By 2030, two thirds of the world’s population will live in urban areas, a change that will force billions of people to rethink their habits and cities to face new challenges: resource consumption, the environment, resilience, and economic and social inclusion. This new scenario has forced companies and governments to revise their linear economic approach in which products are discarded once they reach their end-of-life. As an enabler of innovation and technological transformation for smarter and more sustainable living, Enel X is leading the transition toward a future-proof development model, with the Circular Economy as a crucial pillar. We believe it effectively solves the biggest challenges in today's world.
Five Business Models to Create New Value
Sustainable inputs, recycle and reuse, product-as-a-service, sharing platforms and product life extension are the five principles of a new, circular development model that represents an extraordinary opportunity for people, businesses and cities in terms of competitiveness, innovation and job creation - generating new value for everyone, everywhere.
We provide tools that increase circularity, reduce environmental impact and create new opportunities to make businesses more competitive.
We make cities more livable, assessing their circularity and boosting it through smart lighting, energy efficiency and e-mobility solutions.
We make homes smarter, more comfortable and more sustainable: our circularity scores ensure product traceability and transparency.
The Meaning of Circular Economy
The Circular Economy is the new economic frontier where the concepts of population growth and limited resources are the key drivers. We need an answer, and the five business models of the Circular Economy can definitely come to our aid.
