How to develop valuable synergies for a circular economy?

377 views

Published on

In an economy of shared value and positive impacts it is necessary to truly understand your partner's ecosystem. This is a complex, but necessary task for circular projects and the business models needed. In the slides, we present you tools and a methodology that help to identify, map and involve stakeholders in order to transform to strategic partners into acting in valuable ways.

How to develop valuable synergies for a circular economy?

  1. 1. Why and how involve stakeholders for a circular economy
  2. 2. What is a circular economy?
  3. 3. « The circular economy is a continuous positive development cycle that preserves and enhances natural capital, optimises resource yields, and minimises system risks. » Ellen MacArthur Foundation

  5. 5. Why involve stakeholders?
  6. 6. Today our economy is based on competition and on a short-term way of managing all resources… The case of the agrifood sector* without even being reintroduced into production *in France 1/3 of what is produced is thrown away
  7. 7. …which leads to huge losses, both in terms of costs and in term biodiversity and soil quality. However, if organic waste is recycled correctly, it can provide excellent fertiliser, protecting soil against erosion and cleaning it. This resource therefore represents huge potential in terms of natural fertiliser and as an energy source. Food waste, that is organic matter thrown away throughout the value chain (from production to consumption), costs France between 12 to 20 billion euros a year*. In parallel, in overall agricultural activity, the cost of fertiliser is roughly 15% of supply costs and 5% of total costs for small crops and m o re t h a n 3 0 % a n d 1 2 % respectively for larger ones*.

  8. 8. ? So why not co-operate to make the waste of one party the resource of another?
  9. 9. In ecosystems, actors co-operate, link their competencies and their resources. In return, the clown fish defends its anemone from fish and parasites which attack the anemone's tentacles. The anemone protects the clown fish and its eggs from predators by allowing the fish to cover itself with its mucus, which blocks venim and thereby makes it less vulnerable to predators. An example of symbiosis between the clown fish and the anemone
  10. 10. By gathering together in this way, the fish of one given species allow the smaller fish to be protected in the centre, to detect food sources more efficiently for the whole group and to act together in the face of predators so as to be faster and less vulnerable. The relevance of collective intelligence: the case of the « fish shoal strategy »
  11. 11. They interact in a symbiotic and organised way, on a local scale
  12. 12. to guarantee a better overall performance and greater resilience of the system. The anemones allow the reproduction and survival of numerous marine animals, and thus of the preservation of fish stocks for fishermen and of the underwater temperatures, which is the basis for ecosystem regeneration.
  13. 13. As happens in nature, we need to abandon the « linear » mindset, and move towards circularity - of information, value and resources.
  14. 14. Starting from the paradox of coffee grounds waste UpCycle now offers three business models that involve a large ecosystem of actors, suppliers and beneficiaries. and thus develop viable business models where the notion of ultimate waste does not exist.

  15. 15. In France, the actors in the wind energy sector face a major obstacle from one of their key stakeholders: acceptability by inhabitants. The crowdfunding platform Lendosphère allows one to remove this obstacle by involving local inhabitants right from the start, that is, from the point where financing is organised. In this way, the platform secures their interest and their influence by the creation of economic and social value, which guarantees their interest and their influence by creating economic and social value, which made it possible to register up to 100% participation of local inhabitants for certain projects.

  17. 17. How to make this happen ?
  18. 18. In order to navigate around this complexity, we need to observe and understand the context
  19. 19. to know what others have, what they are doing and thinking around my organisation, in order to act beforehand
  20. 20. and consider any possible interactions and the value chain as a whole, since each stage or flow is an opportunity for synergies or for re-use. © La Poste case study - extract of «  Business model & circular economy » - SlideShare - 2017 MAKE THE PAPER RECYCLING THE PAPER REUSE THE PAPER USE THE PAPER DISTRIBUTE THE PAPER CUT THE TREES EXTRACTION OF CELLULOSE FIBRES NOUVELLE ATTITUDE OR SOCIAL COMPANIES PAPERMAKERS COMPANIES

  23. 23. To do this, you can start using easy to use and clear tools to work on a scale that is appropriate to you
  24. 24. Consider the location of each actor and anticipate their participation in the life cycle of the project, the product or a key resource design+circulareconomy ThisworkislicensedunderthetermsoftheLicenseCretaiveCommonsAttribution Noncommercial-ShareinSameConditions4.0International.
