Circular Economy & 
Lifecycle Thinking

By offering a suite of advisory services encompassing lifecycle thinking, life cycle assessments, circular economy strategies, waste baselining, resource optimisation, and product stewardship, we empower clients to make informed decisions, obtain certifications, develop sustainable policies and strategies, and establish effective waste management programs.

Our global economy is only 7.2% circular. To bring human activity back within the safe limits of the planet, we need to reduce global material extraction and consumption by one-third. – Circularity Gap Report. Achieving this goal demands a fundamental shift in how economies and organisations approach resources extraction, product design, operations, and end-of-life solutions.

Our Circular Economy & Lifecycle Thinking services employ scientific analysis to guide our clients in transitioning from a linear take-make-dispose economic model to a comprehensive, systems-level circular approach. This transformation unlocks cost savings, new revenue streams, and enhanced stakeholder engagement, propelling them towards a sustainable and profitable future.

We deliver circular economy, resource optimisation and lifecycle thinking services to corporate entities, large to medium privately owned organisations, government agencies and not for profits. Our sector experience includes building and construction, FMCG, infrastructure, property, financial services, insurance, and manufacturing.
