Description

The network holds more than eighty member companies in and around Vienna, specialised in high quality repair services. The member companies have to meet defined criteria to ensure quality standards in repair services. The network members carry out more than 50.000 repairs per year, which corresponds to about 750 tons of waste prevented every year. The Repair Network Vienna was founded in 1999, and has since then been a pioneer in developing quality standards for repair services and highlighting the importance of repair and reuse for a sustainable and resource-efficient economy. The Repair Network Vienna is supported by the Executive City Councillor for the Environment and Vienna Public Utilities, the Municipal Department 48 (Waste Management, Street Cleaning and Vehicle Fleet) and the Municipal Department 22 (Environmental Protection). The Repair Network Vienna is a project of Eco Counselling Vienna.
