Green business models
Green business models can turn ideas into sustainable and successfull solutions for your company.
Green business models and sustainable initiatives
Focus on green business models can ensure that good ideas turn into sustainable business.
The ongoing green transformation leads to several economic, regulatory and structural changes, which effect most industries. A greater focus on green business models can ensure that your business is prepared for future legal requirements, customer requirements, energy supply’s, scarce resources, waste handling systems etc. However, experience and insights are required when the opportunities in the green transformation are to be exploited successfully.
During recent years, a strong focus has been laid on adaptation of existing products and services in order to make them more sustainable or resource-efficient, for instance by recycling products or reducing the energy consumption during production. Furthermore, the increasing focus on the limited resources of the earth, and how to use them effectively without damaging the environment, makes it necessary to rethink habits and ways of production, consumption and removal.

What is eco-design?
There are many definitions of eco-design, but the concept is basically about addressing environmental concerns systematically thoughout the development of products, while applying a life cycle perspective. Eco-design is related to terms such as ’Design for Environment’, ’Life Cycle Design’, ’Life Cycle Management’ and so forth.
For energy consuming products, special eco-design regulation is in place within the EU.
How do green business models relate to the terms circular economy and green transition?
These terms are closely connected and all relate to societal development, which is driven by the need to decouple the economic development from the environmental impacts and consumption of resources.
Green business models: The term covers new and more environmental friendly ways to conduct business. Normally a green business model involves one or more of the following elements: recycling of products and materials, sharing economy and substitution of unwanted or toxic substances.
Circular economy: Circular economy is about keeping materials and products within the economic circuit with the highest possible value for the longest time possible. Circular economy discards the idea of a linear value chain, which starts with the extraction of resources and ends with waste. Instead the circular economy focuses on reuse and recycling of materials.
Green transition: A general term which covers profound changes in our consumption patterns, thereby making this more environmental friendly. The term can cover structural, economic as well as technological transitions at a societal or a company level. Often the term is used more narrowly to describe the transition from fossil energy to energy from renewable energy sources.
