MANAGEMENT FOR THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
POWERED BY THE BLUE CONNECTION
A circular economy and a circular supply chain are an alternative to our current linear economy where we take resources, produce, consume and generate waste. In circularity, a supply chain is designed to eliminate waste, and enable the recovery and reuse of all materials at the highest value possible at all times. Companies around the world are beginning to see growth opportunities in the circular economy, consumers are beginning to demand it, and a leading supply chain consultancy firm has placed the stake in the ground and said, “you better be into operating via circularity within the next 10 years, or you won’t be in the game any longer.
CONSUMERS ARE DEMANDING IT IN INCREASING VOLUME.
C LEVEL LEADERS RECOGNIZE THE NEED IS THERE AND IT CAN GROW NEW REVENUE THIS WAY. YET ONLY 9% OF LEADERS ARE MOVING THEIR COMPANIES IN THIS DIRECTION. A LEADING SUPPLY CHAIN CONSULTING GROUP LAST FALL EVEN WROTE THAT YOU BETTER BE IN THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY GAME IN 10 YEARS OR YOU'LL BE OUT OF BUSINESS.
