The first steps towards a circular economy have been taken. This has resulted in many innovations and pioniering projects in the world of construction and real estate.

A panel of front runners and strategic thinkers from the Netherlands discusses what is required for the next steps towards scale, covering adjustments in finance, accounting and even taxes. Apart from new financial strategies, circularity also calls for a new mindset, new partnerships and co-operations, new processes and strategies for (re-)design thinking.

Cécile van Oppen, Co-Founder van Copper8

Cecile van Oppen is co-founder of Copper8. Copper8 works on realizing sustainable breakthroughs in the construction and manufacturing industries: the approach is focused on understanding the real purpose of projects and having the clients think in terms of functional questions rather than direct solutions.  

Copper8 analyzes the system in which the clients operate and identify where the system conflicts with the sustainability ambitions. In a project-atmosphere a process of collaboration is created and implemented, keeping the interests of all the parties (principal and contractors) in mind. The collaborative processes lead to technical breakthroughs in the sustainability realm, and moreover introduce new business models that contribute towards a sustainable future.
