Clean raw materials and circularity

Building a sustainable future with circular and net zero solutions

The reduction targets are crystal clear. However, due to complex challenges and ongoing uncertainty, the road towards achieving them is not yet paved. In practice, for instance, it is difficult to translate ambitions into policy and workable regulations, while at the same time allowing for the incredible speed of innovations in designs and materials. So, what is the best option? What will change in the coming months and years, for instance, in terms of laws and regulations? What if innovations do not work as well as anticipated? In short, meeting reduction targets requires sound knowledge of production processes as well as energy systems and raw materials. And it requires innovation and a hefty dose of creativity.

Net zero solutions and the circular economy are at the heart of our approach. We are transforming to a new view of value creation in projects and corporate processes, supporting policies and laws and regulations. Although circular economy and net zero solutions are two different concepts with their own focus areas, they share important similarities that reinforce each other: both approaches seek to reduce the harmful impact of human activity on the environment and promote sustainable development to create a resilient future for our planet.

Navigating in an uncertain context

Witteveen+Bos supports clients in all phases of a project: from strategic and technical advice to design, tendering, permits and supervision of the execution. However, we also offer training courses, auditing, management and decommissioning support and advice on reuse.

Our extensive expertise and experience enable us to translate objectives into concrete actions and projects, while also dealing flexibly with the complexity and continuous changes of the playing field. We achieve this by combining knowledge of the latest state of the art with strategic thinking, by incorporating flexibility through smarter process design, and thanks to our ability to anticipate and quickly respond to possible changes.
