We begin with a sketch of the circular system. Which (raw) materials, products and other value streams are being exchanged in the system? And which stakeholders are involved? Then we shift these value streams to minimize resource wastage and maximize value. With this service we look at:
The crucial final step: working out the sketch in practice. This starts with organizing the collaboration between all the parties involved; together, we work out the system step-by-step and we try to revise existing frameworks where necessary.
We were the creators of the concept ‘saving at home’ (‘besparen in huis’ in Dutch) – the first concept in which Eigen Haard tenants could rent white goods as a service. Since then, we have been able to apply this philosophy on several occasions: for example, we have worked with Flown and with Bundles, and we have looked at how profits and risks could be spread in projects including the circular procurement of loose office furniture for the Municipality of Leiden, the circular tender for office furniture for Alliander Duiven, climate and cost neutral demolition and development for Stadstuin Overtoom, and the Fair Meter project.
