Hear a testimonial from a past participant, VivaGreen:
With the European Union introducing new policy and regulation for a low-carbon economy and the Irish government bringing in new Green Procurement standards, Irish businesses need to understand and adapt to the transition from a linear to a circular economy. Doing so will help to future proof your business!
What is the circular economy? Our current economic model is based on a linear ‘take-make-waste’ approach, which is costly for businesses and bad for the environment. By contrast, a circular economy is efficient and environmentally sustainable. In a circular economy, products, components and materials are kept in use for as long as possible. The principles of a circular economy and circular production models can be instrumental in exploring the opportunities to transform for example what might once have been considered as a waste material into a secondary raw material, an approach that can increase efficiencies and even develop new secondary by-products and market opportunities. Supply and production chains essentially operate in ‘closed-loops’ making them less wasteful and more resilient. Enterprise Europe Network and the Sustainable Cork Programme at Cork Chamber have teamed up with MODOS to deliver this circular economy training programme to micro, small and medium sized enterprises. MODOS is a joint initiative of Dublin City Council and the Waste Management Plan Lead Authority (WMPLA).
