Circular Economy & Systems Thinking

Circular Economy

Transforming the System, Driving Circular Progress

The only way forward into a sustainable future for both ourselves and for our planet is to embrace a Circular Economy – an economy that transforms our systems to eliminate waste and where resources are renewed and repurposed.

Not only will this help tackle climate change and improve the health of the general population, but it will also create more local jobs and economic opportunities.

For society to move from a linear to a circular economy, businesses need to minimise their reliance on raw materials that are in limited supply. Recovery, reuse and repurposing will become critical to future business.

Designing for Circularity

Integrating circular solutions into design should now be Business as Usual for all companies.

We help your company and teams integrate circularity into the design of large Projects or Products. This comes with many benefits including:

  • Accelerating your decarbonisation journey,
  • Mitigate your ESG risks
  • Increase efficiencies in your process
  • Create value by valorising resources
  • Future-proof your supply chain

From zero landfill to 100-year design life for projects, we will challenge the traditional processes to develop a market-leading solution for your company.

Circular Ecosystems

No one organisation can realise system change, we need to mobilise new networks and value streams.
The development of circular ecosystems will be critical to Australia transitioning to a circular economy. These ecosystems will save companies money, create new revenue streams, maximise value retention within the local economy, creating both resilience and economic growth.

We have partnered up with The Surpluss to facilitate circular ecosystems across Australia. We faciltate the context in which companies can connect and the local incentives that drive its expansion through network effects and emergence.

We can apply our circular ecosystem framework to:

1. Industrial areas and Ports
2. Regional towns and local government authorities
3. Major companies with large supply chains

To establish your circular ecosystem today, contact our team to find out how we can work together.

Circular Business Assessment


We recognise that transitioning towards a circular economy is a vital step for organisations seeking to remain competitive in today’s rapidly changing business landscape. We also understand that implementing circular principles can be a complex and overwhelming process.

Our Circular Business Assessment is an essential tool for organisations looking to transition towards a circular economy. It provides companies with the orientation, guidance, and expertise necessary for a successful transition.

Our assessment offers a comprehensive analysis of your organisation’s operations to identify areas where circular principles can be applied. By conducting a thorough evaluation of your current baseline, we can help you develop a tailored strategy that addresses your unique challenges and goals.

Our team of experts will guide you through each step of the process, ensuring that your transition to a circular economy is as seamless and efficient as possible.

Systems Thinking

“Today’s problems are often yesterday’s solutions” – Peter Senge

The world is not linear, it is complex and dynamic. Problems cannot be solved in isolation, a holistic view is required in order to understand the interconnections and consequences of our decisions.

Our systems thinking framework is about seeing the unobvious risks and impacts of your companies operations and value chain. We understand how things are interconnected and related, this helps to inform decision-making so that sustainable solutions can be found.

This is critical today given the exceedance of the planetary limits. It is important that decisions made today do not have unintended consequences for tomorrow.

To deliver sustainable solutions, you must first understand how the parts of a system fit together.

System Thinking Workshops to help your teams solve the most complex problems

These workshops will provide participants with the understanding and tools to apply systems thinking approaches to complex projects in the workplace. Workshops include a mix of practical exercises to understand how to map systems and identify areas for intervention.
