Let’s take successful steps towards circular economy together

Concrete and functional support for municipalities and businesses towards circular economy.

Vitality and new markets emerging from circular economy

When appropriately implemented, circular economy introduces new vitality for municipalities and fresh business opportunities for companies while offering considerable benefits for branding. So, let’s take successful steps towards circular economy together! 

Municipalities have several tools for the promotion of circular economy changes available, including the development of procurement, plot allocation, and industrial policy. The goal is for municipal operations to encourage and further support businesses towards circular economy. KiPi is here to provide concrete support for municipalities and businesses in this regard. 

We provide our services for questions and challenges related to built environment and industrial symbiosis.

In the future, there’s only one economy. Circular economy.

Establishing material self-sufficiency through circular economy.


New regional vitality from circular economy


The circular economy helps ensure material self-sufficiency

Circular economy is the economy model of tomorrow, with versatile benefits for the economy, the environment, and social factors as well.

The growing role of circular economy for operations of both the municipalities and businesses has been emphasised more than ever before, and not just from the environmental perspective: the war in Ukraine and material availability challenges following the conflict, together with the increased energy costs were the final wake-up call for the importance of self-sufficiency for materials. The less dependent the municipality or business is in terms of raw materials produced elsewhere, the more self-sufficient it can be in the future.

Societies are continuously producing material and by-products hiding massive, unutilised potential. Currently, EU’s circular material use rate is only 11 percent (Eurostat 2021). The remaining 89 percent is turned to waste that requires us to invest considerable amount of time and resources.

If our desire is to remain as self-sufficient as possible during the time of crisis as well, we must come up with ways to better circulate our regional resources instead of wasting them completely and being dependent on external resources. However, many operators lack the competence and functional tools for this process.

We at KiPi are here to help. Together with other operators and experts we look for, find, and tailor the best tools for you to use.

What is circular economy about?

Circular economy is the economy model of tomorrow, focusing on retaining the material value in societal processes as high as possible, for as long as possible.

Circular economy is not just about recycling: it is rethinking and imagining the core processes, such as planning and material flow. This process results in all operations running in accordance with the principles of resource efficiency.

In general, about 90% of decisions making or breaking circular economy are made during the planning stage of products, processes, and services.
