3 Step IT listed as one of the most interesting companies in the circular economy in Finland
Sitra – a fund created for the advancement of Finland’s sustainable well-being – has published its third listing of most interesting Finnish companies in the circular economy. 3 Step IT is again on the list with 97 other companies. With their solutions, the companies on the list show how profitable business is already conducted in a new way that promotes the circular economy.
Finland is the first country to publish its national roadmap to circular economy. As a part of the roadmap, the list of companies was published for the first time in October 2016. The list showcases examples of business activities to encourage Finnish companies to switch to sustainable business activities that follow the principles of a new and more efficient economy. As the number of the pioneers increases, more will be required from these motivator companies.
“In 2017 we celebrated our 20th birthday and we are proud of the fact that our business has always had the circular economy at its heart. Hopefully for the circular economy, as for us, this is only a great beginning”, says Carmen Ene, CEO, 3 Step IT.
The businesses on the list have been divided into five circular economy business models: Product-life extension, product as a service, sharing platform, renewability and resource efficiency and recycling. 3 Step IT is listed in the product-life extension category.
