Do you want to contribute to a more sustainable society? Tackle the challenges in the transition towards a circular economy? In this course you will analyse what it takes to create a circular economy including sustainable supply chains.

Circular economy challenge

The transition towards a circular economy is one of the biggest challenges in order to create a more sustainable society. This transition requires an interdisciplinary approach, combining socio-technical, managerial, and environmental considerations.

Valuable resources often end up as waste. We challenge you to find and analyse examples of this in your own environment. You could consider possible solutions to reduce or recycle waste, but you soon realise that waste is not the only problem. Precious materials such as copper, gold and phosphorus are gradually disappearing. Water is becoming scarce, pollution of water and air is massive and a lot of food is thrown away.

Right now we design products from cradle to grave: from production to consumption to waste, which is a linear model. But we should design products from cradle to cradle: in a closed loop whereby they don’t become waste, but valuable resources again. And when we start thinking in circles, we might as well try to reinvent not just supply chains, but entire systems.

Because that’s what we have been doing with sustainability: we have been departing from the status quo, while cradle to cradle and circular pushes us to think outside the box.

Conventional understanding of sustainability proposes activities defined in terms of decreasing and reducing, such as ‘zero footprint’, ‘zero waste’, reduction of pollution, reduction of energy consumption. The focus is on reducing negative impacts. We call this eco-efficiency, which is often seen as a goal in itself – we can keep doing what we do, just strive to do it less.

Cradle to Cradle celebrates abundance; it recognises that people, just like ants and trees, are abundant and have a large impact on their environment. The challenge is to make this impact a positive one and we invite you to join this challenge!

Systems approach to circular economy

In this course, we therefore take a systems approach to the circular economy, considering different stakeholder perspectives, their incentive structures, and their impacts on circular alternatives.

The circular solutions will be identified by technological assessment using applied as well as emerging technologies. Since identifying and evaluating potential circular alternatives based on quantitative techniques is key in achieving sustainable solutions, you will also learn how to use life cycle assessment and agent-based modelling to assess the socio-technical and manageable challenges and environmental benefits of alternative solutions.

By integrating all perspectives in a case study, you will learn how to comprehensively and critically assess strategies to transition towards a circular economy.

Our global society is not sustainable. We all know about the challenges we’re facing: waste, climate change, resource scarcity, loss of biodiversity. At the same time, we want to sustain our economies and offer opportunities for a growing world population. This course is about providing solutions we really believe in: a Circular Economy.

In this course we explore the Circular Economy: how businesses can create value by reusing and recycling products, how designers can come up with amazingly clever solutions, and how you can contribute to make the Circular Economy happen. 

You will learn to re-think the economic system you’re experiencing every day, and act upon it. Be a leader in this major paradigm shift! Shape a more circular future together with our global network.

The course is led by TU Delft and co-created with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Sustainability.

Ebranlées par les crises financières et économiques mondiales, de plus en plus d’entreprises consacrent des ressources importantes à leurs politiques de responsabilité sociétale. Mais qu’est-ce que la responsabilité sociétale d’une entreprise (RSE) ? Les parties prenantes aux activités de l’entreprise sont-elles réellement intéressées par la RSE ? Si oui, comment les entreprises devraient-elles communiquer avec ces parties prenantes ? Dans le climat actuel d’incertitude, la RSE est un facteur critique d’évolution voire de révolution du monde des affaires.

Si vous êtes intéressé(e) par les relations entre le monde des affaires et la société, que vous soyez manager ou employé(e), dans une grande ou une plus petite entreprise, ou dans le secteur public, que vous soyez professeur ou étudiant, ce cours est fait pour vous ! Le contenu de ce cours est également accessible pour tous les citoyens désireux de poser des choix plus éclairés de consommation.

Ce cours aborde la RSE de deux manières:

  • Comme une invitation à la réflexion sur les pratiques des entreprises.
  • Comme une source d’innovation et un moyen de gérer à la fois une compétition intense, des demandes pour un développement plus durable et un changement de paradigme au niveau de la gouvernance internationale.

En présentant les analyses et expériences d’experts en RSE issus tant du monde académique que de la sphère professionnelle, ce cours invite les managers, les consommateurs et les citoyens à acquérir une compréhension approfondie et un esprit critique face aux activités de RSE et leurs communications.

Les participants seront confrontés à différents cas d’entreprises, cas qui leur permettront de comprendre les défis auxquels font face les managers qui cherchent à développer et à communiquer sur leurs initiatives de RSE. Les participants seront également invités à partager leurs propres expériences en la matière sur les forums de discussion.

Ce cours vise à aider les participants à gérer et à communiquer sur la RSE avec différentes parties prenantes internes et externes. Il vise en particulier à:

  • soutenir les managers actuels et futurs dans leurs efforts pour positionner un leadership responsable, une production et une consommation durable au centre de leur vision stratégique.
  • aider les citoyens à jouer plus efficacement leur rôle de vigiles informés et de consommateurs responsables.
