During the CIRCO Track, GSF Glasbouw discovered new circular business opportunities around circular insulation glass. They started working on them immediately after the Track.
GSF Glasgroep has been active as a glass dealer and repairer for many parties such as insurers, housing associations and the contracting industry for more than 30 years. Maarten Rood took over the company from his parents when it was still a traditional supply and installation company for insulation glass. In recent years, he has increasingly received comments that glass is a very polluting, CO2 emitting material. Is there a possibility to use glass in a circular or partially circular way?
"After we were able to market our circular glass as a business model in the CIRCO Track, many more doors turned out to open than we expected. A whole circular market opened up for us. Our advice: CIRCO Track, do it!"- Maarten RoodDirector GSF Glasgroep
The circular economy does not arise by itself. CIRCO (a program of TKI-CLICKNL) focuses on getting a new market moving. CIRCO therefore activates - with the support of the government - entrepreneurs and creative professionals to (re)design products, services and business models in order to then do circular business.
