Circular Economy Masterclass

This masterclass is an expert deep dive into the building blocks of circular value creation and business models for “sustainable innovation”.

The Circular Economy is more than just recycling. It is the most effective alternative to our linear industrial model of ‘take-make-waste’. This masterclass is an expert deep dive into the building blocks of circular value creation and business models for ”sustainable innovation”. A circular economy aims to be restorative by design. At the core, the objective is to move away from the linear system by designing, using and optimizing product-service-systems and business models for multiple cycles of disassembly and reuse before conventional recycling.
