Circular Design Acceleration for Businesses
CIRCO has made it their mission to drive the development of circular economies around the world. In collaboration with the Technical University of Delft, they've developed a unique methodology to help entrepreneurs and creative professionals take their first step towards circularity. This methodology is an actionable framework for participants to learn hands-on how to (re)design their products, services, and business models for circular business.

As the CIRCO Hub for Singapore, we at Chemistry leverage our expertise in strategic design to support and guide individuals, teams, and organisations in an accelerated push towards circular business.
About the CIRCO Method
The CIRCO methodology is based on the 'Products That Last' academic framework from TU Delft. It introduces the five circular business models alongside six circular design strategies applied across different industries. CIRCO then expands on this by turning it into an actionable framework with practical design tools and case studies to contextualise it for business.

What to Expect
Under the guidance of certified facilitators, you will
• learn about the circular economy and its broader impact,
• explore real-life business challenges,
• learn hands-on how to (re)design your products, services, business models for circularity, and
• make concrete first steps for your business case.

CIRCO training runs are conducted over 5 online workshop sessions via video conferencing platforms such as Zoom or MS Teams.

CIRCO Circular Design in Action
Accelerate your business’s transition to a circular economy with this hands-on Circular Design Sprint. The circular economy is a transformative approach to sustainability. It aims to move away from the traditional linear “take-make-waste” model and instead focuses on keeping resources in use for as long as possible, extracting maximum value, and minimising waste and environmental impact.

The 3-day design sprint is based on the academic framework (CIRCO) developed by the Technical University, Delft, the Netherlands. The programme equips participants with actionable frameworks and tools to reimagine products, services, and processes in a sustainable way.

The sprint format provides a supportive environment for participants to explore circular design strategies and business models relevant to their own organisation and co-create innovative solutions. Under the guidance of industry experts, real-life business challenges are explored and concrete steps for new circular initiatives are mapped out.
