Nexity Network creates a circular, more transparent, and productive world by cutting out waste, regenerating ecosystems, and keeping products in use. Committed to decoupling the economy from material flows — improving the rate of resource efficiency faster than the growth rate. Green capitalism is here.
In our current economy, we take materials from the Earth, make products from them, and throw them away as waste — the linear process.
In a circular economy, we stop waste being produced in the first place by capturing the value of a closed-loop flow for the business ecosystem, responsible consumers, and the natural environment.
The raw materials get sourced, processed, and turned into a product; the product is consumed and eventually disposed of.
The vast majority of waste in this system is non-recyclable, either getting burned or ending up in a landfill. The valuable resources get discarded, and all the trash must be stored somewhere.
Waste is produced along the entire value chain of a product. Many resources get lost from sourcing raw materials to transport and manufacturing. The materials are cut and shaped into a desirable form during transport, and manufacturing resources get misplaced or damaged.
Let’s change that. Together.
Nexity’s main sustainability pillars
- Ecosystem Services: Protecting, sustaining, and restoring the health of critical natural habitats and ecosystems;
- Green Engineering and Chemistry: Reusing or recycling chemicals, treating chemicals to render them less hazardous, and disposing of chemicals properly;
- Stressors: Reducing effects of stressors such as pollutants, greenhouse gas emissions, and genetically modified organisms on the ecosystem;
- Resource Integrity: Reducing waste generation, increasing recycling, and ensuring proper waste management;
- Sustainable Communities: Promote the development, planning, building, or modification of communities to make them more sustainable;
- Incentives: Generate incentives that work with human nature to encourage sustainable practices;
- Supply and Demand: Promote price or quantity changes that alter economic growth, environmental health, and social prosperity;
- Natural Resource Accounting: Incorporate natural capital depreciation in accounting indices and ecosystem services in cost-benefit analysis;
- Costs: Positively impact costs of processes, services, and products;
- Prices: Promote a cost structure that accounts for externalities to production;
Industrial waste-stream valorization
Utilizing waste streams as a source of secondary resources and recovering waste for reuse and recycling.
The zero-waste thinking is leveraging resource consumption, the production of non-product and product outputs, and end-of-life output.
Everything around us has been designed by someone:
- The clothes we wear;
- The buildings we live and work in;
- The systems that deliver food and mobility;
Today, in industries like fashion and plastics packaging, products and systems are designed so that more than 80% of material flows are destined for landfill, incineration, or leaked into natural environments.
With circular product design, we can prevent the creation of waste and pollution right at the start.
