The MODOS circular economy training programme for micro and SME enterprises is suitable for all businesses but is particularly relevant for those from the following sectors: construction and the built environment, food, retail, manufacturing, textiles and fashion, electronics, plastics, and packaging.

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. Supply and production chains operate in ‘closed-loops’ making them less wasteful and more resilient. New business models based around leasing, re-manufacturing, recycling, and up-cycling become possible, saving businesses money and reducing environmental impacts.

Adopting circular economy principles can help business:

  • Save money, reduce waste, and increase resilience
  • Boost competitive advantage and brand reputation
  • Unlock new business opportunities that also help the environment
