We work with corporate and government clients to identify pathways towards circular business models. 

While it is essential to shift to a new economic paradigm, it is also essential maintain economic stability in the transition.

 

Effective stakeholder engagement identifies opportunities to optimize overall value. 

 

We need a prosperous, restorative, shared value economy.

 

PraxisPoint Philosophy

  • With public sentiment and a physical world that is changing dramatically, we need an economy that flourishes in the new paradigm.
  • To prosper in our human world, our economic activities must support our basic and higher needs, and also align with the natural world. 
  • Our passion – and our business – is to find ways of maintaining robust economic activity while transitioning to a innovation driven, minimum waste, low-carbon economy.
  • Our journey has led us to explore subjects of triple bottom line, natural capitalism and breakthrough capitalism, biomimicry, industrial ecology, shared value and circular economy.
  • Our approach centres on shared value and embraces the circular economy model which properly reflects the natural world where there is no such thing as waste.

People understand this, but are perplexed by the challenges this approach presents to many businesses.  

Answers will be found in new business models, new technologies and new attitudes.  We work with our clients – and all stakeholders in their business areas – to explore all three of these factors.
