We help industries, cities and public authorities to identify circularity gaps, develop actionable plans and map the opportunities for the transition to a circular economy model.
A circular economy unlocks growth and development without turning our limited resources into waste. On the contrary, resembling the natural ecosystem, it keeps materials flowing and reintroduces them into the economy. In each value chain, multiple actors should work together to define new material loops, design new products and circular business models, while setting boundary conditions.
Our circularity approach covers all stages of a product’s lifecycle, from design to end of use. It requires design, technology, logistics management and business models to be tailored and considered as a system. We look at a broad range of supporting and enabling solutions in line with the waste management hierarchy: from big data, eco-design tools and methodologies for product and material design, recycling technologies to business models and life cycle costing, as well as tools to incentivise behavioural change.
We bring together all the actors of a material value chain to develop and implement the best transitioning strategy to slow, narrow and close resource flows, while taking into consideration all the synergies that exist in each particular ecosystem.
We connect clients with the right solution providers, from our expansive network that covers a wide range of sectors and areas, including material science, big data, robotics and environmental science. We are in close contact with many relevant stakeholders, such as cities, universities, SMEs and big players in the industry. We connect different parties that complement each other and we guide them in building solutions together.
We create tools to help our clients make better and more informed decisions. These tools can range from scenario planning to a lifecycle costs assessment.
We support public authorities and industries with assessments of production lines and financial models to accelerate the transition towards a circular economy. We arrange workshops and support the implementation of the transition strategy.
We identify with our partners the circular challenges of their products or systems with a focus on difficult material streams. We support the mapping of technological solutions and opportunities towards a circular product that already exist or currently are under development (technology readiness levels below 9). In these scouting studies, we look at the opportunities from an ecological and economic point of view.
The European Union aims to be #ClimateNeutral by 2050.
