Our latest circular economy consulting work
Exponential demand for critical materials, driven by the energy transition, may trigger supply chain problems. Circular economy business models could help decouple the renewable energy sector from material consumption. However, facing major economic, regulatory and financial barriers, the transition of the sector towards a circular economy still has a long way to go. In our report for the Green Purposes Company, we propose an action plan for the renewable energy sector to be fully aligned with the principles of a circular economy and reap its benefits.
The report has be launched in Parliament on 21 February in partnership with cross-party think tank Policy Connect, with Under Secretary of State at the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, Lord Callanan, making the keynote address.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, circular economy helped hospitals face supplies shortage. Can it help businesses face the worst recession ever?
Reverse logistics, the circular economy weakest link
Reverse logistics is sometimes described as the logistics going in the “wrong direction”. Yet it plays an important role to transitioning to a circular economy.
For factories, applying circular economy strategies could create cost-saving opportunities as well as profitable new revenue streams.
Toward factories with no assets
Today, many factories are using energy service companies to improve their energy efficiency.
Tomorrow, they will very likely buy pay per use services to improve their resource efficiency.
Waste + Information = Resource
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 machines that predict the future
Thanks to predictive maintenance, products 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.
Making products last
Thanks to remanufacturing, refurbishing and repair, products are not just consumables anymore, they become assets, our assets.
Alternatives to plastic
There wasn’t a lot of alternatives to plastic. Until now.
To improve material efficiency, purchasing departments could leverage circular economy.
Creating jobs, saving ressources
For decades, companies have improved labour productivity to reduce their costs. But, they should rather focus on resource productivity, and create jobs.
Reducing hospitals cost
Unlike many other sectors, hospitals have not yet fully optimised their production resources. But that can change.
Fixing broken supply chains
By implementing circular economy strategies, businesses could build more resilient supply chains
