About Circularise

Circularise was founded by Mesbah and Jordi, who embarked on a mission to propel the world towards a circular economy. Their journey began in 2016, following visits to several recycling facilities in the Netherlands. During these visits, they discovered that countless products intended for recycling actually ended up incinerated or, even worse, tossed into landfills. 

The reason behind this was a lack of knowledge about the products' composition. Questions related to the materials used, their origin, and their potential hazards remained unanswered. This revelation sparked the inception of Circularise — a company built on the pillars of transparency, sustainability, and innovation. The founders recognised that increasing supply chain transparency and enhancing data exchange using digital product passports would enable sustainable practices on a global scale. 

Developing a digital product passport platform for a circular economy necessitates a diverse and inclusive team. Over the years, Circularise has grown from merely two founders to a strong team of more than forty individuals representing over twenty nationalities. These team members bring their unique perspectives and experiences to the table, united by a common purpose. As Circularise continues to expand, we remain on the lookout for talented, inquisitive minds eager to join in our quest to revolutionise sustainability and bring circular economy to the most complex supply chains.
