Searious Business

What we offer

Future-proofing your business

Searious Business offers a step-by-step approach whereby clients can choose how far they’d like to take our services. We offer everything from consulting in materials and resource efficiency to innovation product development.

Once you fill in your contact details, we offer a free online Plastic Scan and if we think we can help you, we’ll schedule a call so we can walk you through our services and answer any questions you might have.

After we get to know your company needs, we recommend or you can choose between our three types of specialised sessions, listed below. After the session is done, we build you a personalised recommendation with three proposed solutions. You can choose to take these solutions forward internally, or take us on board to help you.


Step 1 (optional):

Plastic scan

Take our free online plastic scan to see how we can help you. The plastic scan helps us understand if and how we can improve sustainability in your business, informing the following steps of our collaboration. It also helps you decide if you’d like to take the next steps with us. This scan can be extended in-person if preferred, for a more in-depth overview.

The online Plastic Scan consists of 10 questions. Completing it takes about 10 minutes, after which you can immediately identify potential business opportunities and improvements for your company. Your score is sent to you by e-mail, for internal use only, and includes your ranking on a scale from A-F. Along with your score, each participant receives 5 ‘tips & tricks’ on how to improve on their use of plastic to earn a higher ranking...and the Searious Business team is always available to help.

Step 2:

contact us

Send us an email to let us know what your needs are.


Step 3:

Choose your session

Choose a type of ideation session that matches your needs. For each of our workshops, the aim is to evaluate plastics use in the value chain, rethink the use of plastic, identify opportunities to eliminate single-use plastics through re-use, recycling and reverse logistics solutions.

If you’re looking for something else, contact us and we will see how we can help. For example, we also offer feasibility workshops to determine the feasibility for any sustainable innovation ideas you might already have in mind.
