2.1.2 Introduction

Course subject(s) Module 2. Business Value in a Circular Economy

We know that without business involvement the transition to a circular economy will not take off. So this episode we learn about how businesses can create value in a circular economy. 


The butterfly diagram is the ‘red thread’ of the course. In this episode you learn about value creation and new business models in a Circular Economy.

We are not yet focusing on one circular loop in particular. Rather, we ask what companies need to do in order to make any of these loops work. In Episode 3 we begin to address the “inner loops” (maintenance and reuse/redistribute).
