How to increase the lifespan of products and identify materials or parts of highest value and make them suitable for re-use, refurbishment, and recycling. Aiming to lower the usage of raw materials, and CO2 footprint.
Dutch property developer Delta Development Group (DDG) and Mitsubishi Elevator Europe (MEE) teamed up with professionals from KPMG in the Netherlands. They used KPMG’s True Value methodology, which quantifies environmental and social impacts in financial terms, and applied it to Mitsubishi’s elevator leasing concept, M-Use. The study compared a leased Mitsubishi elevator with a typical office elevator (6 floors, Usage category 4) in the Netherlands over a 30 year period. The results showed than leasing rather owning elevators makes sense from both a financial and societal value perspective.
