The circular economy is a term that most of us have heard or use in our daily work on sustainability. It is now firmly established in various sectors and industries around the world.
This concept is more than just a trend - it will shape the way most parts of our economy operate over time. In a world of finite resources and increasingly climate-conscious consumers, business as usual is no longer viable.
So how are companies meeting this challenge and what circular options can you adopt?
Join us for this masterclass to understand the key concepts of the circular economy and the emerging new business models. Learn about the life cycle approach, how to conduct a life cycle assessment and finally, the implications of moving from a linear to a circular approach.

Marisa Agrasut - Managing Partner - The Inceptery
A practitioner, facilitator and enabler, for the last 18 years, Marisa has been working with teams helping them understand, apply and leverage tools, frameworks and methodologies to optimise value creation. Her sustainability journey began with permaculture in 2009, continued with a reduced-carbon, circularity and systems-based venture in 2010, and in 2015 emerged her vision for The Inceptery - a sustainability-led innovation firm working at the edge of conventional boundaries and assumptions, challenging notions of “success” in our current paradigm. Their work focuses on helping future oriented companies embed and further the business resilience imperative into their organisations.
A graduate in Strategic Design Management, she harbours a lifetime fascination with the limitless power of intentionality and externalising creative processes collectively - meeting at the intersect of where we sense-make, gain insight, find needs, opportunities and originate ideas; to bring about new consciousness, solutions, businesses and technology to improve human-planetary conditions profitably.
