Switching to reusable packaging

Switching to reusable packaging

Getting ready for the CSRD on resource use and circular economy

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) requires 50,000 companies in the EU to disclose data related to resource use and circular economy. What is ESRS E5, resources use and circular economy? How to prepare for the disclosure? And how we can help. Learn more.

We provide circular economy consulting services mainly to corporations, from a wide range of industries. We also work with territories and business associations. Our clients include:

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 materials industry needs to transition to a circular economy

The materials industry is a major source of CO2 emissions. To reduce these emissions, it needs to transition to a circular economy.

Digitalising material flows

The power of digital technologies to enable the circular economy.

Developing countries have not benefited from the linear economy. Can that change with the circular economy?

Remaining at the top of the political agenda

We asked the former European Commissioner for the Environment, Janez Potočnik, how can the circular economy remain at the top of the political agenda.

Could circular economy help businesses face the worst recession ever?

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.

Waste watchers

For factories, applying circular economy strategies could create cost-saving opportunities and profitable new revenue streams.

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.

Predictive maintenance

Thanks to predictive maintenance, products can forecast failures before they occur.

Circular molecules

The circular economy and digitalisation will be the two most important trends employed by Germany’s chemical industry as it moves towards 2030.

Thanks to remanufacturing, refurbishing and repair, products are not just consumables anymore, they become assets, our assets.

Plastic packaging

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

Circular sourcing

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

We offer proprietary tools and databases to accelerate and increase impact, such as:

Circularity indicators

Businesses need to define indicators to track their transition toward a circular economy. We help our clients set clear KPIs by choosing them from our repository of more than 100 qualified circularity indicators.

We use a digital platform to match waste supply from one industrial process with raw material demand from another. The platform leverages big data and machine learning technologies.

Reverse logistics maturity model

The model assesses the reverse logistics maturity level. It describes the characteristics of successful reverse logistics processes across multiple dimensions.

To help our clients design circular solutions, we designed the circular economy card game. Cards describe all the possible circular business models, circular products and circular ecosystems. View some cards (in French).

We have identified 5 business models that are generating resource productivity improvements.
