Circular Economy

Circular economy as a solution to the climate and biodiversity crisis

We are currently consuming natural resources beyond the earth’s carrying capacity. Resource scarcity is already visible in higher business costs and threatens the availability of raw materials in the future. A circular economy, where raw materials and resources stay in value chains for as long as possible, is a central key to the green transition and the climate and biodiversity crisis. Circular economy offers companies, municipalities and states opportunities for resource efficiency and new value creation – in addition to social and ecological benefits.

The change from a linear economic model to a circular economy requires new business models. We help to identify the possibilities of transitioning to a circular economy and to develop a new business based on it. We support the concept development of business models based on circular economy, as well as the commercialisation of innovations that promote them. We help develop processes that support the circular economy, minimize the amount of waste generated from operations, and increase resource efficiency.

Examples of our services: circular economy strategies and business models, circular economy guidelines, commercialisation of circular economy innovations, material flow analyses, circular economy potential and market analyses, development of maintenance, repair and recycling service concepts.
