GLOBAL CIRCULAR
NETWORK

Traceability meets circularity. A digital product passport platform that connects products to a collaborative circular economy

MORE THAN JUST A DPP; ITS A COLLABORATIVE CIRCULARITY ACTION PLAN

The Global Circular Network is for businesses to transition from linear to "circular-ish" and then to an interconnected, inclusive smart circular economy, starting NOW

The Global Circular Network (GCN) is a Digital Product Passport (DPP) and Extended Product Responsibility (EPR) platform designed to facilitate communication, compliance, and collaboration.

Our innovative B2B technology incorporates RFiD THREADS®, the world's first bulk scanning radio frequency identification tool integrated into a single washable thread. Linked to our cloud app through UHF RFID readers, GCN creates unprecedented connectivity between industries, government, and research sectors.

Brands can enhance brand loyalty, transparency and customer education with powerful B2C tools, including QR codes, NFC rings plus add blockchain, IoT and robotics.

The Global Circular Network connects products and supply chains to an open source circular economy through an innovative platform that creates reverse logistics value chain connectivity. By combining human-centered design with innovative smart tech tools we connect people and services, plus gather comprehensive circularity LCA data

This empowers brands to transition towards a sustainable circular economy. Our mission is to effectively reduce landfill, emissions, and pollution. Discover the IMPACT we can achieve together through a collaborative network.

START CIRCULARITY NOW. BOOK A Q&A SESSION

With so many DPPs coming onto the market there are key differences that set the Global Circular Network platform apart from other solutions:

The GCN platform is connected with an actual product passport; each product uses a RFiD THREADS®; a 15 cm long, malleable single-encased metal RFID thread that connects to the GCN app. This allows us to emulate the functionality of a physical passport, gathering data as it circulates. The platform goes beyond simple traceability to retain and add new data, reporting on the fibers through to the product's end-of-loop recyclers. The data is collected as the product travels from brand; to customer to R-Cyclers; to recycling - creating a circular economy.

Once data is populated the App creates a unique barcode, QR Code and NFC (by request) to use as a B2C tool to communicate and educate custodians, thus offering a full suite of smart tools with unique identifiers.

RFiD THREADS® can be sewn or slipped into new and recovered products to instantly add them to a circular economy and divert from landfill, incineration and unchecked offshoring - see the IMPACT.

The GCN is creating a global network of local R-Cycle providers who are the integral "middle of circularity". They can connect for free to recover, resell, rent, repair, redesign, remake and repurpose all before a product heads for recycling thus extending its life to save emissions.

Peter Hogan, Veritas Tech. “The RFID Thread product … is simply the most exciting RFID tag that I have seen after selling EAS electronic security and RFID tracking technologies to fashion retailers for over 30 years.” 

l love the work you're doing... I don't see any better way to help digitally power the circular economy for textiles.”  Peter Majeranowski, Circ 

CIRPASS. MANDATORY DPPS IN THE EU
Our DPP is listed on the European Union's mandatory Cirpass DPP legislation set to activate a circular economy for textile products. CEO Alison Jose is a CIRPASS-2 Expert Working Group Partner. 

Textile products are one of 12 end-use products the EU will require DPPs for, and all clothing, homeware and footwear products comprising majority textile materials will be ‘in scope’. Data collection complies with the EU's EcoDesign for Sustainable Products Regulation.

THINK DIFFERENT, BE COLLABORATIVE

Through Global Consortium Partnerships, the Global Circular Network offers the fastest route to developing specialized bulk machinery and accelerating the delivery of affordable, inclusive DPPs for both B2B and B2C markets. Our equitable pricing model ensures that brands and businesses of any size can access an efficient, interconnected circular economy platform. This platform promotes open-source collaboration and fosters connections within local and global circular economy networks.

DATA CAPTURE
Unlimited cloud-based connectivity + associated software accessible via affordable UHF handheld readers and fixed systems.

The platform captures data on repairability, usability, durability, longevity, recyclability and circularity

It captures the 'holy grail' of data; the product's longevity. Includes unique metrics on mitigation of landfill, emissions and pollution. 

The software is interoperable through all 5 stages. Brands can request additional metrics including sequestration to 'up the anti on Impact'

IMPACT RATING CERTIFICATION
The GCN Impact Rating Certification supports brands to provide efficient compliance reporting data including use of circular design strategies, repurposing products at their highest value, support regenerate solutions and promote biodiversity, mitigate landfill, emissions and pollution to support people and planet. Separate to circularity the Certification will show a brands status regarding Modern Slavery Act and Wages.

We provides metrics to map out best-case circular solutions. Brands no longer need to wait for 2030 or use hypothetical data.
