- Conducted literature and market research to understand what factors contribute to the long-term operational sustainability of independent repair centres.
- Conducted an extensive internal audit of current waste streams which were analysed to identify alternate waste valorisation routes.
- Developed a circular procurement baseline criteria for their supplier and brand offerings to slow down material leakage loops within the industry.
