Circularity Capital’s mission is to deliver value for investors by supporting SME growth and innovation in the circular economy.
Economic growth has historically been driven by a linear ‘take-make-dispose’ model of production & consumption.
A series of mega-trends is now constraining traditional linear growth and challenging businesses to adopt business models which can enhance resource productivity and drive competitive advantage.
The circular economy provides a framework to transform this challenge into an opportunity by enhancing resource productivity and creating new sources of value.
We Seek Out Businesses That Can Out-Perform The Market And Their Linear Competitors.
We invest in innovative, market leading, businesses that create value from a clearly defined range of circular activities:
- Waste to Product: Businesses upcycling waste material flows into higher value products & materials.
- Product to Product: Businesses extending asset life or enabling multiple use cycles through maintenance, repair, refurbishment and/or remanufacture.
- Product as a Service: Businesses using PaaS or innovative lease/hire models to enhance asset productivity and deliver superior customer solutions.
- Enabling Data Solutions: Businesses leveraging data to drive resource productivity including through extending asset life, enhancing utilisation, enabling multiple use cycles and reducing waste.
- Circular Design: Businesses unlocking value through optimising the design of products or materials to enable recycling, refurbishment, maintenance, reuse or biological restoration.
