Joining forces is key
when working toward a circular economy

Cécile van Oppen, co-founder of Copper8

Copper8 contributes to the realisation of sustainable breakthroughs in the manufacturing industry by stimulating unconventional ways of working together. Their passion for sustainability rubs off on other organisations whom they inspire to interconnect disciplines and value chains. Copper8 has also been involved in various iconic projects of circular economy and circular procurement.


Cécile is co-founder of the Copper8 agency and as an advisor she is involved in realising societal breakthroughs. She is a true idealist, but still down-to-earth. Her broad academic background – she has studied development economics, international affairs and to round things off, she did a minor in maths – enables Cécile to approach a problem from multiple viewpoints but also to come up with a workable solution. Cécile is also co-author of the book ‘Circular Business: CollaborateandCirculate’.
