Wanted by Sitra: Circular economy solutions that change the world


The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra is looking for circular economy solutions that change the world.

Organisations and businesses need inspiration to take part in the circular transition. To provide that inspiration, Sitra is collecting a selection of circular economy solutions that are among the most viable, promising, scalable and impactful in the world.

In future, most of the value creation of companies will come from circular economy business models of which Sitra has identified five: 1) product as a service, 2) renewability, 3) sharing platforms, 4) extending the product life cycle and 5) resource efficiency and recycling.

From 2016 to 2019, Sitra has curated a list of the most interesting Finnish examples of the circular economy. With this list, Sitra has challenged Finnish companies to respond to the needs of a changing world, as well as showcased the most interesting solutions and applications of the circular economy to new audiences.

The list of world’s leading circular economy solutions aims to do exactly the same – but this time on a global scale.

All submitted solutions are being evaluated by Sitra and Deloitte specialists, and selected companies will be interviewed. Based on the survey and interviews, Sitra will draw up a list of change-making circular economy solutions from around the world.

The list of leading circular economy solutions will be presented at the next World Circular Economy Forum in 2021, who will be bringing together 2000 circular economy thinkers and doers from around the globe in Toronto (Canada).
