The Circular Economy is an economic and industrial system in which resources are used for as long as possible. This typically involves businesses implementing a range of alternative business models, such as remanufacture. With the manufacture of Refrigerated Display Cabinets (RDCs) being a material and energy intensive process, there is scope for remanufacturing to support a more resource-efficient production of RDCs. Despite the potential, the remanufacture of RDCs in the UK is uncommon. Many Retailers and RDC Manufacturers typically have unfavourable attitudes towards the purchase and production of remanufactured RDCs. However, more favourable attitudes could increase their Behavioural Intentions towards the purchase and production of remanufactured RDCs, which could lead to the adoption of remanufacturing across the industry. This paper gives an overview of interventions that could be implemented to encourage Retailers and RDC Manufacturers to adopt the pro-circular behaviours. The three interventions discussed in this paper are: Financial Incentives, Quality Standards and Process-Supporting tools.
