New REBus pilots provide snapshot of what could be achieved on a large scale

24th October 2017

The potential of adopting innovative new business models on a large scale has been highlighted today by the latest series of case studies from the WRAP led REBus project; including Samsung UK, Naturalmat and Po-zu.

To date, REBus, the EU Life+ funded partnership project*, has published 25 case studies from organisations in the UK and Netherlands testing a methodology that enables them to transform their strategies to profitable, resilient and more resource efficient business models (REBMs).  In total 35 different organisations have been benefiting from the expertise, advice and support of the pioneering business pilot project over the last two years.

The recent 'Extrapolating resource efficient business model potential across Europe' report outlines how large-scale adoption of the sort of business models, which have been piloted throughout the course of the REBus project, could deliver substantial economic and environmental benefits.

As the REBus project nears its end (closing at the end of 2017), the main learnings from all the pilots have been brought together in a clear ‘Summary of learnings’ report, also published today. It highlights common learnings for SMEs and larger companies, and outlines the key stages to implementing a resource efficient business model.
