The Zero Waste Consultant
Innovate like Nature does
because All Matter Counts
Transformative Pragmatic Solutions
which will increase your
applied to all your material flows.
Our Industrial system is undergoing rapid transformation due to Breakthrough Technology development, Climate Change and Scarcity of global Raw Resources. These trends are increasing affecting risk profiling of Business and regional Economies.
The Transition towards a Circular industrial system offers opportunities for resource efficiency, effective manufacturing, lower unit costs and product diversification. The challenge is creating resilient Business Models based on (Eco)Innovative solutions with Zero Negative environmental impact.
The good news, our Spaceship Earth has solved many of the sustainable challenges already. Emulating nature is proving to be the direction where new innovations and business models are emerging from. The biggest challenge is how to be resourceful and innovative in creating profitable innovative business models which are good for society, business and our Spaceship.
Zero Waste, Total Productivity of Matter, is the next Paradigm Shift where No Pollution exists and only Cash flows.
Our Systemic Sustainable Design Thinking approach
& Focus Themes
We think about Zero Waste as an business opportunity, from Money to Matter and Energy and back again, Because all Matter Counts. This is our different perspective which is a tailor made approach.
The Zero Waste Consultant bridges (Eco)Logical Thinking with (Eco)Nomical Doing. We apply knowledge from Natures Patterns to develop Innovation Strategies which offer lower manufacturing process costs and lower unit costs.
System Thinking lies at the heart of what we do. The Circular Economy requires a revaluation of Value Chains and Breakthrough technologies. We focus converting your negative (environmental) costs into positive cash flow’s.
A visionary pragmatic route map is what we envision to achieve. Visionary because you understand the market & technology trends. Pragmatic because you have clear design guidelines how to manoeuvre your organisation into the Future. Tailormade because Every Business Counts.
Profitable, Circular and Innovative
Your profitability is your main management concern. Top priorities are reducing costs and improving production efficiency rates. You are doing more with less as resources are becoming scarce. Being Sustainable is a nice to have or is it?
We will challenge you to look at your main environmental concerns as business opportunities. It is evident when wasted matters can be transformed it lowers purchase costs, increases income cash flows and increases profit margins
Our (Eco)Innovation methodology helps capitalizing business opportunities and increasing your (regional) competitiveness. It will help to get control of your Materials, Water and Energy supply chains. In the process you also are adapted to any Climate policy and requirements because your value chain is ready and flexible.
Valorizing of Matter is what we are good at. We assist you in becoming sustainable by design because it just offers better business opportunities. Doing the right thing, because all your Matter Counts

Looking forward to collaborate
At Van Hall Larenstein (VHL) in Leeuwarden in the Netherlands, we provide the teaching and learning program International Business and natural resource management, as a minor option within Bachelor education. Our aim is to support young professionals in a world in transition, from fossil fuel based linear economy to a sustainable, renewable, fair and circular combined economy, ecology and society based on natural capital. Alexander Prinsen inspires students, teachers and other VHL colleagues to trust and embrace the uncertainty and the unknown future. He connects economy, ecology and sociology to rethink a whole system that creates values in multiple facets. From fair business earning from CO2 emissions to the important role of micro-organisms to revive deteriorated sea coast and wasted arid land. For me as coordinator of this minor, I learned probably the most. I am able to pass on my vision on sustainability in new found words and stronger images to other students, colleagues, managers, friends and family.”

In April 2018 I’ve organised a seminar about business opportunities with plant compounds in a circular biobased society. Alexander was one of the three speakers at that seminar. Several participants of the seminar gave me the same feedback about Alexander: “he gave an enthusiastic and eye-opening presentation”. And that is what he did: He gave insights from another (than our regular) point of view about the possibilities of biomass, residual streams (waste) and nature. Thank you for your contribution Alexander. – Willem Kemmers, program manager Bioboost –
Voor betrokken collega’s bij de provincie Zuid-Holland op het landbouw dossier (klimaat, stikstof en voedsel) heb ik samen met Alexander een workshop Kringloopsystemen duurzame landbouw op 27/02/2020 georganiseerd. Ik had de wens om in kleine groepjes met concreet casussen uit de Zuid-Hollandse landbouwpraktijk en onze duurzame proeftuinen direct aan de slag te gaan. En dat heeft goed uitgepakt. Alexander heeft ons goed geholpen om anders te doen kijken naar de verschillende thema’s en problematieken en met nieuwe invalshoek te komen. Ik heb daarna veel complimenten gehad over de aanpak en insteek. – Hans Koot, strategisch adviseur opgave Circulair Zuid-Holland bij Provincie Zuid-Holland-
Yesterday I attended to an interesting webinar of Alexander Prinsen about Introduction to Zero Waste Solutions. Thank you Alexander to share your ideas and your vision. Two things now are to me more obvious: 1. the nature is simple: it manages to hold life in all his shapes based on few and simple mechanisms, 2. the nature is generous: we have below the eyes the answer to all our questions and needs. – Anonymous –
Alexander and I sat down for a coffee to discuss his approach to business development and its application to my business plan. To say it was inspiring is an understatement. His zero waste approach, which goes far beyond waste management in the traditional sense, generated new insights and ideas. Key takeaway: focus on scope not scale! Highly valuable.
