Circular Economy Boosted by Business Directory

Aiming to connect companies providing or seeking sustainable solutions, the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) has launched an online business-to-business Circular Economy Directory.

The online platform targets to help businesses boost the circular economy at a greater speed and scale by finding suitable suppliers that have listed their products and services. There are categories such as carbon, sharing and trading existing resources, and extending the lifespan.

According to James Griffin, GM of Projects and Advisory at SBN, this will be a valuable resource for businesses when transitioning from a linear to a circular economy.

“Businesses haven’t known who can help them or where to find them, so we have created a one-stop-shop to provide access to what they need,” he said.

​​“The Circular Economy Directory exists to easily find solutions to solve the issues we face now. It provides access to innovative products and services that contribute to regenerating our world rather than degrading it.”

As government and people are more concerned about environmental problems, businesses are urged to act on sustainability practices.

“We understand that businesses have problems with plastics and zero waste commitments that aren’t easy to solve,” said Rui Peng, chief executive of Critical.

“Not only that, but they also want durable products while being able to tell a great story to their customers. We hope to not only solve those issues but to also solve one of the biggest pollution crises of our generation. The directory provides a much-needed conduit to businesses looking for innovative ways to reuse existing materials as well as other circular economy practices.”
