Innovate Within a Circular Economy™ is a workshop explaining why a linear economy no longer works and why businesses have to make the shift soon. This workshop helps you to understand the characteristics of your current operating model, highlights potential risks and suggests avenues for solutions. Step-by-step you will be asked to move away from a linear perspective, and come up with a new value proposition for your customers and partners. The Circular Business Model Innovation Map™ (or CBMI Map™) will be the backbone of the workshop discussions and interactions.
We live in a world of scarcity and we must adapt. Signs of resource depletion are getting stronger, and there is growing evidence of a search for new economic models.
1. How are we going to address the upcoming lack of resources?
2. Why should we look at a circular model versus our current ‘take-make-waste' economy?
3. How can companies and policy scale it while ensuring prosperity for all?
4. Can some of today's fundamental shifts in technology and consumer behaviour be used to accelerate the transition?
