Circular Economy Workshops extended




After the success of the Auckland session Catalyst, together with the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) and thinkstep, will soon host circular economy workshops “Revolutionising Resource Use” in Tauranga and Wellington.

The circular economy philosophy resonates perfectly with the Catalyst Ltd strapline “creating more from less” and we are now offering services that seek to foster this successful model. Presenting our new circular economy canvas at the SBN conference is a great opportunity to spread the word further in the regions.

Speakers from diverse businesses will tell their stories and identify key success factors of the process.

Local speakers will also be invited to share their experiences and hopefully foster engagement from participants.

After the speakers, Catalyst and our partners at thinkstep will present our circular economy canvas and facilitate a workshop to help attendees understand different aspects of circular economy. This includes:

  • Understanding environmental impacts over the full life cycle of their product/service
  • Generating ideas that will address those impacts
  • Identifying barriers to set these ideas up
  • Identifying infrastructure needed and stakeholders to be approached

Finally, the event concludes with networking opportunities over drinks and nibbles.
