The APSRG's newest report launched on Monday 8th December 2014. Written jointly with the All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group, the report lays out more than twenty recommendations for government and industry action, designed to ensure the UK seizes the huge social, economic and environmental opportunities presented by remanufacturing technologies.
The report follows an eight-month inquiry chaired by former Environment Secretary Rt Hon Caroline Spelman MP and Barry Sheerman MP, co-chair of both the APSRG and APMG. It lays out more than twenty recommendations for government and industry, warning that with the future of manufacturing ‘inextricably linked to environmental sustainability’, remanufacturing must play an increasingly ‘critical role’ in helping reduce the consumption of virgin raw materials and in exploiting new areas of comparative advantage.
