Key Learnings

Cyclability

Petrol-based compounds are not easily biodegradable nor inert in the environment, therefore are not suitable for a circular model in this case.

Transparency

Suppliers are keener to collaborate if they perceive they are contributing to innovate, understanding the importance of their role.

Systemic perspective

To achieve a successful circular business you have to include all stakeholders, from clients to end-users, collaborate and understand their needs and goals.
