System and Services
How can you build a new circular business structure?
Current production systems are often linear from extracting raw materials, to production to the end sale to customers. This linear model restricts integration of reused parts, recycled materials, and a circular flow of consumption. New production systems should support a circular mindset that brings used products, packaging and materials into a closed loop system where all components are re-used into different components and production loops. In addition, there is a great value in re-thinking business models aiming at integrating new services and systems as for example renting and re-selling.
