Apr22329 PEA Switzerland’s clients are leaders in their specific expertise, and they are always searching for innovative solutions – EPEA Switzerland is a company able to provide them with professional expertise on cradle to cradle and circular economy. The company believes that we all have a responsibility towards future generations to provide them with safe, circular, good quality and sufficient quantity of resources, so they can design their own products based on their individual values. EPEA Switzerland supports companies, brands to develop products with the aim of maintaining the quality of raw materials over multiple lifecycles, taking the production processes, the use, and the reutilisation into account. This means no waste. And only pure, assessed safe chemicals are used. Cradle to Cradle Certified® owned by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is the most ambitious, actionable standard yet for designing and making products today which enable a healthy, equitable, and sustainable tomorrow. Additionally, it is regarded as the most trusted and advanced science-based standard for reaching a new quality dimension while ensuring high economic value as well as no environmental damage. The goal is to strive for a new level of quality and safety in endless cycles. Indeed, it is the company’s team that makes this all happen, with EPEA Switzerland’s CEO, Albin Kaelin saying, “A team is more capable than an individual, and that eye-level communication together with professionalism enables the valuable respect to create an open-minded culture.” But none of it comes without its challenges. Supply chains have proven to be one, since they are global, complex, dependent, and fragile. However, EPEA Switzerland’s Supply Chain Domino Knowledge Transformation methodology speeds up the project time, taking it down to 12 months. And with covid forcing it to move from physical presence to digital, the company has become stronger than ever before. E Ultimately, if businesses continue to do business like it is done today, there will be no future; as Albin says, it will be “cradle to grave”. He goes on to say, “We need cradle to cradle. Circular economy will become legislation in the EU member states. Business will get a new framework. Do the homework now and become a winner.” Company: EPEA Switzerland GmbH Contact: Albin Kaelin Email: Website: Social Media: epeaswitzerland Cradle to Cradle Certified® is a registered trademark of the C2CPII Cradle to Cradle® is a registered trademark of MBDC Cradle to Cradle Design Innovations, Rethinking the Way We Make Things
