about 1GNITE


When it comes to finding innovative ways to help corporations be more efficient, become circular, and sustain a competitive edge… we are all in.

Transitioning to the circular economy is not just about reducing waste or carbon emissions…

It is about closing the loop on raw material sourcing. It’s about changing product design, logistics distribution, and sales and post-consumptions to create business opportunities, ensure environmental and social benefits, and sustain a competitive edge.

At 1GNITE, we understand the demands and constraints faced by mid-sized and large corporations and we are experts at identifying ways to increase efficiencies, transform waste into opportunities and resources.
