Circularity – How to make it work.

Location: The Garden Grønnegaarden, at the Design Museum, Bredgade 68, 1260 København, Danmark

 

The holistic perspective of business models, materials, manufacturing, technology, and scale.

The Danish Circularity Gap report found that Denmark is only 4% circular. This very low number points to the vast number of challenges we face in the transition to circularity.  Most aspects of our current patterns and processes need rethinking to get there.

In this conversation we will talk with three innovative companies that work with upcycling and material innovation, manufacturing and product development and service and logistics solutions, with a high level of technology implementation in most steps. The three companies work with circularity as their foundation – and are gaining scale and traction with their solutions.

 

Our Chief Sales Officer at a:gain, Jesper Wøldike Brandt, will be attending a panel debate along side Anders Jepsen, CEO of NORNORM, Jarl Engelbrecht Vindnæs, Founder of Stykka and Frederik Thrane, Moderator of Lifestyle & Design Cluster.
