Designing for circularity – case examples from Finland
Up to 80 per cent of a product’s lifetime environmental impacts are locked in at the design stage. Learn how Finnish forerunner companies apply circular design in minerals, textiles, chemicals and food.
Time: Thursday 1 June at 13:00–14:00 EEST (UTC+3)
Join us to learn from real-life examples how to innovate and develop disruptive circular-by-design concepts and operations and how to support their upscaling. We will hear about chemical products and processes from Kiilto Oy hosted by VTT; textiles from Emmy Clothing Company Ltd and Nordic Bioproducts Group Ltd hosted by Syke and Aalto University; circular minerals hosted by Geological Survey of Finland; and food industry from Valio hosted by Luke.
This session is open to everyone but especially targeted to designers, business leaders and policymakers.
