Introduction to the Circular Economy

Over the past three years Australian SME’s have experienced significant impacts on their overheads with regard to dramatically rising costs associated with energy, water and waste. Complimenting this is a change in the expectations of their customers who often closely scrutinise the origins, supply chain and life cycle of products they purchase.

As a consequence, there has been an increased interest in the Circular Economy, which designs products with disassembly and re-use in mind and sources materials as an enabler for extension of life or reuse in closed loop or extended loop applications.
Please join Michael Eales and Grace Ryall from Business Models Inc who launched, co-designed and co-delivered Australia’s first Circular Economy Lab as they provide an overview of Circular Economy basics and guide participants on a journey to transform the way they design, teach, invest and buy in their businesses.
At the conclusion of the event participants will have answered the question: “How might we explore new business models and future collaborative opportunities through experimentation with circular economy design principles?”
