Driven by increased evidence of reaching planetary boundaries, technological enablement and changing customer attitudes, circular economy is becoming mainstream in boardroom discussions and on the political agenda. However, despite increased efforts by innovative businesses and foresighted policymakers, our current economy is still predominantly following the linear "take-make-dispose" model, which bears significant risks in terms of natural systems degradation, input price volatility and supply chain disruptions. In order to address these risks, keep the license to operate and tap into new value pools, businesses have to professionalise, speed up and scale the transition towards a closed-loop approach. Public decision makers have to continuously shape the right enabling conditions for this transition. QVARTZ helps clients across industries identify circular economy opportunities, develop coherent and ambitious environmental strategies and succeed in implementing these systemic change initiatives. Done right, circular economy offers a new framework for innovation and economic value creation.
