Scale360° Circular Innovation

Scale360° fast-tracks Fourth Industrial Revolution impact in the circular economy by bringing together public and private sector leaders and innovators to jumpstart collaboration for circular innovation.

The Challenge

The small fraction of the economy keeping products and materials in use is getting smaller and smaller each day. Despite concerted efforts, CO2 emissions, natural resource extraction, and processing—around 50% of current greenhouse gas emissions—is increasing. Demand for raw materials under a ‘business-as-usual’ scenario is predicted to double by 2050. To reverse these negative trends, governments, technologists, and entrepreneurs must embrace and prioritize the circular transition.

The Opportunity

Scale360°'s unique, tested methodology – and its Scale360° Circular Innovation Playbook – deploy Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies to rethink consumption and production. Stakeholders brought together by Scale360° (including financiers, technologists, activists, public servants and more) can transform the pipeline of future innovations together.

Discover how the Scale360° Playbook can drive circular innovation in your community.
