there may only be 10 years left until we exceed the ‘’limit’’ of carbon emissions, and global warming can no longer be limited to 1.5 C

What is Circular Economy?

The aftereffects of a take-make-dispose attitude present a worrisome future for the planet. We cannot afford to further exploit the finite natural resources to meet infinite needs of the ever-growing population.

All of us, ​employees & citizens, public & private institutions, companies & households, ​have the responsibility to contribute​.

The Circular Economy allows us to look beyond a disposable mindset. It provides us with the tools to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, diverting and revalorising waste and relieving the pressure on natural resources.

From an industrial perspective, the Circular Economy is an opportunity to run a business profitably while staying within the planetary boundaries.

Why does it matter for your business?

Incorporating circularity helps industries to be well prepared for the supply shocks due to unavailability and increasing costs of raw materials. It helps a business in positively contributing towards combatting climate change by reducing its resource intensity thereby carbon intensity.

 

Meanwhile, increasingly stringent legal policies  in the EU as well as changing consumer patterns accelerate the push towards a more sustainable world . A circular economy is therefore more than just a move towards increased recycling, it’s a framework that redefines the daily operations of industries towards decarbonation & a climate neutral future.

eolos relies on an engineering framework & science-based methodology

For companies who want to explore opportunities to increase their environmental sustainability performance we co-develop and embed those solutions, with at the core of it our 10R Framework, inspired by research from the University of Utrecht and namely Prof. Walter J.V. Vermeulen
