Circular Advantage report coverAccenture has published a report, Circular Advantage: Innovative Business Models and Technologies to Create Value in a World without Limits to Growth.

In the report, Accenture shows that leading organisations are now adopting circular economy models and, thus, gaining a competitive edge (what they call a circular advantage).

A circular economy is where growth is decoupled from the use of scarce resources through disruptive technology and business models based on longevity, renewability, reuse, repair, upgrade, refurbishment, capacity sharing and dematerialization. This will lead to companies gaining a circular advantage — driving both resource efficiency and customer value, and delivering at the heart of a company’s strategy, technology and operations.

In their detailed report, Accenture identifies five new business models, ten disruptive technologies and five enabling capabilities critical to capture the circular advantage.
