Economic Opportunity Through Circularity

Navigant translates the concept of circular economy into tangible and implementable steps


Companies are struggling to reduce their carbon footprints, meet climate goals, and at the same time manage the risks of security of supply of natural resources. Circular economy is a business logic that can identify practical and scalable opportunities to alleviate these concerns and move toward an economy that is regenerative and as waste-free as possible. According to the World Economic Forum, circular economy could save $700 billion globally per year in material costs alone.


Navigant looks at the key levers of energy, material, waste, and more to help clients move toward a circular economy. We focus on reducing costs, improving efficiencies, and transforming business models for competitive advantage.
