The urgency to embrace the circular economy has never been greater. The traditional, linear take-make-use-waste model results in value leakage at every stage of the value chain.

 

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), the transition to a circular economy could unlock a trillion-dollar opportunity. By redefining how you design, manufacture and operate within the circular economy framework, you not only contribute to a lower carbon footprint but also position your businesses for long-term success.

 

How can you make the circular economy achievable, scalable and profitable? Watch Dassault Systèmes executives: Pascal Daloz, Chief Executive Officer, Philippine de T’Serclaes, Chief Sustainability Officer, and Philippe Laufer, Executive Vice President Global Brands, as they discuss the importance of connecting the dots in circularity.

Three Pillars of the Circular Economy

At its core, the circular economy is not just about experimenting with circularity initiatives. It's about embracing a fundamental transformation — a technological revolution that redefines product design, the materials used and how businesses operate.

Prioritize Sustainable Materials

The choice of materials can significantly impact your product’s environmental footprint. Incorporate circularity into product development through durable, recyclable and biodegradable materials by design.

Rethink Product Design

The entire product lifecycle matters. Optimize product design for each lifecycle phase to reduce the environmental impact of your products and increase their circularity.

Reshape Value Networks

Ready to merge environmental protection with business operations? Move from linear to circular value networks to demonstrate that value creation and profitability are achievable within strong planetary boundaries.

Activate Circularity: Take Action Today

Escalating resource scarcity, regulatory pressures, shifting consumer expectations, supply chain resilience and risk mitigation are compelling reasons to take action today. To achieve a circular economy that’s scalable and profitable, you need to design products with longevity in mind, invest in sustainable materials and reconfigure your business models. Take these steps today to contribute to a more circular future.
