How does Circular Economy revolutionise your approach to product and service design?

“I can highly recommend Circular Design Sprint to any company that wants to take their circular economy mindset and capability onto to the next level.”

Jaanus Tamm, manager, Nefab, Viro

What is it all about?

In the future, all products sold within the EU must meet circular economy requirements. This means that pioneering companies are taking their processes, material choices, and product features to a new level, shaping the customer experience based on circular design principles. We tailor the contents of the Sprint based on an initial assessment to ensure that it best serves your specific goals. 

Who benefits from the sprint?

Circular Design Sprint is an excellent fit for R&D directors, designers, professionals working in customer interface and marketing, and anyone tasked with ensuring that the company's product and service offering is designed to build circular & regenerative futures. As a result, depending on your specific needs, you will get a circular product/service concept or prototype, circular design guidelines to support your design process, or a systematically built compelling customer experience to foster circular engagement. 

"The new EU Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation sets circularity requirements for almost all physical goods placed on the EU market. Now is the time for businesses to get ready."

Paula Fontell, CEO & Founder
