Circular economy

Circular economy paradigm shift in global business

The need to reshore supply chains in a world seeing major energy market disruption suggests that moves towards a circular economy will accelerate.

Even without the pollution issue, it would make little sense for the world to continue spending $80bn-$120bn each year on producing single-use plastic products, which are then thrown away immediately after use.

The pandemic has confirmed that plastics are very valuable materials – but we need new locally-based business models to be created, covering the value chain from collection through processing, manufacturing (based potentially on 3D printing) and distribution.

Thinking ‘out of the box’ will likely create a goldmine for those innovative companies who focus on capturing the sweet spot in the new value chain, and rapidly scale the new business models across the main cities and towns in their chosen region.
