Innovative Economic Models

From 2018 to 2019
Which innovative economic models should we support from a government perspective?  And in what ways?  In order to get a sound voice in the debate on innovative economic models, the Federal Council for Sustainable Development ordered TML to conduct this study.
However, there are no clear boundaries between the ‘circular’ economy and the more ‘classical, linear economy’, and some of the innovative economic models are still at a preliminary stage.  Therefore, we decided to broaden our perspective on the matter and asked ourselves whether there are no ‘no regret’ measures to make our mobility system more sustainable.
These ‘no-regret’ measures would be measures which could be taken in order to guide society into the good direction.  These type of measures would also allow to push the more ‘classical’ models into a more sustainable direction; rather than promoting just one or some of the preliminary or lesser-used innovative models.
In order to establish these ‘no regret’-measures, we investigated which factors could possibly influence the society and the economic models.  In order to further investigate the impacts of IEM, we also conducted a literature review; some case studies; and a couple of interviews. We put the focus on car- and ridesharing; with some points of concern regarding the platform economy.  Based on the results, we formulated some tools for a sustainable mobility policy.
