Sustainability as a business model
The economy of the future will be a circular economy. An economy in which products are manufactured as environmentally friendly as possible, used for as long as possible and recycled as completely as possible. The global used machinery trade is already making an important contribution to achieving this goal of a circular economy.
Every used machine sold on surplex.com saves considerable amounts of CO2 and raw materials compared to new production. With around 55,000 machines and operating equipment going under the hammer every year, the CO2 reduction amounts to around 1,300 t annually - a considerable sustainability factor! We help to ensure less waste and more reuse. Our auction platform even breathes new life into old machines. On the world market, there is a sensible use for almost every product.
In this way, we help buyers and sellers to achieve their sustainability goals as well. The sales process itself is also becoming increasingly contactless and low-emission thanks to our services. When machine sales are perfectly prepared and smoothly handled, many trips around the globe can be avoided. As a result, not only buyers and sellers benefit, but also the planet.
Values for a better world
Environmental sustainability is a key aspect of our corporate responsibility, but not the only one. It also includes dealing fairly with our business partners, contributing to economic prosperity and respecting our employees. Surplex pursues these values consistently. They are a central component of our » mission statement.
