Conserve resources, recycle, repurpose.

From the value chain to the value cycle. Global demand for mobility is growing just as our resources are shrinking. We are taking responsibility, severing the tie between our consumption of resources and the growth of our manufacturing output.

Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Parts

Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Parts are remanufactured under the same stringent quality standards as new parts, however they go beyond just being reconditioned, repaired or recycled. They enable a cost effective, sustainable repair of customer vehicles, assuring the same Mercedes-Benz standard of quality, reliability and factory warranty.

Remanufactured parts make a valuable contribution to the sustainability of our business model, requiring less energy and fewer raw materials compared with producing new parts. By reprocessing and reusing materials, we make our contribution to an environmentally friendly lifecycle.

Our aim is to avoid waste and the unnecessary consumption of raw materials and energy wherever possible - moving forward we want to succeed in continuing to add parts to the remanufactured portfolio to ensure we can maintain and further increase sustainability in this area.
