La Fabrique Circulaire – a circular economy accelerator for industrial SMEs


La Fabrique Circulaire provides unique expertise and support to Swiss SMEs to tackle the issue of resource consumption. Its mid-term objective is to expand the programme to other cantons in the French-speaking regions of Switzerland by the end of the pilot in 2023.

dss+ Approach

Sofies, now part of dss+, developed a working methodology to deliver expeditious results across 4 axes:

  • Assessing the circular economy potential and maturity in SMEs on-site diagnosis;
  • Shaping the strategy to accelerate the transformation towards industrial models or circular services, while preserving global resources;
  • Co-designing solutions to get ready for operational implementation;
  • Developing synergies through regular meetings and collaborative workshops.
