step 1

POST MATERIALS AVAILABLE AND/OR MATERIALS YOU MAY BE ABLE TO USE

To foster strong communication and efficient implementation of material reuse opportunities, participants will use an online database where materials needed and available are posted and trades are facilitated. This space is confidential, secure and provides a neutral ground to stimulate creation of innovative reuse solutions.

step 2

WE’LL HELP SORT THROUGH THE DATA AND ID RESOURCE MATCHES

Core to the program is a facilitated process that allows companies to understand each other’s material flows and stimulates collaborative, innovative and business-friendly solutions. What starts as an effort to address ‘my’ company’s materials challenges quickly becomes a diverse mix of companies and entrepreneurs working on ‘our’ by-product issues.

step 3

AFTER A QUICK CHECK OF THE FEASIBILITY, YOU MAKE THE EXCHANGE

The project team will support exchanges by leveraging best practices from our extensive case study library, international network of material reuse projects, technical partners and engineering expertise from partner companies. Upon completion of the transaction, the project team will do an analysis on the exchange and report back on the environmental and economic impact.

The project is hosted on the US BCSD's award-winning Materials Marketplace software. This online tool enables participating companies and project staff to easily post materials available or desired, identify reuse opportunities, and exchange underutilized materials. Hundreds of companies - large and small - academic institutions, non-profits and entrepreneurs are using the Materials Marketplace around the world. 

  • Easy, secure, and confidential data input and by-product transactions.
  • Expert support in reuse opportunity identification and materials exchange facilitation.
  • Engage employees across your organization on creative material reuse; and easily educate users, regardless of prior experience.
  • Environmental and economic benefits of the transactions tracked and reported.
  • The Materials Marketplace is constantly being improved to make it more powerful, visually appealing, and user friendly. 

Participation in the Materials Marketplace doesn't take a major time and staff commitment, and your company/organization account can be configured for a variety of setups and needs.

ONE FACILITY AND SINGLE USER

Ideal for small businesses, where the company administrator also has knowledge of their material inputs, waste and by-products.

ONE FACILITY, MULTIPLE USERS

Ideal for larger single-facility businesses where multiple users may be sourcing materials, and managing waste and by-products. A single company administrator can manage all users from one account as well.

MULTIPLE FACILITIES, MULTIPLE USERS

For large companies with multiple facilities, each individual location can be added to the marketplace, have it's own users, and a single company administrator account to keep track of it all.

Get engaged to access new and innovative business opportunities to reduce your company’s waste-to-landfill and carbon footprint, collaborate with like-minded peers, and implement real strategies within a new circular economy.
