Don't wade the waters to a profitable circular economy ALONE. 



In the least 2 years, there has been an exponential adoption of the circular economy into development frameworks, policies and regulations in many huge markets. Big business players are increasingly including it in business mandate while those in the financial sector with a asset-under-management totalling USD 18 trillion has also issued support to finance the transition to the circular economy. This is all great steps forward.


But the question remains: "Who will deliver the solutions?".

Every company, big or small, needs a whole ecosystem of solutions, vendors, suppliers and talent to deliver their transition to the circular economy.


Without the ecosystem, sustainable solution providers struggle to fight their linear economy counterparts on many fronts such as cost, customer appeal and regulatory traction. 

Without the ecosystem, companies that want to transition are faced with an overwhelming task of finding and empowering the right providers who appreciate, understand and can deliver the solutions needed to achieve their mandates. 

This makes standalone solutions extremely difficult for companies to make the transition to a circular economy, what more in a profitable and accelerated way. It'll take an entire ecosystem to change. And the world has done it before with 4G , geospatial, medical, smartphone developments. We can definitely do it again.
