Gate C is a consulting firm helping businesses to capture the value of the circular economy


Our services

We help clients mapping the benefits and capture the value of the circular economy. Because they are resource efficient, circular economy business models allow businesses to improve their economic and environmental performance. According to the European Commission, circular economy could save business the equivalent to 8% of their annual turnover.

For a global chemical company purchasing 8 billion € worth of products and service worldwide, we identified several circular sourcing strategies that reduced the TCO of several equipment by more than 20%.

For a packaging goods company, we delivered a one day course on alternatives to plastic to R&D, purchasing, packaging and marketing managers. We leverage hundreds of examples and cases studies.

For a retailer, we facilitated a half a day workshop on new business models for packaging.

For a chemical producer, we identified industrial symbiosis in order to sell chemicals by-products rather than to pay for their disposal. We leveraged big data technologies to identified local customers for these by-products.

For a global retailer, we assessed the reverse logistics maturity level and qualified improvement initiatives. We discovered that outsourcing collection would reduce reverse logistics costs by 30%.


Our capabilities

For a global chemical company We have identified and qualified the 5 main sourcing strategies leveraging the circular economy. By improving material efficiency, circular sourcing strategies reduce costs and environmental impacts.

We have designed a training on alternative to plastics for packaging. This training leverage hundreds of examples and cases studies.

Based on the analysis of hundreds of case studies, we have designed a robust methodology to implement successfully circular economy business models.

We use a digital platform to match waste supply from one industrial process with raw material demand from another, turning “waste into wealth”. The platform leverage big data, statistical data and machine learning technologies.


Our insights

Businesses have been making huge losses by failing to capture the value of industrial waste, but applying circular economy strategies, enabled by new technologies, could create cost-saving opportunities as well as profitable new revenue streams.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, circular economy helped hospitals face supplies shortage. Can it help businesses face the worst recession ever?

Reverse logistics is sometimes described as the logistics going in the “wrong direction”. Yet, by closing the loop of product lifecycles, it plays an important role to transitioning to a circular economy.

Businesses have been making huge losses by failing to capture the value of industrial waste, but applying circular economy strategies, enabled by new technologies, could create cost-saving opportunities as well as profitable new revenue streams.

To cope with the economic crisis and those to come, companies will have to build more resilient supply chains. They will have to design supply chains, probably shorter and more distributed, that reuse materials and components.

To maintain the value of materials and products in the economy for as long as possible, the circular economy needs to have access not only to waste, but also to information regarding said waste.

The time when flights were cancelled, trains were delayed and elevators broke down may soon be over. Today, products are able to predict their own future. Thanks to predictive maintenance, they can forecast failures before they occur.

The circular economy and digitalisation will be the two most important trends employed by Germany’s chemical industry as it moves towards 2030. These trends, according to the German Chemical Industry Association, will “fundamentally alter the way” the industry is working.

Remanufacturing, refurbishing
and repair need to be better supported by governments, businesses and, also, consumers. Thanks to them, products are
not just consumables anymore, they become assets, our assets.

There wasn’t a lot of alternatives to plastic. Until now.

Few purchasing departments are leveraging the benefits of a circular economy. Yet, for some purchasing categories, circular economy reduces costs, resources consumption and greenhouse gas emission.
