Check Out the Business Case Studies of Our sustainable.circular Programme

In a rapidly evolving business landscape, it is imperative for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to remain receptive to fresh ideas and innovative approaches that can revamp their business practices. As part of the first round of our sustainable.circular Programme, the objective was to empower SMEs to adopt sustainable circular approaches, ensuring their continued competitiveness.

During the course of the first round, the project team and the involved companies delved into topics such as, how to ensure that circular approaches are sustainable and discussed the potentials and challenges that entrepreneurs face when integrating circular approaches into their operations. A series of case studies conducted during the programme highlight key areas where SMEs require additional support to fully adopt circularity.

The case studies reveal that the challenges vary, ranging from company culture to knowledge deficit to product or service-related difficulties. A compilation of the case studies, including potentials and next steps is available for download.

CSCP’s sustainable.circular programme was created to ensure that efforts to achieve a circular economy are guided by a clear objective to achieve greater sustainability.

The first round of our sustainable.circular programme is supported and funded by the German Federal Environment Foundation (Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt – DBU) and carried out in cooperation with the Federal Association for Sustainable Economy (Bundesverband Nachhaltige Wirtschaft – BNW e.V.).
