Circular Business Model Design Guide
PA Consulting, University of Exeter, EMF
A practical guide to help business leaders identify circular opportunities and design business models that create, deliver and capture value in ways that also benefit society and the environment.
This practical guide has been developed as an Ellen MacArthur Foundation Network collaborative project by business design, sustainability and circular economy experts at PA Consulting and Exeter Business School, with regular testing with small and large businesses across sectors and regions. It includes all the required practical steps, tools, templates and examples to identify circular opportunities and design business models that create, deliver and capture value in ways that also benefit society and the environment. Regardless of sector, region, business activity, size or maturity, it can be used to:
- identify new ‘greenfield’ circular business opportunities and define the business and operating models required
- explore and define how existing linear businesses can become circular
- design new circular business models
- refine existing circular business concepts and pilots.
