Car dashboards made from tomato skins, endlessly reusable workwear and soup made from scrap vegetables. There are already various examples of circular entrepreneurship. Rabobank is convinced that reliable and circular enterprises are better prepared for the future.
Getting started with circular business
We want to help entrepreneurs in their circular business, creating a cycle of products and materials that provides value for as long as possible. Partners who see opportunities in recycling or re-using materials are also necessary, and consumer or customer willingness also has an important role to play.
We support entrepreneurs in various ways. With research, knowledge, our network and financing (risks) or circular business model, always in an active dialogue with our customers. When providing funding for circular business activities, we always consider:
Circular businesses pay more attention to the potential scarcity of certain (organic) resources and materials, reduce carbon emissions and are quicker to recognise the emergence of new needs and markets. As a result, these businesses are more resilient, more innovative and less vulnerable. Their sustainable business models make them the market leaders of the future.
