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.

Sustainable Innovation to Solve the Plastic Oceans Problem

More Plastic Than Fish in Oceans by 2050. Join Our BeakFest to Help!

Plastic pollution is widespread. An estimated 10 million tons of plastic waste is added to the oceans each year; the equivalent of emptying one garbage truck of plastic into the oceans every minute. The situation might get worse: advocate for the circular economy Ellen McArthur predicts that in an unchanged scenario, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by 2050.

Chemicals and Circular Economy: 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?

The example of Novozymes shows that companies can turn this burden into a business opportunity by capturing the value that is harnessed in the abundance of data. Through big data techniques, peer-comparisons are made and the non-financial data is harvested and combined with market information resulting in clear prospects.
