Sailors for Sustainability: Darwin’s Beagle Voyage Inspiration Source

Sailors for Sustainability (SfS) is formed by Dutch sailors Ivar Smits and Floris van Hees who will chronicle their sailing trip around the world in search of sustainable solutions and examples of circular economy thinking. The goal is to inspire their followers with positive cases while raising awareness of the urgency of sustainable change. Using renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy, they will travel sustainably. Finch & Beak is involved as a partner of the project to share the insights gained by SfS to inspire sustainable business transformation.

Jumpstarting Your Circular Economy Program

Changing from decades of linear thinking into circular is hard; where to begin and how to follow through. Fortunately some bright circular economy business models have already emerged from existing know-how. What to think of a beer brewer that adds yeast to his wastewater to ensure a better fermentation thereby producing more biogas and cleaner residual water. Or a wine maker that is looking for ways to make good use of his vine cuttings by experimenting with solutions such as “biochar”; producing charcoal in the orchard and adding it to the soil to make it more productive.

Opportunities from the New Plastics Economy

Plastics have become one of the omnipresent materials in today’s economy. Its usage has skyrocketed in the past half-century, and is predicted to double again in the upcoming two decades. While plastics, and particularly plastic packaging, can have a prominent role in a more sustainable society by increasing efficiency, the current plastics economy has important drawbacks. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation has therefore launched the ‘New Plastics Economy’ initiative to turn these drawbacks into opportunities – in alignment with the principles of the circular economy.

Circular economy is seen as a demanding change. Due to natural resource constraints, corporations are more inclined to move from a traditional, linear approach towards a circular one. But, as with all business transformation processes, not design or theory but execution is the hardest part. How can one move from an existing linear business model to a more circular one?
