Sitra is updating its popular list “The most interesting companies in the circular economy”, showcasing the most inspiring examples of the circular economy in Finland. A new list called “The most interesting companies in the circular economy 2.1” will feature Finnish companies that have the potential to grow and scale their business even further.

Companies can apply to be featured on the list using an online form by 16 April 2020. Anyone can use the same form recommend interesting companies to Sitra. The final list will be comprised of 30 to 40 companies.

“Many people ask us about the most interesting companies in the circular economy right now. With this list we provide the answers to this very question,” says Marleena Ahonen, circular economy specialist at Sitra.

Sitra has maintained a list of the most interesting companies in the circular economy since 2017. In that time, the circular economy has transformed from being something that involved a few pioneering individual companies to become widespread profitable business.

The first list comprised just 19 companies. During the following years, more than a hundred Finnish companies made it onto the list, which has been very popular among journalists, investors, students and jobseekers alike.

Circular economy solutions can save natural resources and halt biodiversity loss

The new list will include examples of all five circular economy business models: product-as-a-service, renewability, sharing platforms, product-life extension, and resource efficiency and recycling.

“We already know that there are companies that can provide solutions to the global sustainability crisis in Finland. Circular economy solutions can be used to save natural resources, which will cut emissions and halt the loss of biodiversity,” says Riku Sinervo, circular economy specialist at Sitra.

A panel of experts, consisting of circular economy specialists from Sitra and its stakeholders, will select the companies to be included on the list.

Companies can apply to be featured on the list using an online form by 16 April 2020.
