Repairing an item prolongs its life, reducing manufacturing and waste CO2e impacts.

Repair services are readily available for shoes, phones and computers.

In developed countries, the high cost of labour means that we leap to replace before considering repair for many items. So it's worth bearing in mind the durability, availability of spare parts and the length of the guarantee when buying things so as to prioritise repair.

It is difficult to quantify the carbon savings of some Actions. In this case we allocate a nominal 10kg CO2e per year. This is not reflective of the actual savings which may be significantly more, but to show that you are making a difference. If possible, we will provide representative calculations at a later date.
