The Circular Economy fosters business innovation and sustainable well-being. It involves shifting from our take-make-waste linear economy to a circular one with closed loops that maximize the use and value of raw materials and products and employ renewable energy sources. A “strong” Circular Economy capable of operating within ecological limits embraces a service-based model of consumption – sharing, renting and recycling, instead of owning. Materials are not destroyed at end-of-life, but are used to make new products over and over again. In this course, students learn the principles and practices of a Circular Economy drawing from leading innovators in BC and around the world. Students undertake an individual consumption challenge and follow a step-by-step process to develop a Circular Business Strategy. Guest speakers share insights about the challenges and opportunities to advance circularity in their businesses and organizations.
