How does Circular Insights work?

We build supply chain models at the community level and integrate them into our national model.¬†We work with ‘umbrella’ organizations in your region to distribute access to an intuitive data entry platform and supply chain model. Organizations can add as much or as little data as they would like. Once your local model begins to grow, we connect you to the wider and growing Circular Insights supply chain network.

Becoming Circular - The First Step

Visualizing a local supply chain and how it connects to the wider network is the first step in becoming a Circular economy. In order to develop strategic supply chain goals, organizations require a locally focused, interactive, data driven, supply-chain visualization. ‘Circular Insights’ supply chain modelling facilitates informed policy decisions by helping make sense of complex supply chain networks.

Current Modelling Initiative:

Circular Insights is currently building a supply chain model, focusing on the resource rich West-Kootenay region of Southern BC. The region is home to a growing business community. It’s also known for active citizen engagement on environmental protection issues. This model is an initiative between the Lower Columbia Initiatives Corporation (LCIC), Metal Tech Alley, and TruGIS Geospatial. We’re currently collecting suggestions from businesses on ways to make the visualization beneficial to them.
