How to support corporate social responsibility through recommerce? 

Faced with the global challenges of climate change and loss of natural resources, companies are turning to innovative solutions. In this context, the concept of recommerce is emerging as a revolutionary force, shaping not only the way we consume but also supporting companies in their commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR). In this article, we will look at how recommerce is emerging as a key tool for business transformation, highlighting the practical benefits, market trends, and important steps companies can take for both financial and social success.

What is recommerce? 

Recommerce is a business model that involves reusing, selling, and buying used products. Unlike traditional second-hand stores, recommerce emphasizes the use of online platforms that facilitate the transfer, sale, and purchase of used items. Above all, recommerce aims to reduce waste by extending the life cycle of products.

Recommerce vs. disposable culture: who will win the battle for the planet?

According to the Global Circularity Report 2022, the impact of single-use culture on the planet is destructive, related to pollution, waste, loss of resources, and rising temperatures. Without countermeasures, climate change by 2050 could cause the displacement of hundreds of millions of people and catastrophic loss of biodiversity. While human activity is a major source of climate change, it is also in our hands to stop it. 

Recommerce, or trade-in used products, plays a key role in realizing the circular economy concept. This idea advocates that raw materials and products derived from them should be used, recovered, and put back into circulation as often as possible. This approach not only reduces the exploitation of raw materials but also effectively reduces waste, which aligns with the principles of sustainable development.

It is worth noting that the idea of a circular economy is gaining increasing recognition, especially among conscious consumers. Recommerce is therefore becoming not only an effective resource management tool but also a strategic element, allowing companies to actively contribute to the realization of a sustainable future.

What is the role of recommerce in corporate social responsibility? 

In the context of corporate social responsibility (CSR), the recommerce trend is becoming increasingly important. Companies are realizing that engaging in second-hand commerce not only has a positive impact on the environment but is also becoming a key component of their CSR strategy. Shifting to recommerce-based business models allows companies to manage resources more effectively, reduce waste and actively engage in environmentally friendly activities.

This is also indicated by a report compiled by Thredup, which illustrates the positive effects of recommerce on the environment. According to its results, trading in used products contributes to an impressive 86% reduction in waste and carbon emissions by 79% compared to buying new products. This proves that recommerce not only supports sustainability but also has a real, measurable environmental impact.

Practical steps in implementing recommerce in companies 

Implementing a recommerce strategy in companies using the SilentClicks tool is an important step towards sustainable and efficient inventory management. 

  1. The first step is a detailed analysis of your current inventory, which will enable you to identify areas where a recommerce strategy with the SilentClicks tool can bring the most benefit. In our experience, companies reap the most benefits by opting for recommerce, especially when selling items such as old laptops or other electronic devices. In the manufacturing sector, the effectiveness of this approach is particularly noticeable when disposing of backlogged inventory products.
  1. Use the potential of the SilentClicks tool to create innovative loyalty programs. Invite only selected customers or contractors to SilentClicks to take advantage of attractive sale offers, thereby building lasting relationships and strengthening loyalty. 
  1. Use SilentClicks to prepare attractive offers. Introduce products that can be auctioned off, such as end-of-collection, last pieces, or unique products, which will increase their attractiveness. This will help you minimize your backlog of inventory and generate additional revenue.

SilentClicks’s implementation history at an IT company 

A global IT company set itself the ambitious task of organizing effective internal auctions for its employees. However, to meet strict security standards, it was necessary to provide a customized and secure auction solution.

The company took advantage of SilentClicks, introducing an auction system that integrated perfectly with the company’s current infrastructure and met the highest security standards. This resulted in 100 successful auctions, enabling employees to purchase attractive laptops at discounted prices.

The implementation process was smooth and efficient, and SilentClicks’s intuitive interface enabled employees to quickly master the use of the system. The results exceeded expectations, as all the laptops were sold out, which not only boosted revenue but was also successful in terms of employee involvement in the innovative initiative.

Thanks to SilentClicks, the company recorded a significant increase in revenue, reaching EUR 25,000. This effect improved the company’s financial performance. More than 400 employees took part in the auctions, which testifies to their active participation in the initiative.

SilentClicks not only brought real benefits in the form of additional revenue but also helped the company effectively dispose of unused equipment while improving infrastructure efficiency. This story is an excellent example of how an effective recommerce strategy implemented through SilentClicks can improve financial performance and employee engagement in a global company.

Summary 

Supporting corporate social responsibility through recommerce is not only a step toward sustainability, but also an opportunity to shape a positive corporate image and actively engage customers in the idea of responsible consumption. Implementing practical steps, such as using SilentClicks tools, opens the door to a new era of business, in which efficiency goes hand in hand with a sustainable approach to the environment and society.
