Antea Group Design for Circularity Workshops


Published on

If you work for a company that makes durable products, then instead of selling the product, you can maximize revenues by renting it, maintaining it, upgrading it, reselling it multiple times, and then comprehensively mining it for usable parts and materials. When companies offer customers better-designed, service-based systems, deploying the "borrow-use-return" model instead of "take-use-waste," customers will perceive the offer to be a better way of getting what they need.

Let Antea Group show you how and give your organization a common language to talk about it with a customized Design-for-Circularity Workshop.
