1 min read

Mitsubishi Electric UK has launched an end-of-life scheme for all air conditioning equipment, under which the return and disposal of equipment will be managed by its logistics partner Norbert Dentressangle (NDL).

The scheme is part of Mitsubishi Electric's green gateway initiative, an energy efficiency and carbon reduction programme. The take-back scheme offers collection and safe disposal of end-of-life air conditioning equipment, regardless of the brand. Allied to its UK distribution contract with Mitsubishi Electric, NDL is responsible for collecting equipment from customer premises and for the consolidation and onward transportation of this equipment to a number of recycling centres. NDL also manages the certification of the disposal process. Mitsubishi's head of supply chain management Michael Freeman said: "Norbert Dentressangle have proved themselves a valuable partner to Mitsubishi Electric, both through the existing distribution operation and their ability to take on and manage this additional activity. "As the market leader in providing heating, cooling and ventilation solutions for commercial and domestic buildings, Mitsubishi Electric recognises its responsibility to the environment – not only in terms of our own products but in helping to influence the behaviour of consumers of heating and cooling equipment. "In partnership with Norbert Dentressangle, our take-back scheme will continue to encourage recycling and support customers in their proper disposal of end-of-life equipment."
