Come along and get inspired by a new business model thats aims to (re)design products to give them more residual value, and to reduce costs associated with the product value chain: the circular business model.

Risks arising from our current economic model are forcing new, circular business models to emerge that will revolutionise the way we design, produce and consume all manner of services and products.

Philips, the electronics giant, has pioneered in this field by developing circular business models for both healthcare and lighting. Expectations for this project are high at Philips; they predict that new services will emerge and performance delivery will improve thanks to the new model. What's more, all this is done in a way that helps protect the environment.
