The circular economy is currently in full development. What you used to have to buy, you can now increasingly use, share or rent. Hundreds of circular projects have already been developed in our country in response to this, but they are often still in the start-up phase. If they are to have a significant impact on the environment and the economy, scaling up is nevertheless essential. Unfortunately, the growth of such projects is often hampered by a lack of financial knowledge and appropriate means of financing, among other things.
As a financial service provider, Econocom wants to do something about this. We want to offer companies with circular projects a higher chance of success and give the circular economy a boost. We drew up an extensive report in which we aim to answer the most important questions on circular financing and propose new business and financing models.
For this report, Econocom analysed the problems and opportunities in the financing of circular projects for the three parties involved: companies, governments and financial partners, and this on a business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-consumer (B2B2C) level. The financial solutions are therefore not intended directly for private individuals.
The report contains a number of successful practical examples and, for each party involved, an overview of the current bottlenecks and misunderstandings, linked to opportunities and a whole series of recommendations.
