Mastering the Circular Economy

Start your circular journey today! The Circular Economy is based on the concept of circular value creation, a truly circular economy where waste is minimized, products are used for longer and resources are reused in closed loops.

Participants will learn how the circular economy is the foundation for a more sustainable future. Together we examine resources and current production routes, explore material alternatives and the impact on quality, durability and material flows. We learn about the so-called R-principles and apply them to find out how e.g. industry can increase their added value and be even more responsive to their customers' needs.
