CRITICAL RAW MATERIALS
Security of Supply and Ethical Sourcing
Security of Supply - Urban Mining
Why let the raw materials that you need disappear out the factory gate for you to buy again? Your customers have them, and why not get those materials back from them for a refurbished or remanufactured product. That is customer loyalty and repeat business.
Where do your raw materials come from? Were they sourced ethically and is there a clear line of custody? Is your brand at risk to unknown risk?
'Cradle to Cradle' should you be using someone else's waste as raw material and saving cost? By creating closed material and energy loops within supply chains reduce the cost of environmental impacts and waste generation throughout the whole product life-cycle.
