Learn about the Circular Economy from leading experts

Supported by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the Centre for Circular Economy is a world-leading research centre that has delivered dynamic and collaborative training to over 2,000 leaders and managers since 2018.

We are engaged with over 200 global businesses and work with the leading experts in the field of the circular economy.

Using this experience, we are keen to help you understand the challenges and opportunities of going circular, how the circular economy supports a transition to net zero and helps address wider business sustainability challenges.

Working with us, you will be supported on your circular economy journey by experienced practitioners within an inclusive, peer-to-peer learning environment. Our success lies in helping you develop a customised actionable plan to create value from circular opportunities within your business.

Register for this *NEW* four-week Masterclass which has been developed exclusively for SMEs and their partners by dedicated practitioners from the University of Exeter, home to world-class research and expert academics who are leaders in their field.

This online course will enable you to recognise the opportunities the circular economy offers your business. We provide the tools to create and capture value from the circular economy, achieving competitive advantage and sustainable business growth.

The course will equip you with:

  • Insights from real world practitioners charting their story of success, how they got started on their circular journey and overcame obstacles along the way.
  • In depth case studies showing different circular business models and how circularity works up close
  • Tools and resources to get you started, implementing and scaling new opportunities
  • Immediately applicable learning, through weekly challenges designed to move you towards your own customised action plan for your business
  • Mentoring from dedicated learning partners and active peer-to-peer interaction

This flexible course is delivered online and accessible to suit your schedule, allowing you to balance busy work-life schedules, with opportunities for live and direct interaction. Additionally, there are live one hour webinars each week scheduled at 4pm UK time, with recordings made available.
