Stellantis took centre-tage at Rematec trade fair, which ran from 27 to 29 June in Amsterdam, to promote its strategic Circular Economy activities, and particularly the SUSTAINera line of remanufactured products.

“Stellantis’ Circular Economy business is based on the 4R strategy: Remanufacturing, Repair, Reuse, Recycle. Reman is a central pillar of it, as it is aimed at extending products’ lifespans and providing a sustainable addition in the Company’s aftersales spare parts range", said Alison Jones, Senior Vice-President and Global Circular Economy head at Stellantis, who delivered a keynote titled ‘Remanufacturing - our industrial and innovative scale up' at Rematec’s conference program. “Stellantis is targeting Carbon Net Zero by 2038, a circular economy turnover of over 2 billion euros by 2030, and Remanufacturing is a key component to achieving these objectives.”

Stellantis also showcased two cars: the Peugeot e-208 in the battery corner with its high voltage battery that can be remanufactured; and the radical Citroën ‘Oli’  concept car at the SUSTAINera booth, an example of the Design for Circular Economy approach.
