RethinkResource is a Swiss company facilitating the implementation of circular economy business models for the producing industry. To jumpstart product and process innovation with secondary resources we offer consulting services. Working in close collaboration with our customers we identified the need to automate the exchange of side and waste streams in an efficient and transparent way. This led us to develop Circado, the leading digital trading platform for sellers and buyers of secondary resources. As early adopters, our customers profit from cross-industry know-how sharing. This combination of a marketplace and community is a platform solution that allows active users to emerge as industry leaders with respect to resource stewardship.
