  Appliances = Saving
      Appliances are a crucial part of societal resource efficiency, saving time, money, energy, water and preventing waste.
 Circular Material Flows
 The home appliance industry contributes to circularity by providing secondary raw materials back into many manufacturing material flows. Materials recovered from the home appliance industry are used not only in producing some new home appliances, but also in other products, sectors and industries.
 Balanced Approach
  In striving for a circular economy, there needs to be a balanced approach – taking into account the balance of not only material efficiency but also of improving energy efficiency, citizen welfare, consumer choice and affordability.
