Circular Economy

In a circular future, we maximize the use of materials already in the economy and reduce reliance on virgin materials. We do this by designing for longevity, making smart material choices, emphasising repair, reuse and refilling opportunities and establishing efficient recycling systems with robust end markets.

Recycling is part of a circular economy, but a circular economy is much more than recycling.

Our expertise includes –

  • Extended Producer Responsibility
  • Designing out materials upstream
  • Measuring and modelling the Circular Economy
  • Building a social license
  • Lease-back models – case study analysis
  • Behaviour change science
  • Policy and Legislation Gap / Discourse Analysis

Strategies for circular opportunities

We strive to quantify the economic, environmental, and social outcomes of circular opportunities to help our clients reap the highest value vis-à-vis cost, GHG emissions, water, and energy savings while building strong and interconnected community-business networks.

  • Agriculture and organics – includes urban farming and regenerative food systems
  • Energy – transport, wind and solar farms/microgrids, hydropower and other renewable technologies (including end-of-life recycling for critical materials)
  • Defence
  • Packaging – aligning with sustainable packaging guidelines and strategy development, reusable and refillable packaging strategies and policy advocacy
  • Business and Innovation Development
  • The Built Environment
  • Decarbonisation targets and actions in mining.
