Join the webinar by Kirsten Steunenberg MSc, who compared the environmental impact of a circular business model to a linear model in her master thesis in collaboration with Industrial Ecology at Delft University of Technology and Leiden University, the Netherlands.
Key topics and takeaways from the webinar are:
- A circular business model is not inherently more sustainable than the linear model;
- A short introduction into the LCA method and LCA results;
- The effects of different types of users and their behaviour on the environmental impact of the circular business model;
- Key conditions to reduce the environmental impact of a circular business model are: extending the washing machine’s lifetime and pushing customers towards environmentally friendly laundry behaviour;
