply chain strategy is recycling electronics and products when they have reached the end of their useful lives.Additional opportunities are often not as obvious, but can be very valuable with the assistance of an organization that specializes in returns management and electronics repair. For example:

  • The product no longer functions, however it still has substantial value in the harvesting of valuable, and at times, rare components.  These can be used in the refurbishment of the products or can be sold for maximum value.
  • The product is still fully functional and thus can be repackaged and sold as refurbished goods in a secondary market, thus adding additional revenue to the owners.
  • The product is no longer functional; however it can still be repaired/remanufactured and reused and/or sold in a secondary market, again at a profit to the owners.

Bottom line: Efficient strategies to refurbish, reuse and resell products and raw materials save money and increase profits while still benefiting our environment.
