wbcsd new business solutions | U.S. Materials Marketplace


In partnership with the Corporate EcoForum and the U.S. BCSD, scale up the Materials Marketplace in the U.S., accelerate company-to-company material re-use opportunities and byproduct synergies. The Material Marketplace, already a successful marketplace in specific cities in the U.S., provides an online platform to bring together businesses of all sizes and entrepreneurs to create closed-loop systems in which one company’s waste is another company’s raw material. In addition to diverting waste from landfills, these reuse activities generate significant cost and energy savings while creating new business opportunities. This Business Solution seeks to accelerate and scale the Materials Marketplace, by bringing more companies into this platform to develop first a national Materials Marketplace and help companies achieve zero waste to landfill goals and foster cross-company collaboration to close the material loop.

  • Launch Date

    The U.S. Materials Marketplace is in scoping stage with several companies. A decision to move forward will be made by the end of April 2015. It is already being championed by companies such as Corporate EcoForum Members Nike and GM as well as several others.

  • Next meeting / call
