Please join this RIC sponsored webinar to learn more about this important report, Re-defining Value – The Manufacturing Revolution. Remanufacturing, Refurbishment, Repair and Direct Reuse in the Circular Economy, released by Dr. Nabil Nasr on behalf ofthe United Nations Environment Programme's International Resource Panel (IRP). 

The report introduces the overarching term, Value-Retention Processes (VRP), which describes manufacturing processes that retain value within a circular system (versus linear system) - and details the superior benefits of Remanufacturing. 

The report reinforces VRP benefits including cutting industrial waste between 80 and 99 percent; greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 79 to 99 percent; and strengthening existing markets and as well as assisting in identification of new market segments.
