to increase the awareness of developing novel business models in a society based on bioeconomy and circular principles.
We work to
Facilitate and demonstrate possible ways of creating new businesses that are green, yet economic attractive by:
• Proposing considerations for investors that wish to go green and invest in green and sustainable businesses (and remember, green is much more than CO2! – you need systems thinking … )
• Creating awareness of environmentally sustainable business models
• Participating in business activities that have minimal ecological footprint or encourage and spread the understanding of a viable bioeconomy or the importance of nature conservation.
Many policies are encouraging recycling of material and the transition of our current fossil fuel economic system into a bioeconomy. The opportunities are many. And we are confident that it is possible to produce many products in a sustainable way, and that people can have a fulfilling and resourceful life – without continuing the current high pressure on the planet. – novel ways of using biomass and novel ways of producing biomass are key elements.
Shifting the mindset of business operators and investors could solve many of the current and future challenges that humans face.
Viable businesses should:
* be based on the green economy principles of sustainable development.
* produce products that are degradable or reusable
* safeguard a large and diverse standing stock of natural capital
* ensure ecosystem goods and services are plentiful and healthy for future use
An impossible mission? – No, we believe it is doable!

Who is behind?
I have a MSc in biology and an MBA. I have previous experience in starting up companies, and am currently involved in fostering research and innovation in the blue bioeconomy through public-public collaborations in Europe. I am familiar with the work of IPBES, and EU policies, especially in the bioeconomy research area. Through BioCircular I seek to get this knowledge out in action.
In BioCircular I collaborate with other experts that can supplement with other types of expertise, e.g. in specific plants, animals, ecosystems – or in innovative processes, business development and reporting.
