Good Cases

Products | Services | Policy & Society

 

How have others managed “to make the existing (business) model obsolete” and become circular? Why are they still successful in the market? What have they reached? And what are accompanying political frameworks, cooperation models or movements on local, national or even international levels that have supported this?

We have collected inspiring cases for you (mainly from the Baltic Sea region) with background information, interviews and talks, and illustrative media.
