Renova / circular business model


Renova is a service that deconstructs, buys, and resells pre-installed construction products and fixtures on its online platform to be used in new construction projects. It aims to reduce the waste generated on home and businesses renovations by salvaging products and connecting them with future users, turning waste into resource. In this context, products refer to all general fixtures, including the ones of kitchens, bathroom and lighting, as well as wood parquet flooring and engineered wood flooring.

The service is designed for the Brazilian context, considering the market opportunities and space to adapt to circular business models.
