We grew up in a linear economy – take, make, use, dispose. As the climate crisis makes regular headlines and initiates new laws, we are working to create a circular economy.
Reuse, repair, recover, recycle, design, make, use.
Our mindsets are slowly changing. Individuals challenge companies to source sustainably, reuse or repurpose instead of waste. First of all, we all need to be proactive rather than reactive. Even more so as a company, which can have a big impact when it takes responsibility of its actions. The best time to implement changes is when big changes are happening already. Take the opportunity when relocating/redesigning/restructuring to design with a circular workplace in mind.
Other than the obvious of reducing your environmental impact, desining a circular workplace comes with many other benefits…
Cost saving. Being circular can reduce procurement and operational costs. Purchasing refurbished goods, purchasing fewer materials and paying lower waste management fees willl reduce costs. Being agile will prevent the costs of replacing or reconfiguring for future changes.
Corporate social responsibility. Donating existing products to charities to reuse in their offices will create a community and engage stakeholders who believe in brand values and purpose.
