Circularity is a necessity


Necessity? Yes!

Circularity is a necessity to maintain the livability of the earth and to limit the depletion of the earth. We also apply the knowledge and expertise that Tresviri has built up in the field of cost management to circularity. We make circularity measurable and transparent. Making circularity measurable is a prelude to improving circularity. These are steps to achieve circular business operations.  


Measurable and transparent

Making circularity measurable

We offer the following services in the field of circularity:

  • Management of emissions
  • Making procurement processes circular
  • Carrying out feasibility studies of investments in circular projects
  • Awareness and application training to integrate circularity into daily work
Circularity, like sustainability, has become a container concept that is used by organizations and companies at every turn. This leads to skepticism from customers in many areas. That is why there is a real need to make a professionalization. Making this measurable is the first step. This is the area where Tresviri has a lot of experience in Cost Engineering. We have specific knowledge of working with databases, using large databases, and making this information transparent and transparent for management purposes. 

Defining circularity is necessary to achieve a good improvement process. We focus on the following points of attention:

  • Greenhouse gas emissions (including CO2).
  • Reuse materials.
  • Origin of raw materials.
  • Emissions of nutrients (including nitrogen compounds).
  • Emission of toxic substances.
  • Investments in Social Capital.

Management of emissions

To reduce global warming, it is necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is also economically necessary to reduce emissions to zero. The cost of fossil fuels continues to rise, the prices of emission rights are rising sharply and customers are actively asking for them. This is supported by legislation and this regulatory burden will continue to increase. 
Our working method in the field of emission management is to set up an emission administration, draw up a plan for the legal cost reduction, and determine the cost/benefit ratio for extra-legal emission reduction. In this way, emissions can be reduced and reported based on the correct information. 

Making purchasing processes circular

The key to making companies and organizations circular is to make the purchasing processes circular. If all products, services, and raw materials are purchased circularly, the company or organization is also largely circular. This not only makes the company more circular, but the entire chain improves circularity in this way. Tresviri has therefore developed a method for making procurement processes circular.

Our working method is as follows:

  • Making an inventory of the purchasing flows and carrying out a baseline measurement.
  • Comparing the baseline measurement with the benchmark for the products in question.
  • Apply the circularity focus according to the policy of the company or organization (emissions, raw materials, reuse, etc.)
  • Determine strategy how the circularity optimization can be integrated into the purchasing process.
  • Increasing the circularity requirements towards suppliers.
  • Awareness and application training to integrate circularity into daily work.
  • Reporting on achieved and future results.

Conduct feasibility studies

In the case of long-term investments, the costs must also be taken into account for future legislation. Many projects have an expected lifespan beyond 2050. The emission must therefore be reduced to zero. Raw material prices will also increase, as will social pressure to become circular.
Our specialty is the calculation of costs of technical maintenance and projects. We can also attach the estimate of circularity over the entire life cycle of projects. When making an investment decision, future developments in the field of circularity can also be anticipated. This increases the chance of a successful project. 

Awareness and application training

Circular working in companies and organizations is increasingly becoming a focus. However, it is often seen more as a hobby of some individuals within organizations. A strategic policy supported by the organization ensures that steps can be taken in the field of circularity.

In our training and workshop, the urgency of circular procurement, the influence of the organization on this, and the preparation of a strategy are discussed. We focus on both the environmental impact and the business impact.


Invite us for a no-obligation conversation and you will take the first step towards improving your circularity. We are happy to come to you.
