CIRCULAR ECONOMY

THAT IS WHAT CLAUT IS ALL ABOUT

WHAT IS CLAUT?

Claut is a CircuLar AUTomotive platform based on cooperation between chain partners, focusing on the implementation of the Circular Economy principles and values by leading partnership programs.

The automotive industry is one of the most high tech industries, and seven percent of turnover is spent on research and development. However, optimization close the loop to achieve a circular economy (reuse, remanufacturing, recycling) are still in their infancy. The industry is facing more and more pressure through its end customers, peer groups and politicians to take more responsibility to create a sustainable world. The automotive industry struggles to take the circular value and assesses the Circular Economy business models more as a threat than an opportunity. Young start ups take the opportunity and the traditional industry partners seem to shift very slow. CLAUT is founded to support those partners towards those values.

A circular business model
Through cooperation, a circular business model will be created, which is a unique and innovative way to bundle strengths and knowledge throughout the value chain, to make smarter use of materials, modular production, prolonging lifetime and keep up, connect and support or lead the changing need for mobility such as electrification and autonomous driving.

Objective of CLAUT
Preparing, guiding and achieving a circular automotive platform that will ensure increased speed of value chain optimization and drive the opportunities of a circular business model approach.
