Resource Productivity & Circular Economy

a more cirular approach would increase resource productivity by 3%

Our Circular Economy and Resource Productivity campaign is accelerating the transition to a circular economy. 

The Circular Office initiative brings businesses together to learn, share, and try out new ideas towards greater circularity in their offices – seeking to retain the value of materials by keeping them in circulation and eliminating waste. Opportunities range from refurbishing and reusing office furniture and equipment, to reducing and recycling food and packaging, and achieving greater resource circularity in the design and refurbishment/repurposing of offices.

Commit to being a Circular Office Champion

  • Take at least one step towards greater circularity in your workplace
  • Champion the campaign with at least one supplier or customer
  • Share your learning with our network
