“Circular Economy: Success Factors For Businesses With Industrial, Technical And Durable Products“

Wednesday, May 9, 2018 03:00 PM Europe/London

TOPIC

  • For all the right reasons, there is a lot of momentum about the circular economy: potential benefits are sustainability improvements, reduction of supply and price change risk, lowering the cost of products, and new business models altogether. While it’s easy to agree with its principles of a regenerative and restorative economy, it’s harder to put things into practice. For existing or larger companies, transitioning to a circular economy model can be costly and feel impractical, as the infrastructure for returning products for reuse is lacking and different materials within a product can be difficult to separate.
CONTENT
  • How companies are applying the principles of the circular economy to their business.
  • How new competitors are emerging in traditional industries
  • New performance metrics
  • How to use CE to lock customers into your offer.
  • Understand the factors that defend your offer against competitors – and how to maximize them.
  • How Makersite can support your pathway to ‘circularity’ in practical stages – from data and tools to model material alternatives and waste reduction to expertise
  • for full business model transformation.

From aspiration to operation – What are viable, operational possibilities between marginal reduction of waste and full business model transformation?

 

Presenters

  • Gerrard Fisher, Makersite Expert for Circular Economy and Electronics. Gerrard loves working on waste reduction and full business model change – helping businesses create more value, profit, and stability by embracing the circular economy. His background is in manufacturing, business management, resource efficiency and circular business models.

How does it work?

Makersite is a data platform for collaborative product management. It brings together teams to design and create sustainable products. 

Makersite has Apps for specific tasks. There are currently more than 30 Apps available for business, compliance, health, and environmental evaluations.

Makersite was built on the largest Global Industrial Product Flows Database. It’s the largest database on what products are made of and used for.

The platform is constantly updated with costs as well as market, scientific, regulatory, and other data. Unlike other product management tools, Makersite instantly connects to opportunities, risks, costs, and impacts. 

 

How is it helpful?

Connected data and mission-driven apps helps teams innovate faster, buy smarter, and become sustainable. By removing friction between analyzing, managing, and reporting, teams move faster, and decision making is grounded in data. That makes it easier to achieve sustainability targets and commercial KPIs. 

 

Who is this webinar for? 

Design leads, Product Managers, CSR/Sustainability Leaders and Procurement professionals within retailers and loved brands, producers, manufacturers, and multi-stakeholder initiatives.
