The RESOLVE Framework

Regenerate

100%
Shift to renewable energy and materials. Reclaim, retain and regenerate the health of ecosystems. Return recovered biological resources to the biosphere. For example, the Savory Institute’s promotion of comprehensive land management has influenced the regeneration of more than 2.5 million hectares of commercial land around the world.

Share

100%
Maximise utilization of products through peer-to-peer sharing of privately-owned products or public sharing of pools of products; reuse them throughout their technical life spans; prolong life through maintenance, repair, and design for durability.

Optimise

100%
Improve the performance of products; remove waste from their supply chains; leverage big data, automation and remote sensing. None of these actions requires changing products or technologies.

Loop

100%
Keep components and materials in closed loops and prioritise the inner ones. For finite materials this means remanufacturing products, components and (as a last resort) recycling materials, as Michelin, Rolls-Royce, and Renault are already doing.

Virtualise

100%
Deliver utility virtually-books or music, online shopping, fleets of autonomous vehicles or virtual offices.

Exchange

100%
Replace old materials with advanced renewable ones; apply new technologies, such as 3-D printing and electric engines.

The Inner Circle From Cost To Value

It’s a new era of industrial renewal. In today’s world, digital & technology innovations provide organizations the opportunity to create new jobs and protect the environment by simply reducing their operational inefficiencies. It is described as the ‘trillion-dollar opportunity’. Will drive innovation in tomorrow’s companies and reshape every part of our lives. While leaving behind the traditional linear model (take-make-dispose), a new mindset is taking over economies worldwide.

It is called Circular Economy and it is gradually redesigning the way we use finite resources and waste. Its core principle lays in the maximum value extracted from resources while they are still in use. Therefore, the product end-of-life is eliminated because its constituent products and materials can be recovered and regenerated.

In order to lead change, one should always understand the big picture. In the actual context, governments are imposing new restrictions on pollution and waste, while also supporting companies with attractive packages throughout the transition to a circular model. By adopting circular principles, integrating new technologies and fostering innovation, organizations can achieve growth from within. Up to 3% resource productivity growth every year, while having an impact on society. This is what applying circular principles can bring to any European company.

We are lucky to be here. We have the chance to witness the shifting process of re-industrialization, with its huge impact on society and global economies. Only in Europe, this can lead to a primary-resource benefit up to €0.6 trillion/year by 2030 and can generate €1.2 trillion in non-resource and externality benefits.
