The wheels of a Circular Economy go round and round – N°2 The automotive sector: ready to step up a gear

December 13, 2021

The automotive sector has known a deep transformation over the last two decades. First, because the EU legislation has pushed automakers to better treat end-of-life vehicles by imposing high recycling, reusing and recovering rates. Secondly, because the fight against climate change and the rise of electrification are questioning the whole business-model and thus, companies have to reinvent themselves.

We will see that because of these two reasons, the sector is quite in advance on Circular Economy and that the subject is well taken into account in their business strategy. Besides, design – as being a crucial step for the sector – has already moved to eco-design by taking into account environmental considerations to facilitate the reuse or the disassembling of cars. However, we do think that if companies have built strong foundations that could allow them to expand Circular Economy faster, companies need to develop partnerships with suppliers so that solutions are co-designed if they want to make it real.
