Practical circular economy applications were introducted by cases from Adidas & Parley and Umicore’s rechargeable car batteries.
Geanne van Arkel, Head of Sustainable Development at Interface, presented the company’s journey towards becoming one of the most sustainable companies in the world. The modular carpet company has set itself the very ambitious target of becoming restorative in its production by 2020. Afterwards, participants were challenged to develop a value proposition and business model for circular solutions that enable Interface Spain to contribute to the company’s global objective of having reuse and recycling options available in all regions by 2020.
From the training and case-work, six key focus points emerged for successful development and implementation of circular business models.
The attached download provides the flow of the training program in the form of a booklet, including information on the circular economy, Value Proposition Design, circular business models and the Business Model Canvas.
