Scope Matters systemically accelerate material, technology and product innovation within the planetary boundaries, sustainable, circular and profitable. We apply knowledge from natures patterns to develop innovation strategies which offer lower manufacturing process costs and lower unit costs. In order to do so we bridges (eco)logical thinking with (eco)nomical doingSystem thinking lies at the heart of what we do. The circular (eco)nomy requires a revaluation of value chains and breakthrough technologies. We focus converting your negative (environmental) costs into positive cash flow’s. 


Our Industrial system is undergoing rapid transformation due to breakthrough technology, climate change and scarcity of global raw resources. These trends are increasing affecting risk profiling of business and regional economies, therefore the need for resilience is increasing.

The transition offers opportunities for resource efficiency, effective manufacturing, lowering unit costs and create product diversification. The challenge is creating resilient business models based on zero negative environmental impact based on (eco)innovative solutions.

The good news, our spaceship earth solved many of the challenges already. Emulating nature is proving to be the direction for new innovations and business models. 

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.

Full valorisation of matter, provides no external costs and only cash flows.


Innovation strategies

(systemic) Innovation strategies
We assist in creating systemic better products, lower dependence on energy, water and materials based on a whole value chain approach.

Zero waste valorisation strategies
We assist in solving wasted matter flows by identifying new cash-flows inside and outside your current value chain.

(eco)Technology strategies
We assist in applying nature's principles to identify new efficiency and effectiveness solutions to improve help lower unit costs, lower energy and water dependence and redefine materials.

Material/Energy/Water strategies
We assist in finding opportunities suited for your material, energy and water innovation programs

Climate adaptation
We assist in creating systemic climate adaptation strategies to ensure your business and municipalities have a sustainable future. 

Regional development

Regional development strategies
We assist public organisation with creating systemic strategies to incorporate the development strategies for a better, healthy and thriving community.

Governance & leadership

Align SDG's & Sustainability reporting
We assist how to align reporting requirements with business strategy and your licence to operate.

Leadership (governance & people)
We assist in understanding the systemic relationships of natural science and tthe opportunities it provides to increase your ability to sustain.


Your profitability is your main 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. 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 all 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


Agriculture / Soil / Crops / Valorisation biomass

Fashion (leather value chain)
A client in the leather industry wanted more insight about the impact of their whole value chain. We identified possible systemic intervention areas and opportunities to lower unit costs. 

Agriculture (bio stimulants)
For a agricultural startup we were asked to reflect and cocreate how to improve their technological development (microbial, fermentation, process technology and go to market strategy)

Greenhouse / Horticulture 
Finding applications for plant-stem juice, a leftover stream from the fiber valorisation, using a fermentative approach.

Greenhouse / Horticulture
In collaboration with a horticulture organization we created a valorisation & biorefinery roadmap for the plant waste flows. 

Agriculture (farmer)
For a African farmer we conducted an systemic review of their whole material flow and identified potential new product cash flows.

Technology / Production 

Water company
Provided interventions with their engineers how to create more future proof business models and solutions how to lower OPEX and CAPEX costs.

PHA valorisation (biobased materials)
With an University and School of Applied Science we identified improvements to the current PHA process with more cash-flows opportunities.      

Production Company
Evaluating the product and material impact and creating a more future proof business model.

Car industry supplier
For this client we mapped their materials environmental impact and helped to identify areas for improvement and possible new business models.

 Build Environment

Build Environment
A client asked us to conduct co-creation sessions to identified how to generate more value from sport accommodations by integrating water, energy and clean air as new business models.

Urban Planning
With an architecture client we collaborate how integrating natures principles will change urban planning to benefit climate adaptation, local energy systems and local water systems. 

 Financial Services

Finance and banking
A risk management team of a large bank asked us for a dialogue session on how to adapt to future trends and regulatory requirements from a sustainable lens.


Scope Matter is founded by Alexander Prinsen. He believes that business can be more profitable and do good at the same time, when they adapt an innovative mindset based on natural science and systems thinking.

We are a small boutique consultancy based in Rotterdam and operating globally.   

Doing the right thing, because all your Matter Counts


Dialogue, Consultation & Acceleration for a deep dive. Together we explore how physics, biology and biochemistry can help your business models and value chains. Explorative and high in content.
Highly recommended by many!

Co-creating with your teams. This can be through a Masterclass, Keynote with intervention session or what you prefer. It will stretch minds and energize. It works best when we can work directly on existing business challenges to maximize the impact.

(Eco) Innovation roadmapping with strategy/management/board teams. The outcomes can be a preliminary innovation roadmap, business impact assessment, cost reduction opportunities and/or business development connections. Tailored to your needs.

The real deal. Together we will bridge (eco)logical thinking with (eco)nomic doing. The transformation process will help align your social, (eco)logical, techno-logical and (eco)nomic vision. It is a pragmatic visionary approach to solve your “how to” questions.
