CIRCULAR ECONOMY MARKETPLACE

Your waste could be somebody else’s start. This service aims to put you in contact with a start-up that needs your waste for its business. The database of start-ups is constantly expanding to differentiate the type of waste demands. At the moment, most start-ups I work with are based in Denmark, Italy and India.​
 

Raw materials are not infinite, the production processes often come with adverse impacts on the environment, including surface water and air for example. That goes for your supply chain too. Linking your business to a start-up operating in a developing country where your company sources from could be a good way of consistently and strategically linking your corporate social responsibility activities and programmes, or even better your Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) interventions.

 

Sustainable global production and consumption can positively contribute to the achievement of the SDGs, and not only the most obvious ones SDGs 12 and SDG 8 but the large majority of them given the environmental and social impacts of the circular economy. If you want to know more about how to link your business to the SDGs, please have a look at my Your SDGs service. Innovation and collaboration go hand in hand and that is what I can help you with: find the right partner!

INSIGHTS

Circular economy’s ideas are a great deal older than what we are prone to believe. I like to think of Heraclitus’ philosophy as the basis of it: “nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed”. If you want to know how the circular economy works, have a look at this video

In 2015, the European Commission adopted a Circular Economy Action Plan to minimise waste and have a positive impact on the environment and promote economic growth based on the circular economy model. Projections show that circular economy could increase the EU GDP and household income of 11% by 2030, as well as increase job opportunities.
