Building a Circular Economy Business

Circular Economy
Level 3

A guided process to building circular economy principles and practices into organisations wanting to operate out of a sustainable foundation. It includes a model for managing the shift to a circular economy, and tools to facilitate conversation and collaboration.


Organisations can become more resilient by adopting a circular economy approach, aiming to retain as much value as possible from products, parts and materials while minimising waste.

Green Street’s Circular Economy process aims to get conversations going between and within organisations, to encourage innovative circular economy activity. This exchange helps participants consider each other’s outputs/inputs, and identify opportunities for cycling materials in, out or up.
