1. Circular Fashion Workshop.
Want to make your employees more aware of what circularity means and how a product can be produced circularly? In the Circular Fashion Workshop, we will walk you through every step of producing a circular product or service and working with a circular fashion system that suits your business. We also help you find out if you can validly make circular claims, which also is important when communicating about your new product/service.
The duration of this workshop varies from half a day to a full day, depending on your needs and wishes.
2. Sustainable Materials Tool.
How do I choose the right sustainable materials and how do I set sustainable goals? That is where our Sustainable Materials Tool comes in. We create online personalized tools for your company, based on lifecycle analysis data (LCAs), that will help you score your materials from cradle to gate and cradle to cradle. The tools, which we will create for each product group, can easily be incorporated in your daily work activities without having to dive into the extensive theories yourself. Our tool has proven to be time efficient and enables buyers/designers make more sustainable decisions. Whether you’rea buyer, product manager, stylist or designer, this tool will help you make significant steps towards your sustainability goals. Based on the four different classes of materials, managers can develop SMART KPI’s and, in such a way, work towards the progression of your sustainable business strategy.
Of course, it is important to fully understand how these tools work. We can explain how to work with these tools both online and offline. This will take approximately2 hours. There is also a possibility to go deeper into the LCA methods, enabling your team to make their own calculations. The duration of that trajectory is a working day.
