This principle has remained the cornerstone of PA's ethos since 1943 – and it continues to underpin everything it does.
PA challenges convention to find new and imaginative answers, and then turn them into solutions that work in practice.
PA doesn't just believe in making a difference.
It believes in making 'the' difference.
PA has engaged in a number of circular economy initiatives. These include:
Developing a revolutionary compact kitchen towel, from concept to shelf, including a new production system and format to minimise transportation costs and deliver a totally new customer experience.
PA has designed a new business strategy for an imaging company and instigated the changes needed to move from a product business to one that delivers services.
Furthermore, they have shaped the business model and customer value propositions for clean vehicle tyres, based on a circular business model, enabling increased engagement with OEMs.
PA sees the implementation of the circular economy as essential to the future of business success: operating more effectively, creating new growth opportunities and addressing today’s sustainability challenges.
PA’s involvement is being led by its Global Technology & Innovation Centre near Cambridge, UK - home to 250 scientists, engineers, and technologists - all working on cutting edge projects in technology innovation.
However, technology alone will not be enough for a successful transition to the circular economy, and PA will leverage the value of its other capabilities, including business design, programme implementation, and supply chain innovation, to help organisations move from thinking about the circular economy to implementing the circular economy.
