About the focus area
When designing, implementing and optimising circular value chains, it is easy to get lost in the complexity of using multiple circular strategies. More so, since this can involve having to work with existing stakeholders in new ways or having to engage with more, new or different types of stakeholders. This workbook will help you to identify who the relevant stakeholders are for you to realise your circular initiative, how to align interests across your value chain, and how to work with your stakeholders to capture new opportunities. What opportunities lie within your value chain?
What you get
This work package will provide you with a clear understanding of the relationships to maintain along your circular value chain, such that material productivity is maximised, energy use is optimised, information is accessible to relevant stakeholders and the necessary infrastructure is put in place to benefit the entire chain. This may involve (slightly) altering the nature of existing partnerships, but can also involve establishing new relationships or necessitate the creation of new entities.
In short, this work package provides you with:
- guidance with regards to the stakeholder-network requirements to make your circular solution work;
- a clear understanding of what relationships need to be maintained, altered or established to make your circular solution a success;
- support with designing, planning and facilitating stakeholder engagement and workshops.
