Value Hill: How to maintain the value of a product for as long as possible
Circular economy is not a question of company size
According to the European Green Deal, 50 percent of climate neutrality is to be implemented by 2050 on the basis of the circular economy business model. For reasons of risk avoidance, it therefore makes a lot of sense to initiate initial approaches to a transformation today.
A transformation is particularly relevant for companies that:
want to strengthen the company's resilience in the procurement market and in their value chains for strategic reasons
are located in markets where prices for raw materials will rise in the future
derive a first-mover advantage for themselves in the circular economy business field
are subject to CSR reporting and want to improve their carbon footprint
want to fundamentally future-proof their existing business models
Narrow – Slow – Close:
The circular ecosystem
The design of a circular transformation is based on the development of innovative business models, procedures and processes as well as products that have the have the capacity to enable a circular flow of resources.
Our approach starts with the R framework, in which we implement the business model of the circular economy in three development steps.
The fourth building block of this development is the issue of effectiveness, in which the quality of the the quality of the resources used also becomes relevant.
Narrow – Save resources.
Slow – Increase the service life of products.
Close – Reuse resources and materials.
The Roadmap for the Circular Economy
Together with our network, we create an individual roadmap for you and accompany you during the transformation.
Increase the service life of products
Reuse resources and materials
How can I make products, materials, processes redundant?
How can the life cycle of a product be extended?
How can resources be fed back into the cycle?
Rethinking existing business models. E.g. renting instead of buying
How can the repairability of a product be increased?
If all approaches fail, how can resources be recovered through thermal recycling?
Dematerialization through resource efficiency
How can individual components be repaired to bring the overall product up to date?
How can resources from landfills be reused?
How can working parts of an old, discarded product be used in a new product?
How can discarded products or product parts be used in a new product with a different function?
The individual roadmap creates the framework for the broader strategy with the subsequent transformation.
We can call on specialists from our network for all »R's« in the R framework.
Our qualitative methods are designed to involve many of your employees - creating enthusiasm for the transformation process right from the start.
