Trend report explores steps brands are taking toward a more sustainable economic model.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
In its latest report, JWT, the worlds best-known marketing communications brand, explores an alternative economic model thats gaining traction, how some brands are adopting circular economy principles and why these can boost competitiveness.
Among some of the worlds top corporate leaders, theres a growing understanding that traditional business modelsbuilt on the presumption of unlimited and cheap natural resourcesmust be reworked for 21st century realities, said JWTIntelligence editorial director Marian Berelowitz. This is an important topic not only because the approach is far better for the planet but because tapping into circular principles may well be essential to businesses long-term health.
The circular economy represents a markedly different way of doing business, replacing established practices like planned obsolescence with new approaches to generating profits. This report examines how brands across categoriesfrom Puma and Ford to Ikea and Starbucksare taking steps toward implementing the circular economy by rethinking elements of the status quo: leasing rather than selling products, remanufacturing goods, seeking ways to extend the life of products or their components, finding more value in waste, or designing for circular use.
In addition, the report explains how the circular economy differs from the linear economy, why this concept is gaining more adherents now and what this model means for brands. The report also incorporates insights from interviews with several experts and influencers.
