Driving Ambitions: The Business Case for Circular Economy in the Car Industry

The circular economy approach enables automotive companies to increase revenues per vehicle by 15-20 times the sales price and significantly improve profitability by maximizing lifetime performance.

In this report, the Circular Cars Initiative (CCI), in collaboration with Accenture, put forward the business case for a circular economy in the automotive industry. Circularity requires co-innovation, partnership and data transparency among automotive companies to align a shared vision on industry-wide circularity and unlock new value pools. The report lays out key components of the circular economy, providing a direct roadmap for strategic transformation and detailing in-depth research on the business potential of a fully circular value chain.
