Societies change from linear to circular

This economy has reached a critical point where it is destructing more than creating value. Criticism is growing loader and loader, also in more conventional circles e.g. COP21 Paris 2015 or WEF Davos January 2016.

7 evolving trends

Circularity translated in strategies and new business models supports creating value for the organization now and in the future. Seven evolving circular trends are brought together under the umbrella of the WEconomy. 

These trends enable organizations how to deal with sustainability as a strategic issue.

They are translated into the WEconomy Index: a self–audit tool providing insight in how sustainability is addressed in your company.

Explaining video about the circular economy

In the video below, Professor Jan Jonker explains the inspiring movement of Iconomy to WEconomy and what can you do yourself today.

Jan Jonker is a man with a mission, and so in quite a hurry. According to Jan, we are too slow on our way to a sustainable society. As a professor of sustainable entrepreneurship he is primarily engaged with business models that enable sustainable development.

The logic of creating circular value

The logic of creating circular value is: ‘The economic objective of the functional economy is to create the highest possible use value for the longest possible time while consuming as few as possible material’.

The core value in the circular economy is based on a number of principles

  1. use raw materials / equipment as carefully as possible
  2. and use or reuse the materials and equipment as long as possible
  3. the service (performance) will replace the product
    and if things are really at the end of their livestyle
  4. the raw materials can easily be reused as feedstock
  5. this creates a new generation of business models based on closed cycles (closed loops).

    Hi there, thanks for sharing this useful information. Would you please give me a new website link for me to download the self-audit tool? It is no longer on your posted website. Alternatively, would you be able to connect me to the Radboud University Nijmegen? I am very interested in using this self-audit tool to assess our organisation’s circularity rate and identify gaps for improvement. Thanks so much for your help!
    Best regards,
