VIP Interview: Growth of the Circular Economy: The Next Business Revolution
Sharing Platforms and the Emergence of the New Consumer
In developed economies, up to 80 percent of the things stored in a typical home are used only once a month. The Sharing Platform model – increasingly assisted by new forms of digital technology –forges new relationships and business opportunities for consumers, companies and micro-entrepreneurs, who rent, share, swap or lend their idle goods. Fewer resources go into making products that are infrequently used, and consumers have a new way to both make and save money.
Case Studies from Circular Economy Pioneers
Companies seeking the circular advantage will be required to develop new business models that are free from the constraints of linear zero-sum thinking. These business models enable companies to enhance differentiation, reduce cost to serve and own, create new revenue and reduce risk, while minimizing impact on the rules of resource supply and demand. We’ll hear examples of companies leading the way, generating resource productivity improvements in innovative and sustainable ways.
