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

We are a circular economy consulting firm. We help clients to map the benefits and capture the value of the circular economy.

In a circular economy, business models are resource efficient. Therefore, they improve the economic and environmental performance of businesses. According to the European Commission, circular economy could save business the equivalent to 8% of their annual turnover.

To help our clients capture the value of these circular economy business models, we follow a practical 3 steps approach.

We help our clients exploring the benefits of a circular economy using a robust methodology. Often, we can identify opportunities during half a day workshops.

We deliver trainings to build our clients capabilities. Our training program features three modules that can be customised to our client needs. We also deliver specific trainings on alternative to plastic, circular sourcing, etc.

Business model design

We use several tools to help our clients identify, qualify and prioritise circular-economy business models.

Circularity indicators

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

Circular sourcing

We have identified and qualified the 5 main sourcing strategies leveraging the circular economy. By improving material efficiency, these strategies reduce costs and environmental impacts.

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.

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

Digitalising material flows

The power of digital technologies to enable 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, by closing the loop of product lifecycles, it plays an important role to transitioning to a circular economy.

Waste watchers

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.

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

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.

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. 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.

Circular sourcing

To improve material efficiency, purchasing departments could leverage circular economy.

Creating jobs, saving ressources

For decades, industrial companies have improved labour productivity to reduce their costs. Today, 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.

Ending e-waste

Ending e-waste

Electronic and electric equipment manufacturers are amongst the world’s most innovative companies. But so far they’ve taken little advantage of their unique capacity to adopt circular design approaches.

Fixing broken supply chains

Supply chains were very efficient. Until now. By implementing circular economy strategies, businesses could build more resilient supply chains
