We believe that it is possible to reconcile value creation with the preservation of health and the environment. We are convinced that the Cradle to Cradle vision of circular economy has positive impacts for territories, companies and the planet. This need to give meaning, to have a positive impact on the environment, and to put people back at the centre of economic activity, are the driving forces that inspire our teams and the Upcyclea platform.
Co-founder & CEO Upcyclea
Upcyclea was born from a meeting between two people who dreamed of changing the world. Eleven years ago, this dream was transformed into a passion for the Cradle to Cradle philosophy (via the creation of the EPEA France agency), then, more recently, into a start-up aimed at accelerating the transition of companies and territories towards the circular economy.
Cradle to Cradle is the root of the circular economy and has been deployed worldwide since the late 1980s. Thousands of products and buildings are designed according to this biomimetic approach where the notion of waste does not exist, where renewable energy is required, and where cooperation between stakeholders is a source of positive impacts.
But to “close the loops” of materials, we need viable and resilient economic models based on ecosystems, sources of value creation. That’s what Upcyclea is all about.
The circular era can now begin…
