The aim of the Circle Scan is to identify opportunities for companies, financial institutions, governments or other organisations, to become more 'circular'. It is the first step in a journey towards circularity.With the Circle Scan, we take a system's perspective to identify the current impacts of a product, organisation, sector or region. Building on the six principles for a circular economy, we identify the leverage points for a real system change and create a future vision. This future vision allows business leaders to imagine their niche in a circular economy and develop a long-term, future proof business plan.
The Circle Scan process can be divided into four steps.
The Circle Scan is the first step in the ‘Full Circle’ Trajectory, Circle Economy’s methodology for work with members over a multi-year trajectory to enable them to realize, initiate, and implement circular opportunities.
The Circle Scan’s impact lies in identifying circular opportunities. We are currently setting up multiple pilot projects with our members based on new business models, new forms of cooperation, and new technologies that were first identified in Circle Scans. The Circle Scan is also a valuable communication tool for within organizations. Using Circle Scans, we have helped members such as governmental organisations [link] realise the power of systems thinking in formulating their regional or country level [cta link="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"]Enquire about Circle Scan[/cta]
