Why Circular Economy
Investing in Circular Economy is the Wisest Way to Mitigate Systemic Risks
and Create Real Value
The First Movers in this ongoing circular transition build a solid competitive edge and are more likely to outperform competitors, delivering first-tier returns, while preserving the planet and improving the quality of life. This is what makes Circular Economy future-proof: all major market research indicates that SMEs growth is the key for a holistic Circular transition across industry verticals, especially in a region where SMEs are the backbone of the economy and society. Sporos Platform presents itself as the most efficient way to put this transition in action now, rather than later.
Circular Economy model is restorative and regenerative by design. Circularity refers to the circular flow and efficient (re)use of resources and materials, with the key aim to have products, services, components and materials kept at their highest value at all times. A Circular Economy clearly goes beyond resource efficiency and recycling and provides the framework to develop new innovative business models aimed at increasing the value, use and life of materials, products and assets.
Therefore, a Circular Economy is the most efficient answer to solving the problem of the depletion and economic scarcity of resources, addressing linear business risks and tackling both the causes and effects of climate change. In fact, a Circular Economy is the only model that operationalises sustainability in a way that is friendly to current market dynamics and way of life.
According to the European Investment Bank (EIB), this circular way of producing and consuming enables a decoupling of economic growth from the extraction and consumption of materials, offering a way to hedge future resource and material supply risks for companies and increase their resilience to decreasing supplies and increasing price uncertainty and volatility.
This will reduce resource dependency and – particularly by spurring innovation – also boost competitiveness, particularly for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Due to its expected environmental, climate, social and economic benefits, a Circular Economy is not only being strongly promoted by the EU institutions, as well as a growing number of EU Member States and cities, it is also attracting increasing attention from the business community and from public and private investors.
