Masterclass: guiding companies to better understand circular strategies
To innovate for a circular economy, companies need to make changes on many different levels: they need to redesign products, innovate their business models, and drive changes in their wider supply chains and ecosystems. This can be difficult to organise. That is why Jan Konietzko created the Circularity Deck, a card deck-based tool that helps people in companies better understand the circular strategies and the levels at which they can be applied.
To help guide sustainability managers, entrepreneurs and designers through the circularity deck, Jan recently created a Masterclass together with Impact Hub Amsterdam.
In this Masterclass, Jan walks you through the Circularity Deck and explains:
- What a circular economy is, and why it is important,
- The key circular economy strategies, and the levels on which you can apply them,
- Insights on navigating three key processes to implement the circular strategies: collaboration, experimentation, and platformisation.
Jan Konietzko is a Research Fellow at Maastricht Sustainability Institute and is a member of the project Circular X, where he develops tools and methods that can help companies drive sustainable innovation.
