Unseen by many, a revolution has begun in the way that Institutions procure and manage their assets.  The Circular Economy is enabling Institutions to meet ambitious landfill reduction targets, address pressure from students, alumni and academics for decisive action to tackle climate change and the plastics problem. 

Through a case study of Circular Economy office furniture, this workshop showed how disruptive sustainable business models are saving Institutions money, reducing their environmental impact and generating social value.

This session was part of Influence, the EAUC’s 2019 Annual Conference. All resources from the day can be found here.
