Transitioning to a circular economy is necessary but we recognise it’s not easy. No business can successfully make that shift alone. That’s where our new business-to-business Directory is going to make a big difference.
It connects businesses seeking circular solutions to businesses that can help design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use and regenerate nature. Now you can find products and services that can help your businesses ‘go circular’, all in one place.
The Directory has been possible due to the support of our partners at the Ministry for the Environment, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, Waste Management and Āmiomio Aotearoa.
At the launch you’ll learn about the Directory’s key features and get a preview of some of the products and services that are listed.
We’ll also be illustrating how circular economy innovators are working with businesses to help them ‘go circular’. They are:
Toby Skilton, founder and General Manager of Mutu Xchange, an online platform that helps organisations share and manage under-used resources.
Rui Peng, co-founder and Managing Director of Critical which recycles plastic waste into construction panels and homeware.
Ingrid Cronin-Knight, GM Strategy, Customer & Sustainability at Waste Management NZ, focuses on solutions to make the best use of resources, minimise waste and reduce impacts on the environment.
Joe Youssef, Chief Encourager at All Heart NZ, an enterprise of hope that specialises in corporate sustainability and community support. A circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems.
