Meet the Visionaries of Sustainable Innovations

Close the Loop

Close the Loop (CtL) provides best-in-class sustainability solutions to help companies like yours enhance corporate social responsibility programs. We first earned the trust of the global imaging industry where we continue to design and manage highly efficient ink and toner take-back, recovery, and reuse programs. These partnerships are with Fortune 500 companies such as Xerox, Staples, HP and Konica Minolta. Today, manufacturers of all types turn to CtL to minimize waste and work towards a circular economy. A circular economy makes the most of your valuable resources, transforming items that would normally end up in landfills and oceans into useful commodities that can be returned to the supply chain.

Mint Innovation

Mint Innovation, a New Zealand cleantech company, has scaled biological processes that recover valuable metals from waste. Our first process is a unique biometallurgical approach to recover metals from electronic scrap. A key aspect of the Mint process is the use of proprietary microbes that are selective for specific metals. Combined with the advantages of low-cost green chemistry, we aim to make it viable, both economically and environmentally, to capture value from e-waste near its point of collection.

Planet Price

Our team is on a mission to help large organisations tread lightly on the Planet by reducing the environmental and social impact of their supply chain and operations. Sustainable procurement is one the most powerful levers for change with up to 80% of impacts resulting from supply chains. But to influence change, procurement teams need a simple metric that can help them to balance economic, environmental and social considerations.

This is the purpose of Planet Price: to help business transition to a more sustainable, circular future by calculating the real cost of everything.
