Training: Accelerating Your Circular Economy Game Plan

Executive training in Barcelona on 10 & 11 October 2017
Breaking down the $4.5 trillion potential of the circular economy and capture company-specific value remains a vital challenge for many organizations. The circular economy is very broad as a concept – at Finch & Beak, we found that companies have trouble finding a concrete starting point to identify tangible business opportunities within their business and are lacking a common understanding of the topic.


To help you get going and speed up your action plan, Finch & Beak hosts an executive training on 10-11 October in Barcelona, Spain. The aim is to create a better understanding of the circular economy and how to leverage its opportunities.

What you need to know

  • Purpose: Further explore the topic and work on developing specific skills required to move ahead in the circular economy.
  • Target audience: Senior professionals in the field of strategy, sustainability and innovation. For the best leverage of the program, companies are encouraged to send teams of two or more colleagues.
  • Dates: Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 October 2017.
  • Location: Hotel H10 Casanova, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes 559, Barcelona, Spain.
  • Costs: € 1,250 per participant (excl. VAT), including dinner and lunch.

Frontrunner Case: Interface

Real-world input for the day comes in the form of a case by modular carpet leader Interface. Geanne van Arkel, Interface’s Head of Sustainable Development, will join us to present the company’s approach to circular economy and to introduce the case. The video below provides an example of how Interface has implemented circularity into its operations.
