To ensure the continuous supply of the increasingly scarce raw materials that are needed to make the products we use every day, we need a more sustainable approach to waste and resource management.
This two-course program in Sustainable Resource Management offers practical knowledge of the circular economy, recycling, refurbishment and remanufacturing as a means of identifying new solutions and business opportunities in this field.
In the first course, you will explore the basic concepts of the circular economy and their implementation from various perspectives: how businesses can create value by reusing and recycling products; how designers can come up with amazingly clever solutions; and how to apply systems thinking to the transition to the circular economy.
In the second course, we will look at the potential benefits of circular procurement and how recycling technologies and more efficient ways of collecting and recycling critical raw materials (CRMs) can make your business and production more resource resilient.
If you are looking for ways to upskill yourself and become a professional who not only creates great products but contributes to a sustainable management of natural resources – this is the program for you!
