THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
By using resources more effectively, a circular economy aims to decouple economic growth from the use of natural resources and ecosystems. Creating a regenerative system in which resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimised by slowing, closing, and narrowing energy and material loops. This can be achieved through long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, remanufacturing, refurbishing, and recycling. This is in contrast to a linear economy which is a ‘take, make, dispose’ model of production.
Below, you will find resources to help you get a better understanding of the Circular Economy, as well as information about how we can help you and your organisation be more circular.
Circular Economy Compendium
Collaboration and the sharing of knowledge and resources is the most effective way to accelerate the impact needed socially, economically and environmentally. With that in mind, we have an ever growing compilation of resources including reports, whitepapers and more available free to view and share in both English as well as the Nordic Languages.
Technology is changing the way that cities, communities, businesses, NGOs and people access what they need. Understanding the impact of the platform and sharing economies and shifting to an access over ownership model can support a regenerative vs extractive economic solution that enables a transition to a Circular Economy
INNOVATING BUSINESS MODELS
The Circular Economy includes business models within a business, between businesses, within an organization, within an industry or in a place (city, region, country..) that focuses on ecosystems and circular circuits rather than linear processes.
Worldwide, industries are being disrupted and a move to an access over ownership model
requires cutting edge technology in order to make the transition.
We provide the insight and technology to enable traditional companies to find their niche in the new economy.
To increase resource utilization through smart solutions supporting a transition to a Circular Economy. Increased utilization of assets reduces overall consumption and creates positive economic, environmental and social impact. We actively work to change consumption habits and increase the understanding of the importance of access over ownership.
