The 2018 World Economic Forum (WEF) has once again shown promising sustainability developments, with multinationals, governmental representatives and academics emphasizing rapid change is needed to meet the requirements from the Paris Agreement.

Pricing negative impacts and designing them out through circular innovations could provide solutions.

Training: Accelerating Your Circular Economy Game Plan

Breaking down the $4.5 trillion potential of the circular economy and capture company-specific value remains a vital challenge for many organizations.

Change Agents for Circular Economy Business Modelling

Nowadays global sustainability professionals are thinking big. For instance, at the recent World Circular Economy Forum the gigantic €4.5 trillion business opportunity that the circular economy represents was addressed by presenters from organisations such as Sitra, WBCSD, IKEA and Novozymes. Nevertheless, making big ideas small enough to implement them into our daily business routine remains a sizable challenge – especially since circular economy success largely depends on a high degree of value chain collaboration.

Championing Sustainable Innovations in Energy Transition

In an era where global awareness for climate change and its impacts is more increasing than ever, Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement seems to conflict with recent global trends. Rather than following Trump’s withdrawal, national leaders from different continents are accelerating their efforts. One of the main focus areas to counter climate change is the roll out of renewable energy, with offshore wind as one of the sleeping giants.

Circular Economy in Chem: Materiality in Material Science

According to chemical industry association Cefic, the EU chemical industry’s share of world markets has seriously declined in the past 20 years. In 1995 EU industry sales amounted to €326 billion, representing 32.3% of worldwide sales. Two decades on, the EU chemicals sales have grown almost 60% but the market share has dropped to a meagre 14.7% in 2015. This “dilution effect” looks set to continue. Demand for chemicals is growing strongly in China, India and other emerging countries but slowly in Europe and North America, where Europe sells most of its chemicals. What can sustainable innovation contribute to this challenge?
